A Fresh Take on Spur Gears Extends Machinery Lifespan

MECA & Technology Machine Produces High-Grade Replacements

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin – Securing a dependable supply of high-quality replacement spur gears for equipment that otherwise is in good operating condition is a challenge for manufacturers looking to extend the life of machinery. MECA & Technology Machine, Inc., a premier producer of high-quality power transmission components, specializes in engineering spur gears that outperform most aftermarket parts.

“Our customers find that investing in new spur gears enhances the performance of machinery that otherwise might be headed for the scrap heap,” said Mick Karchinski, Vice President of Sales at MECA & Technology Machine. “In some cases, aftermarket spur gears may not even be an available option.”

Spur gears are a traditional type of gear that feature straight teeth and are mounted on parallel shafts. However, their lifespan is limited by the stress of engagement with teeth on companion gears. Engineers at MECA & Technology Machine work with machinery owners to design and produce tight-tolerance spur gears for a wide range of applications.

“Our team has the expertise to meet exceptionally tight tolerances up to American Gear Manufacturers (AGMA) Class 12 of .0005,” Karchinski said. “Our ability to deliver high-quality replacement spur gears turns a relatively small investment into a significant capital expenditure savings.”
