Rapid Gear has been designing and manufacturing gears, gearboxes and special purpose machinery for more than 40 years, and has earned a reputation for its quality products and exceptional service during this time. The company’s 40,000-square-foot facility in Kitchener, Ont., and the expert staff it employs, enables it to handle gear cutting and machining operations, as well as the manufacture and repair of gearboxes, from initial assessment and engineering to machining and delivery. Thanks to this expertise under one roof, customers can be sure they’re getting the best solution.
It’s a combination of the company’s experienced machinists and its ongoing investment in advanced equipment that makes Rapid Gear an industry leader when it comes to machining quality custom gears. The company’s full-service machining department includes CNC turning and machining equipment, which enables it to meet each company’s unique requirements to the highest quality standards.
Rapid Gear has the capability to design and manufacture custom gears to metric and imperial specifications under strict AGMA (American Gear Manufacturers Association) and ISO quality control regulations. It can handle single units, as well as small production runs, using cast iron, nylon, alloy steel and bronze with hardened and ground teeth.
The company’s capabilities also include the rebuilding, repair and replacement of gearboxes and associated machinery. As part of its innovative rebuilding program, Rapid Gear’s experienced craftsmen redesign and restore old gears and gearboxes, saving customers money in the process. In fact, this approach can save customers up to 75 per cent of what a gear replacement would cost.
In addition to the services it offers at its Kitchener, Ont.-based plant, Rapid Gear also offers on-site inspection and field service. To learn more about its products and services, contact Rapid Gear.
