Sectors across the globe depend on the company’s high-quality products, as well as its gearbox rebuild and maintenance capabilities, for reliable, long-lasting service, particularly in demanding environments like the military.
A challenging environment
Gears and gearboxes used in military and navy applications are exposed to high humidity and salt water, which corrodes metals and contaminates lubricants. They are also exposed to high ambient temperatures, which break down lubricants and seals, reducing bearing life. Another challenge associated with such environments is the variable speeds that create uneven wear and additional stresses on gearboxes. Rapid Gear is equipped to handle these demands and meet the needs of this industry with its high-quality products and superior service.
When it comes to military applications, Rapid Gear is known for the specialized gearing it manufactures for the sector. The company, which is Controlled Goods Certified (CGC), also specializes in the rebuilding, maintenance and replacement of gearboxes for the military and navy, and has expertise when it comes to the repair and replacement of leaking seals, gearboxes, and input cartridge bearings and seals. In addition, Rapid Gear offers onsite inspection of gearing in military applications to ensure reliable performance.
