Manufacturing Capabilities

When it comes to high-speed gear drives, it all comes down to performance. All the features and benefits in the world don’t mean a thing if a unit doesn’t run reliably. At Philadelphia Gear, we design every gearbox—and have done so for more than 120 years—with one goal: to provide the highest possible levels of uptime, all the time.

  • Housings – Rugged design adds strength and rigidity, helping to maintain precise alignment of gears and bearings. Cast iron or fabricated housings are available for custom designs.
  • Bearings – Split, steel-backed, Babbitt-lined precision journal bearings with thrust faces are engineered to account for axial loads.
  • Shafts – Precision machined from heat-treated, high-quality alloy steel, these shafts are oversized to rigidly maintain gear alignment and protect from overload.
  • Gear Design – Philadelphia Gear high-speed gears are designed, manufactured and assembled with state-of-the-art technology.
  • Gears and Pinions – All gears and pinions used in Philadelphia Gear high-speed designs are precision finished to meet applications that require a variety of AGMA/API specifications.
  • Seals – Aluminum labyrinth seals prevent shaft leaks at extreme temperatures.
  • Efficiency – Over 98%, running at full capacity, is achieved by precise gearing manufacturing processes and highly accurate bearing alignment.
  • Dynamically Balanced – This assures smooth operation at high rotating speeds of all rotating elements.
  • API/Instrumentation – All units can be built to API standards and have a wide range of available instrumentation options to satisfy any application requirements.
