Philadelphia Gear

Expertise in the Service Center Means Worry-Free Operation in the Field


Using state-of-the-art inspection and measurement techniques, each ISO certified regional service and manufacturing center is equipped to answer critical operational questions from our customers. Our goal is to provide the rotating equipment decision makers with the data they need to make informed decisions.

Each service center is capable of reverse engineering any gear drive or component to exact OEM specifications, which is backed by the same level of support that is applied to Philadelphia Gear designs.

In addition, by performing a detailed design review of both the gearbox and its application, the service center can determine the uprate potential of the unit.
