We have one of the best-equipped gear shops in the world because we annually reinvest 25 to 40 percent of our revenues into new machines so we can stay at the cutting edge of technology and live up to our standards. Our hobbers, shapers and thread grinders come from the top manufacturers in the United States, Italy, Japan and Germany.
Our fine- and medium-pitch custom gears are trusted worldwide in everything, from telescopes and tractors, artificial elbows to aircraft, military lasers to medical examining tables, printers to race cars, and power tools to dental drills. They are even on the International Space Station and the Mars exploration rovers.
