Gear Box Repair/Rebuild

Gear Reducer Failure

Gear reducer failure is a serious problem which is why gearbox rebuild and repair is such an important part of what Delta Dynamics does. This reducer, pictured on the left, was designed and built by another machine shop to handle the increased horsepower that an Aluminum Smelter wanted to put through it. The gears lasted two weeks. 

The experts at Delta Dynamics were able to analyze the situation and perform industrial gearbox services. The large-width gears were theoretically capable of handling very high horsepower. However, the large torque in the system wound up the pinion shaft so that the actual gear contact length was much smaller than designed. With our help, gear reducer failure problems will be minimized and eliminated so that your machinery may work as it is intended to. 
  


Reducer Rebuilt

As shown in the image on the left, Delta Dynamics built a set of gears to replace the failed helical set above. The double helical design eliminates all thrust loads on the bearings which really emphasizes the strength and power of gearbox rebuild and repair, as the bearings were one of the constricting factors with the increased horsepower. The double helical design with axial float on the pinion allowed full-face contact regardless of the torsional windage. The gear reducer has been running for well over 6 years without any concern. 


Gear Reducer Rebuild

Delta Dynamics can build a new set of gears in an old housing, painted to your specifications with all new hardware and plumbing, without a "new" price. This box, pictured on the left, was rebuilt in less time than it would take to cast a new housing and met all customer requirements.

Custom Manufactured Gear Reducers

As an ISO custom gear design manufacturer, Delta Dynamics uses its decades of design and machining experience to provide its customers with precise, top quality, and expertly designed power transmission solutions. We want your machinery to run as smoothly as possible, which is why our experts have developed gear reducers that will sufficiently aid your company’s production process. We provide “fill-in-the-blank” design an

At Delta Dynamics, we offer a wide range of gear reducers which can handle any industrial application. The excellent quality built into the product at all stages of design and production, leads to increased life expectancy of both the gear reducer and the components driving and being driven by it. Our reducers can withstand greater external loads at higher torque levels, up to 3,500,000 in-lb output torque, with permissible low speed overhung loads up to 55,000lbs. 

Planetary reducers are an excellent option when it comes to gears in machinery. The speed of planetary gears slows down by the reduction of rotations per unit of time. Epicyclic gearing is the same as planetary gearing and is a system of gears that revolve around a central gear. It is crucial that planetary reducers are used because if this gear system begins to move too fast it can offset the revolving gears and cause an imbalance in your machinery. To allow your planetary gear systems to run as smoothly as possible, collaborate with Delta Dynamics to find the right measurements for your machinery. 
 
Delta Dynamics employs a highly-trained and certified production team who work directly under our production manager. The production manager works with the client from concept to completion of each job, matching the customers’ needs to the most suitable reducer and ensuring the manufacture of a top-quality product. We review and analyze each drawing sent to us, checking all specifications, dimensions, and tolerances, and formulate a streamlined production process. Where needed we offer advice on design, make revisions, and provide detailed geometrical calculations. We assist our clients with material sourcing and treating, or can work with customer-supplied materials. When the design has been signed off by the client, it goes to our production team who handle all aspects of manufacturing the part. We implement an ISO 9001 quality management system and quality control methodology, inspecting every essential dimension of every produced part to ensure that it meets the specifications and tolerances of the design. This level of precision ensures that all parts we produce fit perfectly into their assembly and increase the life expectancy of the part while reducing noise and shock within the reducer. Delta Dynamics can produce dimensions inspection reports for all parts, demonstrating conformance to design specifications and industry standards, upon request. Communication is maintained throughout the design and product processes between the client and the project team.

Custom Gearbox Housing

Delta Dynamics is ISO certified Custom Gear Design Manufacturer, well known and respected in the industry for its professionalism and dedication to ensuring its products exceed the customer’s requirements. We use our years of gearing and machining experience to provide “fill-in-the-blank” design service, acting as an extension of our customers’ design and machine shop teams at every stage of the production process.

The continued success of Delta Dynamics is founded on our ability to:

•    Assist each client from design to delivery of every part

Delta Dynamics has designed and manufactured a large number of custom gearbox housings, industrial gearboxes, and speed reducer housings for a variety of industrial applications. Our housings are manufactured from welded-steel, offering greater flexibility in design of custom parts. This greatly decreased cost for low volume production compared to casting, and a stronger, less porous and more impact- and shock-resistant solution that is durable and unlikely to crack. We produce housings for new and drop-in gear boxes, as well as replacement housings for existing reducers. 

 

Custom gearbox housing is useful because if you have specific mechanical components to enhance your machinery an all-encompassing gearbox won’t satisfy your specific needs. Any company would want their machinery to run as smoothly as possible and custom gearbox housing allows a machine to do so with sufficient mechanical support for moving components.  

An industrial gearbox would also be extremely useful, as Delta Dynamics has gearboxes suited for particular fields. The gearboxes available for machinery in different industries vary. When compared to a custom gearbox, an industrial gearbox demonstrates more of a set format with only slight variations related to the machine and the customization needed. As a company happy to fulfill your machinery needs, Delta Dynamics will evaluate and consult with you as to whether a custom gearbox housing unit or a traditional industrial gearbox is better for you. 

 

At Delta Dynamics we work with our customers from design to delivery, with our experienced and certified production team using their expertise and extensive knowledge to assist in the revision and perfection of each part’s design and production path. This “fill-in-the-blank” style of design and engineering assistance allows our customers to put our years of gear design and machining experience to work in ensuring they receive a precise, top-quality product that exceeds their expectations and requirements. Each drawing or part we receive is reviewed by our operations, engineering and production teams, with each specified dimension, tolerance, material and material treatment, as well as the part’s overall functionality and application, being thoroughly analyzed to guarantee superior form and function of the final, manufactured part. A streamlined and detailed production process then is created for each part, and is designed to guarantee that the manufactured part conforms closely to the precision and tolerances of the design, while remaining cost-effective to produce. Our production staff continually monitors the manufacturing process of each part as part of our ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System, to ensure an efficient, reliable and top-quality product. At numerous key stages of the production process dimensions of the part are inspected by our full-time inspection team to check that they fall within the tolerances specified in the design. Delta Dynamics can produce, upon request, a detailed Dimensions Inspection Report as our assurance of the precision and quality of our work. This attention to detail and dedication to precision ensures that all parts of an assembly fit into the housing with appropriate clearance and can be mounted with extreme accuracy to create efficient and effective gear meshing. This helps prevent collision, shock and wear on gears and other assembly parts, and increases the life-expectancy and durability of all parts, while reducing noise and wasted space within the housing.

 

A unique production path is created for each part or product we manufacture, with each person, from machinists to production supervisors and operations managers, working collaboratively from concept to completion. Our machine shop staff has extensive experience and knowledge in the operation of both manual and automated systems, and programs and runs all machines quickly and efficiently, producing consistently excellent results that meet or exceed design specifications without sacrificing cost-effectiveness and run-time efficiency.

 

Delta Dynamics has manufactured housings and other parts and assemblies for numerous industries. Our expertise and knowledge of gearing and machining have been used in the creation of innovative and effective solutions for a wide range of challenges, including multi-roll timed gearboxes and conveyor reducers for the forestry industry, top drives and draw works for companies in the oil & gas field of work, and cooling tower reducers and planetary drives for the steel industry. We have extensive experience in the use of a wide variety of materials, including countless steel and aluminum alloys, and material treatment processes, such as carburizing, nitriding, plating and peening, enabling Delta Dynamics to produce versatile, customized and long-lasting housings and parts. 

 

 

Our number one goal at Delta Dynamics is Customer Satisfaction. We strive to provide each customer with top quality, cost-effective and on-time solutions that meet or exceed both the customer’s and Delta Dynamics’ requirements. We work with the customer and provide design assistance at every stage of the production process, from design to delivery, implementing an outstanding Quality Management Process to guarantee that all parts and products made by Delta Dynamics meet our exacting quality demands. Delta Dynamics is large enough to accommodate large volume and dimension orders, while remaining small enough to maintain close connections with our clients and provide the extensive service we are known for. This makes Delta Dynamics your logical choice in Custom Gear Design Manufacturers.

Drop - In Replacement Gear Reducers

Steel Mill Galvanizing Line

These various-sized reducers were ordered to replace existing boxes which were no longer available from the OEM. The bolt pattern on the OEM’s new line of reducers rendered the old model obsolete. Delta Dynamics went on-site, measured the existing reducers and manufactured new reducers to work with the existing mounting configuration.


Cooling Tower Drive

This reducer was ordered to replace a reducer discontinued by the OEM. The reducer was manufactured with case-hardened alloy steel gearing, 100,000 L10 life bearings, redundant acrylic seals and cast-iron housing with four-point mounting to reduce noise and vibration.


Inline Reducer

The cast-iron housing of this Pulp & Paper mill reducer was easily broken. Other mill machinery had been built around the reducer, preventing the use of a different reducer model. Delta Dynamics built a new reducer with a welded steel housing and the old internal gearing. Reducer lifetime was increased from 4.5 months to over two years.


SR-18 Reducer

An older model reducer that was very common in Pulp & Paper mills was replaced by a new Delta Dynamics reducer with gearing made to AGMA standards. The service factor was more than doubled and maintenance requirements, noise, and cost were all substantially reduced.


Lubrication

A continuous-splash lubrication system is used in most ratios and speeds for gear reducers. This reducer was built with a Forced Lubrication system, using an oil pump, filters, heat exchangers, sight gauges and an alarm system. Both systems greatly increase the longevity and power ratings of reducers.
