Installation & Alignment

Wherever you may be on this Planet we want you to understand the HMC Difference.

Our resources offer you invaluable Service, Assistance, and Cost Savings.

You have to be involved with your manufacturer to understand what is required to ensure Improved Component Service Life, which includes Design, Material Selections, and Quality Assurance. Large Gears and Pinions and other Machine Components are serious investments today owing primarily to volatile and run-away steel price increases. In fact Alloy Steel Forgings and Castings have increased in cost from 2004 by as much as 200 to 300%. That is why we have worked hard to develop solutions that will improve your bottom line. Solutions that will mitigate the negative impact of costly replacement parts.

HMC was recently chosen by Hofler of Germany to become the first ever in North America and second in the world to own their largest ever CNC Gear Grinding Machine.

Hofler 6000

The Hofler Rapid 6000 establishes HMC as the first Company in North America that can perform Electronic Gear Metrology; (Lead, Pitch, & Profile), on Gears of 6 Meters and larger in Diameter.

All of your Gearing no matter what size can be supplied with no less than AGMA Quality 12 by HMC.

AGMA 12 and higher quality gearing costs you more on the front end but will last far longer. Especially when installed and aligned properly by HMC.

Refer to our article on Installation and Alignment in our Technical Library.

Customers should always insist that Gear Chart Metrology is performed on their rotating elements for verification that they are receiving the quality they were promised.

HMC's advanced inspection technology "exceeds that of our competitors". We don't rationalize the quality your gears are made to we substantiate our quality before your gear comes off of our Gear Equipment by e-mail on every gear we manufacture; through the most modern On-board Inspection and Software Technology available anywhere in the world.

Our Products and Services are not always the Least Expensive because we won't compromise your Gear Service Life by selecting the more popular and more economical shelf steels. We instead use when necessary 21st Century Advanced Technology Forged and Cast Steels when Large Critical Open Gearing is required. Our Gear Materials offer increased hardness and strength, (Tensile and Yields), and offer improved Wear Resistance while remaining very forgiving, even when operating temperatures drop below - 40 Degrees Fahrenheit.
