The HMC Difference for the Power Generation Industry

The Power Generation Industry

One of the largest populations of Coal Fire Power Plants lies within a 350 Mile Radius of HMC. Because of our service to many of these plants HMC has become a Bastille of support for them.

Our 5th Generation, Modern, Advanced Technology, Manufacturing Company’s reputation is synonymous with Rapid Response. Our Work Shift Infrastructure is available to you 24/7. And we complete our onsite services and delivery of critical repaired or replacement parts On Time Each Time.

We are the alternative.

As a result of our experience in Gearbox and Roll Wheel Assembly rebuilding and the many other services we offer, HMC was recently selected by a major boiler and pulverizer OEM as the first vendor to rebuild a Gear Box installed under one of their Coal Pulverizers.

Ask one of the largest Midwest coal fired generating stations about their Prototype, one of a kind, Coal Pulverizer Gear Box (references on request). After their urgent request for help from the OEM and other well known Gearbox Suppliers, HMC responded by Reverse Engineering and then upgrading and rebuilding this Gearbox before the OEM could supply their quote for repairing the box.

But perhaps the most important service we can offer your Industry is the Highest Quality Ball Mill Gearing of any competitor in North America.

Ask one of our Northern Florida Power Generation Customers about our higher quality, Certified AGMA 12, longer lasting Ball Mill Gears (references on request). HMC was the only Gear Company that qualified to manufacture their 200" Ball Mill Gears to AGMA Quality 12. We were selected after approval by their retained Gear Consultant.

Many of the Maintenance Supervisors and their Staffs, the people who managed and maintained these Generating Stations, are available to you through HMC as Consultants. These experts, our knowledgeable Engineers and Sales Technicians, and our New Field Service Partner; Sterling Boiler and Mechanical enable HMC to offer our Customers invaluable assistance with; Turn Key Projects, Maintenance and Care Issues, Time Savings for Component Change-Outs, Advance Technology Ball Mill Gears and Pinions, Gearbox Installation and Alignment Assistance, Mechanical Improvements & Upgrades, On Site Inspection Audits, or any other Service Related Problem or Requirement you may find yourself in need of.

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. 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 and components.

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.

The Hofler Rapid 6000 establishes HMC as the first Company in North America that can perform Electronic Gear Metrology and Reverse Engineering; (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.

Always have Gear Chart Metrology performed on your rotating elements for verification that you are getting the quality you are 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.

Visit our State of the Art Facilities and see your parts being processed. Then do the same with our Competitors.

Once you visit HMC you will understand "The Difference". We will help you understand what is required to produce Advanced Technology Replacement Parts that last longer. We have strived to develop Improved Product Designs that would make "The Difference" and Pass the True Test - "The Test of Time".

We will also help you appreciate why special heat treating processes such as Carburization are often suggested by our Engineers.

You will see HMC's Mirror like Gear Tooth Finishes.

You will develop a clear understanding of why HMC will not sub-contract Welding or any other critical manufacturing requirement.

And you will see our Exacting Quality Control Requirements.

And most importantly you will realize that buying from businesses with limited engineering that have to primarily sub-contract is risky and invites unrealistic deliveries, sub-standard quality, and less than desired service life.

Are you working with a Tight Budget; "Then Ask about our Rebanded Gears; with New Gear Warranties.

And we have many other Cost Saving Repair Solutions that carry New Warranties as well.

Let us suggest our Repair Solutions for Tables and Pivot brackets, Pulverizers, Shafts, Seal Assemblies, Rollers, and much more. Our many years of experience and knowhow with quality repair solutions have been recognized and accepted by many US and Canadian Power Generating Companies for over 25 Years. We can and we have saved our customers as much as 50% over the cost for New.

Our Products and Services are not always the Least Expensive because we will not compromise 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; especially when Critical 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.

Yours and our involvement combined with our Superior Engineering, Manufacturing Technology, and Field Service, is what will make "The HMC Difference" for your company.
