Open Gearing from Single Source
Using proprietary design software, and the latest 3-D modeling techniques, gear sets are optimized for functionality, manufacturability and cost.
Performance ratings are established using recognized ISO and AGMA standards, in acoordance with application and customer requirements.
Research & Development
With an emphasis on increased load capacity and improved service of life, recent metallurgical developments, such as properity FerryNod® high-hardness ductile iron casting grades, ensure that FERRY-CAPITAIN will maintain a leadership position in the supply of cast open gears.
With two foundry locations in France, FERRY-CAPITAIN is the only supplier in the world capable of casting both steel and ductile iron gear materials having minimum guaranteed hardness of 340 BHN.
Unlike many other gearing suppliers that rely on subcontracted castings or fabrications, FERRY-CAPITAIN can provide gear materials that are specifically tailored to provide the optimum combination of mechanical properties and cost for a given application, while maintaining control over quality and delivery.
Machining and Cutting
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) / Inspection
Fixed-center and crane roll tests may be carried out as a final visual means of verifying that the gear teeth will
