Ronson Gears ground gearing

Ronson Gears offers a gear-grinding service on a make-complete or on a gear-grind-only basis.

Using world-class computerised numerical control (CNC) gear grinding technology out of Germany, its third brand-new Hofler gear grinder is due to arrive in April.

Ground gears feature an abrasive wheel for precision grind of its tooth profile, giving them the ability to run quieter and spread the ware more evenly compared to a cut or machined gear.

They are also built in accordance to application requirements; where quiet running, minimum vibration and greater power transmitting capability are required, gears will normally be ground.

Gear grinding can also eliminate any distortion which may occur during heat treatment and improves surface finishes. This ensures a longer gear life for users.

Ground gears are not only used in traditional parallel axis gear boxes, but also gear boxes of vibratory screens and exploratory drill head, as well as in underground mining vehicles.
