Gearwheel Manufacturing

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Windlass Gearwheel of Cape size bulk carrier was damaged beyond repairs. With no trace of Maker’s original drawing, the task was even more difficult to manufacture a new Gearwheel. New drawings were prepared for manufacturing required Gearwheel. Entire process was carried out as per Class rules for manufacturing new Windlass Gearwheel.
A complete set of Main Gear was cast out of special Grade steel casting along with forged pinion as a replacement for a worn out windlass gear drive of a 270,000 DWT VLOC. Job included hobbing of gear teeth and final machining prior to dispatch to China for fitment on board at Zhoushan.
