Assistance with your project requirements

We have helped so many of our customers achieve their optimum target design as well as help reduce manufacturing costs.

Mini Gears has become our first point of contact for new gear designs and actively support us in providing robust and quality gearing solutions for our products

Although Mini Gears does not offer a definitive gear design service, we do offer design help.  Once a customer has got the concept for a new gear design they come to us to ask our advice whether it can be produced economically and to make sure the design is functional and fit for purpose.

With our vast knowledge of manufacture we can recommend suitable materials and machining finishing processes that give the most economic solution to the final product cost. We also have one of the latest gear design programmes which we can use when a customer is finalising their drawing.

Commercial Gears from 25mm – 600mm dia. Max. pitch = 8 Mod (3DP)
Internal Gears Max. pitch = 6 Mod (4DP) Max. face width = 125mm (5″)
High Precision Gears up to 400mm dia. (Gear checking up to 350mm dia. in house)
