A customer came to Rj Link needing a solution to an existing gearbox that was more flexible, controllable, and robust to meet the vigorous requirements of their dredging application which was being used for river, pond, and coastal area projects. The lack of flexibility in the existing gearbox hampered the company’s ability to serve their customer, and limited the scope of work that they could get done. This made it a challenge for the company to grow in the new market segment, and fulfill the project specifications in a timely manner.
What Rj Link looked at with this marine type application, was to offer a more flexible, auxiliary gearbox drive that would be more controllable to adhere to a dredge pump. The engineering team at Rj Link came up with a two speed industrial grade gearbox, which offered greater control of speed and depth for the dredge pump. Not only did the new design improve the operation performance, and flexibility control of the pumping distance, it also helped control cost and enable the company to increase its market reach.
