• Speed Increasing Gearboxes in High Demand

    Gearboxes in Assembly

    Speed Increasers

    Rj Link has been seeing an increase in requests from companies needing speed increasing gearboxes.  A recent project consisted of designing a gearbox for a new PTO driven manure pump application.  Another recent project consisted of designing a gearbox for a new customer who was retrofitting auxiliary hydraulic pump systems that were being used at a work site.  Rj Link’s Engineering team designed both of the gearboxes using a standard D190 casting.  This resulted in a savings to both customers, as there were no tooling costs being passed on from the castings.  The gearboxes are currently being assembled and will be shipping out today.
