Gear Coupling Design
The Xtek geared spindle couplings are highly engineered and customized products. The extensive engineering team, which includes mechanical and metallurgical engineers, is involved with every aspect of the geared spindle coupling; from concept and design, through manufacturing, to evaluation, and the eventual servicing and reconditioning. This engineering evolution ensures that each geared spindle coupling is optimized for peak performance.
Xtek has been manufacturing and reconditioning geared spindle couplings for rolling mills around the world for over 50 years. Our designs are based upon this vast experience and knowledge of the mills, and when coupled with our captive manufacturing and Tool Steel Process (TSP), the end result is a very robust geared spindle coupling tailored for your specific application. Xtek couplings contain many state-of-the-art mechanical and metallurgical enhancements that have been supported by our use of some of the most advanced design tools available:
