Cleveland Gear Company has specialized in worm gear technology including industrial gears, bevel gears, helical gears, worm gears, and precision gears since 1912. You will find that our speed reducers have exceptional quality. We will fulfill your exact requirements and that is what continues to make Cleveland Gear one of the top manufactures of gears. In 1980, we joined a network of worldwide companies, collectively named Industrial Manufacturing Company (IMC), all committed to excellence in their industries. Our strong foundation is rooted in our leadership and longevity in the gear industry. We continuously strive to improve operations and custom design our products to meet our customer's requirements.
As the first company in the United States to manufacture worm gearing for mass productions, we were the first to introduce a number of innovations, such as, worm gear speed reducers for handling over-hung loads, box-type housing to increase heat dissipation, and one-piece housing which allowed smaller worm gear units. Over a century of experience has allowed us to create gears with features such as single and multiple speed drives, varying gear designs, horsepower from 10-10,000, torque output up to 4.5 million lbs per inch as well as horizontal or vertically offset designs. All our products are fabricated with reliable materials and with uncompromising quality. Not only do we provide enclosed drives, open gearing, and custom drives but we also offer rebuilding services. Our enclosed drives have a history of lasting 40-50 years and many of our customers prefer to refurbish these models over replacing them, giving a "same as new" gear for a lower cost. Our gears are ideal for demanding operating conditions and serve a myriad of applications including, steel production, mineral processing, material handling, mass transit, overhead cranes, rubber production and more.
