The Timken Company has opened a new, 27,000 sq.ft., state-of-the-art gear drive manufacturing facility in Houston. An integral part of the Timken Power Systems group, the new plant will significantly improve production efficiencies in the manufacture of Philadelphia Gear brand high speed drives. Timken opened the dedicated facility to expand the company’s ability to capture strategic opportunities with new and legacy original equipment customers.

To meet growing demand, Timken Power Systems equipped the facility with two 5-AXIS machines that employ gear milling technology instead of the traditional hobbing process. These machines can perform up to six different operations used to produce helical gears, shafts and pinions from raw material, with the potential to reduce the OE production cycle by weeks.
