The increased geometric accuracy and fast turn-around time helps our customers boost their manufacturing productivity and optimize equipment life when they need it.  We engineer, design, and rebuild complex gearing for the industrial sector, as well as the wind energy market. Brad Foote supplies parts to other industries such as oil, gas, mining, heavy construction, marine, and many more.

Our customers' needs are diverse depending on the unique industry they are in. Our Five-Axis machine helps us deliver the precision bevel and complex herringbone gears our customers need to keep their business running smoothly and profitably, day-in and day-out. For bevel gears, the Five-Axis technology increases our productivity by 50%!  The Five-Axis Machining Center has three linear axes and two rotary axes.  The unique B axis kinematics within the head is a great advantage to any other five-axis machining center on the market. According to Nowak, this is better for complex 3-D shapes and 3-D coordinate conversion.

Nowak concludes, “We developed an innovated process and now can make a herringbone gear with the DMU 210 P Five-Axis, a part that was impossible for us to deliver before. This new herringbone gear helps solve problems for our oil industry customers. We think this new gearing technology will enable us to deliver precision gearing to meet the most demanding customer applications, which will boost our customers' manufacturing productivity and help to make them even more successful. Increasing our customers’ business success is what it is all about.”
