Akron Gear & Engineering (AGE), a BDI sister company, is a one-stop source for your gearbox needs. We repair and refurbish all makes and models of gearboxes up to 25 tons, including but not limited to parallel shaft, worm, helical / bevel, spiral bevel, multiple input / output, in-line, and planetary.

AGE uses extensive oil analysis tools provided by Real Services, and a thorough evaluation of your drive is made possible with computer modeling.  With this information, we deliver extended product life to our customers, resulting in a lower total cost of operation.

Much more than a gear shop, Akron Gear supplies quality, fast repairs by trained engineers, designers and technicians experienced in the special workings of gearboxes, open gearing and general machining applications. All of our work undergoes extensive inspection and test procedures following reassembly.



Machining / Turning: Akron Gear possesses the equipment and knowledge to handle some of the largest machining jobs – from 120” diameter turning to 5-Axis CNC machining.

Lubricant Analysis: AGE provides gearbox lubricant analysis through trusted partner REAL Services. REAL Services is the most comprehensive PDM Laboratory, with practical experience relating Equipment Particle Analysis (Ferrography) and used lubricant analysis for capital equipment reliability assessment to provide a return on investment of your PM program.

Gearbox Restoration: Every gearbox rebuild includes full disassembly and inspection of the internal drive components. Parts that can be reused are fluorescent penetrant inspected. Housings are sandblasted, inspected for damage and painted internally and externally with two-part epoxy paint. AGE rebuilds all makes and types of drives including planetary, parallel shaft, worm gear, and bevel gears. The repair center offers several service options, low cost teardowns, and fast turnarounds.
