Western Gear To Build And Sell Rademakers Epicyclic Transmissions

The Power Transmission Division of Western Gear Corporation, Lynwood, Calif., has entered into a license agreement with Rademakers Aandrijvingen, B.V. of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The agreement gives Western Gear's Power Transmission Division the right to manufacture and sell Rademakers epicyclic planetary transmissions in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

This particular Rademakers product line is based on the Stoeckicht design which provides for a compact co-axial shaft transmission with low noise levels, high efficiencies and high reliability.

Applications for the Rademakers epicyclic planetary transmissions include speed increasers and decreasers for turbine generators, pumps and compressors and various marine propulsion reduction gears.
