Speed to Market

Challenge

A new customer to Avon Gear needed a rush order on two difficult gears in less than 1 week, due to a line down condition. They contacted our sales team to determine if we could help, because the current supplier was unable to produce the spline with a diametral pitch of 1.5 (17 mod)

New Product Launch

ChallengeSingle Piece Idler Gear

Our customer designed a double helical idler gear containing crown, tip modification & grind tolerances as a mission critical part for a new truck line. This part was needed in volume production in 6 months to achieve program launch. The customer's current suppliers were only quoting the part as a two piece laser welded design due to it's complexity and the specific tolerance requirements. The customer was concerned with potential failure of the weld due to it being a high torque application.

That's when Avon Gear was called in taking on the challenge to design an idler gear that could be manufactured as a single piece while maintaining the required tolerances.
