Your maritime propulsion system, railway locomotive or crusher in a quarry or mine is only useful when in motion. Availability, durability and safety are the main drivers at their mechanical heart, the bevel gears and other mechanical power transmission components that keep them going. At ATA Gears, we are on a permanent KPI mission: Fulfilling to our very best ability those exact needs underlying your main drivers – measured in machine performance and business success. With the experience of over 80 years in gear design and manufacture, and having done all it takes to reach truly value-adding services, we believe we can have a meaningful dialogue with you and your process and make a real difference, with an optimized, data-driven solution for even the most demanding application. Digital, smart and interactive, our mechanical power transmission solutions boost your operation, machine or process.

Thanks to ATA’s gear optimization service, we were able to increase the effective contact pattern size by 25%.

Our strategic target is to seek, find and deliver opportunities and solutions with wide application in the field of power transmission – products and services which ensure our customers the greatest value.
