JACK-UP GEARS ARE MONSTERS IN SIZE AND GREAT IN SUSTAINABLE ENERGY SOLUTIONS

Jack-up platforms have long been the most popular mobile solution in marine operations. Jack-up rigs are used as exploratory drilling platforms and increasingly in connection with offshore wind turbine installation. Consisting of a buoyant hull fitted with a number of movable legs capable of raising the hull above the surface of the sea, a jack-up

THE WORLD’S FIRST LNG-FUELLED OFFSHORE CONSTRUCTION VESSEL BUILT FOR DEME IS POWERED BY WÄRTSILÄ WITH HELP FROM ATA

For the Orion, reliability is everything, and everything is at the biggest end of the scale. To give an idea of the size of the mega-calibre equipment involved, the main propulsion system has a capacity of 5,000kW per unit, the diameter of the propellers is between 3.2 and 3.9 m, and the bevel gears are

WITH THE BIGGEST BEVEL GEARS THE SMALLEST DETAILS COUNT

After using all sophisticated testing methods, we still count on human intuition.   The magnitude and measurements of projects particularly in the steel, mining and marine industries tend to make big headlines. These projects characteristically also impose the biggest demands on mechanical power transmission. State-of-the-art equipment, sophisticated testing and profound experience are all needed to

CASE HARDENING – THE HEAT IS ON

Gears are expected to function reliably for years or even decades under extreme loads, so case hardening is one of the key development areas in this specific field of mechanical power transmission. That’s why ATA’s Gear Doctors are ceaselessly researching heat treatment and material science. Water jet cutting, sample cutting, grinding and pol­ishing, adding to

WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH, THE TOUGH GET GOING

As the Gear Doctors of ATA, we are steadfast in using one facility to put innovation to a continuous test. A joint venture between ATA and Tampere University, the Test Bench involves testing the endurance of bevel gears in a special bevel gear endurance test rig. It is definitely a tough place for bevel gears. The loads

GEAR DOCTORS IN ACTION

At ATA Gears, we take pride in delivering not only bevel gears but also intelligent mechanical power transmission services for maximum lifecycle benefits. A result of decades of engineering experience gathered in thousands of mechanical power transmission solutions delivered worldwide, we offer application-specific bevel gear design and tooth contact simulation to achieve tooth geometry optimization.
