  • A MACHINIST AND A COMPUTER WIZARD

    Half of Mr. Jari Piili’s daily working time is spent at the computer – programming and designing 3D models. So is he a software developer?No, he’s a machinist specially trained for his job by his employer, ATA Gears, designer and manufacturer of world-famous bevel gears. A machinist’s job is not dirty work requiring brute force. No
  • FREE YOUR MIND WITH 5-AXIS: OFFERING A STRONG COMPETITIVE EDGE

    All kinds of cylindrical gears can be manufactured using 5-axis technology. A good example are herringbone gears used in applications where the rotating speed of the gear is really high, for example in the reduction gear of a gas turbine. To achieve a smaller housing with cheaper and simpler bearing arrangements, using the 5-axis technology
  • CUTTING-EDGE RESEARCH BY KONGSBERG AND ATA GEARS MAKES NEW DISCOVERIES ABOUT TFF

    André Böhme has a mission: fighting TFF. Subsurface fatique, TIFF or TFF, is causing several unforeseen gear failures and thruster replacements every year. It is the predominant failure mode on bevel gears used in azimuth thrusters onboard state-of-the-art vessels. And fatigue or overload can destroy any gear. For good reason, there is very innovative, comprehensive
  • WHEN SEW-EURODRIVE AND ATA GEARS COMBINE THEIR EXPERIENCE, WONDERFUL THINGS HAPPEN

    There are two SEW-EURODRIVE companies in Finland, SEW Industrial Gears in Karkkila and SEW-EURODRIVE in Hollola. Both are ATA Gears’ customers: The Karkkila unit has many of its bevel gear pairs manufactured by ATA Gears for use in the new gear units it itself manufactures, while the Hollola unit sources parts and components for the
  • TAKE THE TRAM!

    The tram is the way to easier and cleaner everyday living. Ten purpose-built bridges and seven structures renovated for safe and smooth transport will soon enable 19 brand-new tramcars to glide along 15 kilometres of gleaming heavy-metal tramlines. Four years of construction work have kept section 1 of the Tampere tramway right on schedule ready
  • 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
  • ARE YOU IN NEED OF BIG BEVEL GEARS?

    ATA Gears and Woorim Machinery Co., Ltd, a Korean company which has been focusing on gear and speed reducers for the past 40 years, are proud to combine their expertise to serve POSCO (Pohang Iron and Steel Company), in 2020 ranked the 6th largest steel producing company in the world (according to steeltechnology.com). The recent

  • IT’S NOT JUST STEEL

    Service is a top priority at BGH and will be further improved. In addition to the customer-oriented production of special steels and the associated material consulting, the focus is on steel storage and the machining and processing of products. Not only have we ever stricter requirements for bevel gears and other important elements of mechanical
