  • 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
  • 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.
  • 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
  • THE CARING 10+

    In today’s turbulent and yet highly competitive business environment, companies can no longer rely on sales alone to meet targets, close deals and maintain business momentum long-term. Even service that’s proactive, offering a solution before an issue or disturbance occurs may not suffice. The pressure is on: Companies must get their entire customer experience right. 
  • TAKE IT FROM THE GEAR DOCTORS: MEASURING IS ONE THING, KNOWING IS ANOTHER.

    While modern computer-aided analysis tools give super-accurate stress results for a certain load, the actual maximum load is often the least known element in what the designer can be sure of when designing a gear drive for a dynamic environment.  How to manage that dynamic simulation efficiently and master the possible cross-system interactions occurring between the
  • THE GEAR DOCTOR’S ORDERS: START LEARNING AND BEING PROACTIVE

    ”I agree with all this, but it does not concern our industry or my firm.” Now where have you heard that before? Realizing that the absolute basics of our business today are changing often takes a long time, as we “rationally” try to prove that this isn’t so. Therefore every manager should stop and think
