Reverse Engineering & Design
Reverse Engineering is a term we use to describe the process when we receive a sample part from a customer where no drawings or details for manufacturing are available. In most cases, these parts have little or no support available or the OEM has a very long lead time for emergency situations when a line is down. Rapid Gear engineers will do very accurate measurements to get all the gear details required for manufacture as well as full material specifications so that heat treatments and material selection are accurate. With this data, we can make a gear accurately even from a very worn or broken part. This service is vital for the industries that we service.
