Excel Gear Switches from Guns to Green

Gearbox producer Excel Gear has pivoted from producing a five-axis, materials handling crane and battleship gun turret gearbox to providing gearboxes for the wind power industry. In addition, Excel Gear has recently been asked to provide engineering as well as components for wind energy repair service companies. Excel Gear says that wind energy OEMs have only recently sought to extend their domestic supplier base to keep up with the growing demand for gearboxes, gears and repair services.

Excel Gear is an engineering-based company with expertise originating from the machine tool and materials handling equipment industries. The company designs and manufactures custom gearing. Excel Gear also designs, builds and tests gearboxes and complex high-speed spindles and CNC heads.
