Matex Gears has partnered with Virteom to engage our customers about our products and the technology behind the scenes that make it all happen. In this video, Jacqui and James talk about the great capability to get customized planetary gears with Matex Gears. Watch or read the transcription below!
Matex have a very extensive line of planetary gears and accessories. In addition to this great variety, you can also get customized gears. These products aren't necessarily a one size fits all. We have a wide range of planetary gear and accessory products that might fit your specific application, but every once in a while, we get the people asking us, "Can we customize this product for our very specific need?"
And the answer is yes, but there is a caveat. Generally, we don’t do any one-off projects because the expense would just be astronomical. But, if you have the volume that could justify them, we would certainly take a look at working with you on that. We have done that in the past and have been very successful at it for many diverse applications.
We can work with both the input and the output for custom gears. If you have a specific type of input you want to enter our gear into, like sun gear, we can work with that. A lot of times we have couplings and other ways of handling that. Then again, a lot of people need output shafts or something very custom to their particular product. If we can work with you on that, we will. If we can't do it, we can also give you the necessary information to cut your own customizations.
We are currently doing customization designs for several manufacturers. We add value to what we sell by working with you for your exact needs.
