Hindle specialise in the manufacture of precision gears and components related to transmitting motion.

The word “precision” is over-used in manufacturing but it is the perfect description of the world we operate in. Gear profiles are shapes that are measured in 2-3 microns. This is an order of magnitude compared to conventional engineering.

So we invest in state of the art measuring equipment and our staff are trained to exceed these expectations.

The making of gears involves most conventional manufacturing techniques so you will not be surprised to see a wide selection of products in our portfolio. The list below is indicative but not exhaustive.

Gears

More

We manufacture spur and helical gears and shafts in the size range:

0.5 mm to 20mm module
Usually ISO 1328 grade 6 or better
10mm to 1000mm diameter
Up to 800mm face width
Shafts up to 1500mm in length

Machined Components

More

We use conventional machining processes such as turning, milling & grinding for: housings, coupling flanges, brake packs, shafts etc.

The machining envelope isĀ 1600mm diameter * 800 mm length.

Forgings

More

We source high quality forgings through our Chinese factory. This has enabled us to find cost competitive alternatives to the domestic market with higher quality levels and reduced lead-time.

Specialising in rolled rings, closed die and hand forgings in a range of steels including 42CrMo4, SAE8620H, and 18CrNiMo7-6.
