Since its founding in 1947, Arrow Gear Co has provided precision gears to industries including aerospace, defense, mining, racing, irrigation, and power tool. The company produces a full range of gears, including spur and helical designs and precision spiral-bevel gears for aerospace and commercial applications in mining equipment, automotive racing, and agricultural technology. Through their On-Demand ground-tooth spiral-bevel gear program, they are able to produce ground-tooth spiral-bevel gears from a variety of their stock gears in less time than it would take to produce a gear from scratch, says Ron Kauzlarich, Arrow Gear facilities manager. A visit with local dealer Yamazen to the Toyoda Machinery facility in Arlington Heights, IL, however, made a lasting impression. The Toyoda's larger opening allowed easier operator access, resulted in faster setup time, and overall reduction in production time. Design/ergonomic features that make setup on the Toyoda easier include height of table and bigger doors that make access easier.
