A continuous evolution technology in both machinery and production methods made it possible for Hansen Hansen Industrial Transmissions to develop gear boxes that transmit more power than those -similar in size- of a previous range.
Thanks to the evolution in technology, and the continuous investment policy to keep up with the latest and most advanced techniques, each generation of Hansen industrial gearboxes brought along a significant power squeeze and a remarkable loss in weight.
Today, Hansen Industrial Transmissions is offering the highest power ratings for a given weight or size of gearbox.
Factors that have made this evolution possible:
High performance alloy steels in combination with optimal heat treatment: case carburising.
Use of high precision machines in the manufacturing process of housings and gears.
Parallel development towards increased performance of bearings.
Continuous investment in engineering know-how to optimise design concepts: e.g. use of short integral pinionshafts.
