BRAINTREE, MA — Altra Industrial Motion has published a white paper entitled “Making the Grade in Metals” which outlines the firm’s technology solutions in worldwide metal producing, forming and fabricating operations.
“The multiple companies of Altra operate as the premier manufacturers of gear drives, clutches, brakes, couplings and other power transmission products that are at the heart of literally hundreds of applications in the metals industry,” says David Brooksbank, Altra Director of Marketing. “It’s not uncommon to find as many as 25 Altra gearboxes on a galvanizing line that might consist of a recoiler, an uncoiler, flattener, leveler, pinion stand, pinch rolls and bridle drives.”
Altra’s technology portfolio for the metals industry covers virtually every operation from light-duty to heavy-duty applications where high-quality, rugged motion control products are needed to help ensure high productivity and reduce critical downtime.
Well-known Altra brands that have served as “standards” in the metals industry for many decades include Nuttall Gear, Delroyd Worm Gear, Wichita Clutch, Industrial Clutch, Warner Electric, Formsprag Clutch, Twiflex, Ameridrives and T.B. Wood’s.
