Drawworks and Marine Winch Transmissions
Company: A world-class manufacturer of clutched transmissions for hoist and drawworks used in off-shore oil drilling and production rigs.
Challenge: Provide a reliable, cost-effective single source for multiple parts and components previously sourced from multiple vendors.
ProTec Solution: Multiple incumbent suppliers were not able to provide compatible sintered and paper friction gears and corresponding steel plates in a timely fashion. The customer required tier-one parts which would meet or exceed the existing suppliers’ quality.
Working with customer engineers and production managers, ProTec delivered samples which excelled in rigorous 3rd party laboratory testing and analysis in the first round. Production parts required sophisticated heat treatment, speiclized hardening, and precise finishing. All parts were delivered and accepted on a tight schedule. ProTec even made special international delivery arrangements which save the customer thousands of dollars in cross-border shipping fees.
