The gear industry is one under high levels of pressure and demand, considering that gears are used in just about every other industry. This very fact makes Hydra-Lock a premier choice to provide work-holding solutions for gear makers, because we have been developing innovative chucks and arbors that hold various ID/OD components ranging in size, material and complexity since the 1940s. From large locomotive gears pulling hundreds of tons across the country to balancing turbine blades used in generating thousands of kilowatts of power, Hydra-Lock’s impact can be felt everywhere. Our tool-holding and part-holding configurations save time and maximize our customers’ machine capabilities in the gear industry.
Because Hydra-Lock was founded in Southeast Michigan over 60 years ago, the automotive industry is one that we have extensive experience working in. It is a key market that has been engrained here for over 100 years, and will continue to be vital to the U.S. for years to come. However, organizations in related vehicle industries have turned to Hydra-Lock throughout the years to meet their work-holding demands.
Aerospace – Defense – Medical
From bone screws and heart valves to jet fighters and space shuttles, Hydra-Lock’s expertise and impact can be felt inside the human body, outside the Earth’s atmosphere, and everywhere in between. Our expertise within the aerospace, defense and medical industries stems back decades, which allows us the capability to engineer part-holding and tool-holding solutions for any component. And as the industries have evolved since the 1940s, Hydra-Lock has evolved with them, developing innovative chucks and arbors that hold various ID/OD components ranging in size, material and complexity.
