Over the past six decades Elektrostal Heavy Engineering Works (EZTM JSC) has made significant progress in designing, manufacturing and complete delivering of rolling mills to Russian plants and abroad. Rolling units and mechanisms are full of special gears used both in main drives and in ancillary equipment.
Engineers of gears design office have developed and produced more than 3200 gear projects (from 9 kg up to 80 tons). Each gear has several alternate designs distinguished from each other by assembly scheme and gear ratio. There are main gearboxes for tube rolling plants (Pervouralsk, Chelyabinsk, Slatina (Romania)), section-wire mill (Elektrostal), section-beam mill 700 (Nigeria), ball rolling mills (Gurevsk, Bekabad, Mexico, India) and for ring rolling mills ("Timken", USA) among those gear projects. Standard gears for tube electric welding plants, cold rolling mills and other metallurgical equipment are developed as well.
