Cleveland Gear Company has specialized in worm gear technology including industrial gears, helical gears, worm gears, and precision gears since 1912. You will find that our speed reducers have exceptional quality. We will fulfill your exact requirements and that is what continues to make Cleveland Gear one of the top manufactures of gears. In 1980, we joined a network of worldwide companies, collectively named Industrial Manufacturing Company (IMC), all committed to excellence in their industries. Our strong foundation is rooted in our leadership and longevity in the gear industry. We continuously strive to improve operations and custom design our products to meet our customer’s requirements.

As the first company in the United States to manufacture worm gearing for mass productions, we were the first to introduce a number of innovations, such as, worm gear speed reducers for handling over-hung loads, box-type housing to increase heat dissipation, and one-piece housing which allowed smaller worm gear units. Over a century of experience has allowed us to create gears with features such as single and multiple speed drives, varying gear designs, horsepower from 10-10,000, torque output up to 4.5 million lbs per inch as well as horizontal or vertically offset designs. All our products are fabricated with reliable materials and with uncompromising quality.

Not only do we provide enclosed drives, open gearing, and custom drives but we also offer rebuilding services. Our enclosed drives have a history of lasting 40-50 years and many of our customers prefer to refurbish these models over replacing them, giving a “same as new” gear for a lower cost. Our gears are ideal for demanding operating conditions and serve a myriad of applications including, steel production, mineral processing, material handling, mass transit, overhead cranes, rubber production and more.

Bevel Gears

Bevel Gears

A bevel gear is a toothed rotating machine element used to transfer mechanical energy or shaft power between shafts that are intersecting, either perpendicular or at an angle. This results in a change in the axis of rotation of the shaft power...

Helical Gears

Helical Gears

A gear is a particular kind of simple machine that controls the strength or direction of a force. A gear train is made up of multiple gears that are combined and connected by their teeth. These gear trains allow energy to move from...

Plastic Gears

Plastic Gears

A plastic gear is a toothed wheel made up of engineering plastic materials that work with others to alter the relation between the speed of an engine and the speed of the driven parts. The engineering plastic materials used in manufacturing plastic gears can be...

Spur Gears

Spur Gears

A spur gear is a cylindrical toothed gear with teeth that are parallel to the shaft and is used to transfer mechanical motion and control speed, power, and torque between shafts. They are the most popular types of cylindrical gears and...

Worm Gears

Worm Gears

A worm gear is a staggered shaft gear that creates motion between shafts using threads that are cut into a cylindrical bar to provide speed reduction. The combination of a worm wheel and worm are the components of a worm gear...
