Transmission Overhaul

The Timken Aero Drives Systems team manufactures transmissions for military and commercial helicopters as well as overhauls and repairs them, whether just a single gear or a fully designed and tested transmission.

Transmission Overhaul

Timken produces a range of transmissions to meet the various performance requirements for both military and commercial helicopters. We have the capability to manufacture, assemble and test new gearboxes as well as overhaul and repair transmissions already in service. We can meet any customer’s requirement from a single gear to complete designed and tested transmissions, including the capability to manufacture master gears and curvic couplings.

Our production experience and know-how demonstrate not only our capability to manufacture highly complex gears and housings, but also the other technologies necessary to produce complete transmissions. Our comprehensive supply chain management enables us to integrate all the materials, components and details required for in-house manufacture, assembly and testing of transmissions to exacting specifications while meeting customer delivery requirements.

We are experts at holding the most demanding aerospace tolerances and requirements. Our in-house heat treat capabilities are second to none. We perform precision part manufacturing, processing and assembly of all components with rigorous quality controls and manufacturing procedures that meet or exceed the most stringent customer specifications.
