Overton Chicago Gear
manufactures wind turbine gearing for some of the top manufacturers of wind turbine
gearboxes. A key to this industry is our ability to heat treat the gearing in our state-of-the-art heat-treat facility. We expect this to be an ongoing, major growth area for our company. This is an industry that requires the
highest standards, and the closest tolerances. Our customers know that we have the ability, capacity, and capabilities to meet these requirements.
We have made some of the largest, most complex design gearboxes ever made. We also make standard
gearboxes, right angle and parallel shaft per customer specification. We like to say the bigger the gearbox, the more complex the design, the better.
We can meet virtually any type of gearbox
requirements. This is a major part of our business.

Overton Chicago Gear can rebuild gearboxes that we’ve manufactured as well as competitors gearboxes. We can also upgrade these boxes. We can do
everything from retrofitting of boxes with new bearings and seals, up to completely replacing all rotating elements and providing a like-new box. Of course, we provide spare parts for all of the boxes that we have produced in the past.
