Boosting the lifetime of gear units

The history of industrial cement production is directly related with the improvement of grinding mills and therefore also with the invention of driving systems. Although it is known since mid of 19th century how to form a cementitious material with hydraulic properties it took more than half a century until the first industrial cement production lines were established. As a core component of these production lines, gearboxes for grinding mills are in use since the 1920ies. Beside the continuous invention of new geared solutions one of FLSmidth MAAG Gear’s major efforts is to keep long-serving gears running even longer.
