All about metal! Ameridrives products utilized in many metal producing applications

Ameridrives Amerigear SM Series mill spindles are designed for long-lasting performance in heavy-load, continuous-duty applications. The spindles can accommodate high misalignment angles due to the constant change in material thickness, roll size and roll change requirements.

Amerigear couplings (AGMA) provide reliable connections between drive motors and gearboxes.

Both products are used on a wide range of mill applications including:

  • Blast furnaces
  • Continuous casters
  • Roughing mills
  • Finishing and temper mills
  • Cold mills
  • Pipe mills
  • Rail cars
  • Transfer tables
  • Coilers and uncoilers
  • Ore and coal conveyors
  • Coke and barrel reclaimers
Amerigear Gear Coupling

Ameridrives Americardan® 5000 and 3000 Series universal joints are known throughout the industry for their reliable performance in continuous caster applications. Due to superior engineering and mill expertise, Ameridrives U-Joints often replace gear mill spindles on cold mill applications. Units are also on multi-stand roughing mills, finishing and temper mills, piercing pipe mills, coilers and down coilers, and rail cars.

What about metal processing? Ameridrives products used there, too!

Ameridrives Amerigear SL & SF Series mill spindles connect motors and drive rollers on applications such as levelers where they can accommodate high misalignment due to changes in material thickness.

Along with Amerigear couplings & Americardan® 5000 and 3000 Series U-Joints, these particular mill spindles are used on a wide array of mill applications on the metal processing side of things – including annealing, pickling and coating, and galvanizing lines, levelers, slitters, accumulators, cold forming mills, coilers and uncoilers. Visit us at booth 2171 to learn more about our technologies for the metal producing and metal processing markets!
