For more than 70 years we’ve taken ideas from rough concept through development to fabrication of prototypes. In our portfolio, there’s likely a proven gear or shaft design that’s similar to the products you need. You’ll get it in spec and on time … every time.

Schafer Gear Works has the technology and capabilities to reverse engineer your sample to determine its specifications and help you produce more.
