With leading expertise in gearing for almost 100 years, the Muffett name has become synonymous with exceptional service and quality in the manufacture of precision gears, gearboxes and other precision-engineered components. We are typically involved in the conceptual design stage to ensure the final production process is cost-effective and the gear application works perfectly. We spend time understanding our customers’ requirements and offer exceptional flexibility to find the right solution.
From 4mm to 400mm in any machinable material, we specialise in gear cutting, and precision-engineering of components used in off-highway vehicles, aerospace and medical applications, to name a few. We also assemble geared components, including electro-mechanical parts, to provide a complete solution. Our extensive investment in the best equipment and people means we can offer clients a complete service that meets the highest benchmarks in precision, technology and skill.
We also manufacture and build to customer’s specification.
As the company to come to for gearing and gear assembly, we ensure we always have stock or fast turnaround availability on a wide range of standard bevel gearboxes.
We spur gears cut to customers’ own specifications – all available with detailed dimensional reports produced from our Zeiss CMM.
Electrical discharge machining (EDM)
With this facility we can produce components to almost any shape without additional tooling; this is especially useful for prototyping. The maximum work piece dimensions are W x D x H 350 x 250 x 220 mm.
Muffett Gears supplies splined shafts to diverse industries. We manufacture to tooth specifications including BS, JIS, DIN and ANSI, and can accommodate customers’ own specifications as well.
We can produce bespoke racks to your required specifications, in order to ensure the highest level of precision-engineering and gear assembly solutions.
We have a range of standard worm gearboxes. We are also able to produce bespoke worm gearboxes from individual customer designs. For more information, click on the link below.
Worms and Wormwheels
We are able to manufacture worms and wormwheels to customers’ specifications, offering a high degree of customisation. Click on the following link for more detail.
Our manufacturing facilities are complimented by a separate 1300sq ft assembly department. This offers a complete gear assembly capability to bring together both externally sourced proprietary parts and manufactured components into completely assembled products.
Our expert in-house engineers provide precision milling on four CNC machining centres with 4th axis, capable of highly complex geometry using the latest CAD/CAM software, which is ideal for demanding applications such as those in the medical and aerospace sectors. Our equipment is overseen by highly skilled engineers.
Muffett Gears offers expert turning for precision-engineered components and gearbox components, using eight state-of-the-art CNC lathes. Working with exceptional technological capability, our highly skilled and committed engineers get the very best out of every project.
When precise accuracy is critical to delivering the end product, exceptional precision grinding makes all the difference. At Muffett Gears, our technology can make use of every last thousandth of a millimetre. This level of precision is ideal for complex applications from aerospace components to automotive gearboxes and medical scanners.
At Muffett Gears we take great pride in producing precision gears and components that reach the highest quality standards in the market. All our products and technical processes undergo thorough and vigorous testing to ensure the highest levels of precision are achieved, and we use Advance Quality Planning techniques to maintain rigorous quality control at each production stage.
