Spiroid, a division of ITW Heartland, has recently introduced an updated ‘Spiroid Application Guide’ as a part of its campaign to engage a new generation of engineers. Spiroid is a unique and powerful right angle gear form with a strong heritage. Since the 1950’s, the Spiroid brand has carved out a niche for itself as a high torque solution for small space, right angle applications. Since that time, as Spiroid became the right angle gear solution of choice for aerospace, aviation, defense and robotics applications worldwide, established engineers have become quite familiar with Spiroid’s strengths.
As Business Unit Manager, Jim Pospisil states, “Spiroid has a wide and loyal following among engineers who came of age in the 90’s, 80’s, and earlier. However, there is a new generation of mechanical and design engineers out there who have grown up augmenting their education through online tools, blogs, forums, social media and the like. Our intention is to become more adept at touting Spiroid’s strengths to those young engineers – where they educate themselves, and in a format that appeals to them. We anticipate that this will be the first of many such efforts.”
The new Spiroid Application Guide can be found on ITW Heartland’s website under the “Spiroid Gearing” tab: http://itwheartland.wpengine.com/Spiroid
