Renold Gears' PM Units Ensure the Wheels Continue to Drive



When a Czech tyre manufacturer was looking for a reliable gearbox solution to drive its Calendar machines, they turned to Renold Gears.

Mitas is one of the the Czech Republic's largest tyre manufacturers with approximately 6000 employees in three locations: Prague, Ottrokovice and Zlin.
Mitas produces specialist tyres for forklift trucks, agricultural and construction machinery, off road vehicles, bikes and aircrafts.

Renold PM Series geared motors and smaller jPM worm gear units have been fitted at one of the most critical points in the Mitas manufacturing process, the Calendar machines. They have been delivering faultless reliability 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The PM Series, an industry leading gearbox design, is a single piece case which allows worm gears, helical-worm gear combinations and complete helical-bevel gears to be assembled into the same case thus giving the customer the advantage of flexibility of ratios and mounting variations.

Ivan Komanec, Maintenance Manager for Mitas in Prague, commented: "Renold's products have proven over the last ten years that they perform consistently under extremely arduous conditions.  We count on Renold as a manufacturer of high quality transmission products we can really rely on.  In addition we appreciate the local support we get from the Czech Renold sales operation who always provide the smooth service we need to keep our production running without suffering costly breakdowns."

Mitas engineers are pleased to report that Renold Gears' products have achieved the same results in their Zlin and Ottrokovice manufacturing plants.
