Unlike most gear manufacturers, Performance Gear Systems designs and builds many gear tools in-house, from prototype to production multi-cavity gear tooling. Through use of Multi-Axis milling, and advanced EDM and CNC machining, we are able to streamline the tool building process while controlling gear tooling accuracy from start to finish. This also means reduced downtime and overhead, faster product turnaround, and quicker response to design changes during the product development phase. We also design, inspect and manufacture our own electrodes, to ensure optimal quality, timeliness and efficiency.

We make consistent, substantial investments in our gear tooling equipment, software and training, to utilize every advancement in machine accuracy and technology. This affords us extremely accurate cavity and core geometry, and the ability to produce the most precisely molded gear possible.

Our state of the art tooling department is capable of producing production and prototype molds in house. Our goal is to machine extremely accurate cavity and core geometry as it directly pertains to the gear teeth. One thing our experience has shown is that a precise cavity will produce a precise molded gear. Over the last few years, we have made large investments in equipment, software, and training due to the recent advancements in machine accuracy. These advancements have resulted in a much higher cavity and core accuracy.

Driven to constantly improve the manufacturing process while controlling product quality from start to finish, Performance Gear Systems has developed extensive in-house Tooling capabilities, which allows for reduced downtime and overhead, faster product turnaround, and ease of modification to accommodate design changes during the product development stage.

Unlike most gear systems manufacturers, PGS designs and builds many tools in-house, ranging from prototype to high volume production multi-cavity tooling. Using multi-Axis CNC milling, and advanced EDM machining, we are able to streamline the tool building process while controlling tooling accuracy from start to finish. This also means reduced downtime, faster product turnaround, and quicker response to design changes during the product development phase. We also design, inspect, and manufacture our own gear electrodes in-house, to ensure superior quality.
