For over 80 years, the Kohara Gear trademark KHK has been synonymous with stock metric gears. Recognizing the fact that 80% of the gears consumed in the USA are inch pitch, KHK USA is pleased to announce the availability of diametral pitch spur gears that have the same quality, performance, and cost as our traditional stock metric gears.
KHK USA, based in Mineola NY, stocks approximately 4,500 skus of metric gearing in the New York for same day warehouse shipping and can, within 3 business days, make shipments direct from the factory in Japan. With over 181 configurations of stock metric spur gears, helical gears, internal ring gears, gear racks, straight & spiral tooth miter gears, spiral, hypoid & Zerol bevel gears, screw gears, worms & wormwheels, ratchets & pawls, gear couplings, involute spline shafts & bushings and right-angle gearboxes, KHK USA offers an unmatched selection of standardized products with unbeatable availability. To assist the design engineer KHK USA also has available for free download, 3D CAD models of each product.
“With this new product line, we are able to leverage the factory expertise and provide a solution for those customers still using inch gearing”, said Brian Dengel, General Manager of KHK USA. “We are responding to the markets demand that we offer stock inch gears in 4DP, 6DP, 8DP, and 10DP. Our customers have looked to us for a solution to other vendors who either offer a ridiculous lead time or an astronomic price. KHK USA can now fill that need with a KHK quality standard product, that meets the customers need for quality, cost, and delivery.”
