Steel ComponentsWe offer customers a wide variety of precision steel components as a value-added extension of Timken® steel. Components range from simple cut rings to complex, highly engineered ready-to-finish components.
Beyond just manufacturing expertise, we offer a complete supply chain solution that provides customers with steel components in whatever stage of completion required, in the quantities and on the delivery schedule that best fits production needs.
Through our supply chain system, we provide cost-effective raw material for planetary gear sets, manual gears, input/output shafts and other transmission components.
We consider the customer’s production capabilities or requirements, our capabilities and those available from our network of manufacturing partners. Then we develop an optimal supply chain solution that provides the component required by the customer, at the lowest possible per-unit price. This enables a lean approach to supply chain management for our customers.
Every production and supply chain process is customized to meet the specific needs of each customer.
With steel value-added components, customers can avoid capital investment and move away from non-value-added primary operations. Instead, they can rely on Timken to perform the initial operations, and receive components at any value-added level.
