The New Customized Gearbox: Frankenbox

Frankenbox: DieQua's Modified Standard

With many custom gearboxes, prices can be two to three times the cost of traditional gearboxes.  Working with our leading gearing partners, we're able to help you develop modified standards without crazy costs or lead times!  These solutions are popular with our clients in the DOD, medical, & aerospace sectors due to the capability of outfitting the gearbox with high RPM input capabilities, shock and impact loading / protection, and extreme temperature ranges. 

If you are unable to find the gearbox you need in a catalog, look no further than DieQua’s Frankenbox.  The Frankenbox is a solution from DieQua that can be customized to your specific application. 

By taking a standard gearbox and making modifications, DieQua is able to provide custom tailored solutions without the custom price tag or long lead time.
