Iranian company makes 70-ton gear
- Iranian Foulad Mobarakeh Company made its first double helical gear after two years of endeavor, without any foreign help.
Built under a consortium contract in Isfahan, the gear weighs 70 tons with a diameter of 5,000 mm and 1,600 mm height and is the biggest double helical gear used in hot rolled steel plants in Iran.
