Falk Introduces New RW Series Energy-Efficient Marine Drive
—Color Brochure A v a i l a b l e— For some 70 years, The Falk Corporation of Milwaukee has been building a reputation for producing durable, reliable, and energy-efficient marine drives. Every day, thousands of such drives provide dependable service in tugs, towboats, offshore service vessels, and naval ships.
The recently launched RW Series continues in that seagoing tradition, expanding Falk's marine drive capability and matching more needs. It combines state-of-the-art technology with modern manufacturing methods to provide more shaft power at lower cost.
This new reversing drive with multi-disc hydraulic clutches features surface-hardened and finished gearing, all-steel fabricated housings, a special hydraulic pressure control, valves for smooth clutch engagement, and more. It is available in sizes up to 7,000 bhp, with standard ratios in the range of 1.5:1 to 7:1.
The RW Series marine drive provides long-proven Falk advantages: high-efficiency gears, long bearing life, and simplified maintenance. Important, too, is the full support of Falk's experienced engineering staff to help match the right drive to the specific marine application. Customers can also be confident of service when they need it, utilizing facilities and personnel on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Falk offers an elaborate, 16-page color brochure describing in detail the company's facilities and products. Liberally illustrated with color photographs and line drawings, the brochure presents Falk's diverse capabilities, including wide choice of products, stringent quality control, highly skilled and motivated people, and unique ability to assume singlesource responsibility.
Falk takes pride in its total process control capabilities, from its inhouse steel foundry (dramatically illustrated in the brochure) to the special deepwell rail cars used for shipping large gears ar 1 drives. The company's machining, cutting, and grinding operations are served by an array of modern machine tools capable of producing precision components weighing from several ounces to more than 70 tons.
