Pulp and Paper

Our gear reducers are as diversified as the industry itself supporting nearly every application in the pulp milling and paper manufacturing process.


Paper Manufacturing

Pulp mills convert wood chips or other plant fibers into thick fiber boards that undergo further processing at paper mills. Pulp mills typically use large amounts of energy, so equipment efficiency is important. 

Sumitomo Drive Technologies has reliable, high efficiency gear drives for nearly every application in the pulping process: debarking, chipping, and digesting; “wet end” processes of washing, bleaching, blending and cleaning; “dry end” processes of the press section and dryers; finishing, and cutting. 

We match our gear reducers to your application and offer proven reliability under the most severe conditions.

"We’ve got just a single line going through the plant. If that line is down, then we’re really hurting…We’re running 15,000 bd ft an hour and it’s a big expense for us when we have to repair a breakdown due to a gear failure. We have to have something that is reliable. We’re considering switching all of our gear boxes to Sumitomo Cyclo® units."

"The delivery was quick and the product we presented to us had all the features we were looking for in a gearbox. In addition we had problems with other speed reducer manufacturers—and we wanted to give Sumitomo a try."
