Fine Pitch Gearing with PIC Design
PIC Design was founded in 1954, operating as Precision Industrial Components, LLC. PIC Design was the first company to satisfy the need for pre-engineered gear products in the United States and was one of the original mechanical component “catalog” companies. The manufacturing plant is located in the Naugatuck Valley of Connecticut. In 2008, PIC Design was purchased by RBC Bearings. We caught up recently with Mike Hamburg, Business Development Manager, Ron Bell, Senior Mechanical Engineer and Tyhler Howard, Plant Manager at PIC Design to discuss the fine pitch gearing market in 2022.
