McKay Dynamics was a large scale, industrial gearbox manufacturer that is no longer with us – although their legacy lives on. Renowned for having first-class quality of manufacture and boasting rugged design features, the McKay units could be found in every application from mixing paint to shearing metal – with everything in between.
McKay Current Availability
The good news is McKay Dynamics gearboxes are still with us, for the most part, in the Barlow range of geared motors. All Torque Transmissions has full access to the entire Barlow range of geared motors, which in many cases are size-for-size replacements for the original gearboxes.
Barlow units are now manufactured in New Zealand and assembled to order in Australia, so turnaround times are relatively quick.
The entire business was a division of the industrial behemoth Ralph McKay Limited, founded by engineer and industrialist Ralph McKay. Some of the other parts added to the McKay Dynamics business included Makishinko (worm reducers) and Wesson (motor brakes). All Torque Transmissions knows all of the sizes and range of both Makishinko and Wesson and is able to assist in identification and supply.
The McKay Dynamics brand may no longer be with us, but at All Torque we will ensure that equipment utilising a McKay unit remains operational.
