Something interesting from my work

So recently I worked on the development for a new column mounted drive. It is huge. Our biggest yet. It outputs 8.4 million pounds of torque. I don’t really have any great pictures of it. However, I did find pictures of the cage it connects to. I did nothing with the cage. I just found it very cool due to its shear size. For reference, the 8 main posts are all 8″ pipe. And this one welded structure weighs 65,000 lbs and is just over 50 feet long. Enjoy…
