Since 1973, Titan Machine has been a leader in furnishing new elevator and hoistway equipment providing a unique blend of manufacturing, custom elevator machine design, and repair services to the elevator industry. We’ve worked with every elevator mechanical design you can imagine and can be relied on to fix any issue you may have.
Titan provides the best elevator production equipment, replacement parts, and repair solutions for geared elevator machines with the fastest lead times while keeping your project under budget with minimal down time. Within our 70,000 sf facility, Titan is capable of partnering with you on your next project—beginning with our in-house engineering department and carrying through with batch production capabilities. We have manually operated pieces of construction equipment ideally suited for one-time repairs or custom projects. Titan also operates a series of CNC machines used in our new parts and machine production lines. These same pieces of machinery are frequently employed for batch production orders of custom parts. Under one roof, Titan has assembled the best equipment, personnel, and industry knowledge to produce both an efficient line of geared traction machines and hoistway equipment, as well as servicing seemingly obsolete parts with replacements or repair solutions. If it’s a mechanical component or assembly in the elevator system, chances are we have repaired or reproduced it in our 40+ years servicing the elevator industry.
WORM & GEARS –
At Titan, we have the tooling and expertise to accurately reproduce any worm and gear set for elevator and escalator geared traction equipment. Our typical lead times for new replacement worm and gears is 7-10 business days and because of our high volume we frequently have the more popular OEM sets in stock. In the event that a finished set or casting isn’t in our inventory, we have amassed hundreds of patterns for nearly every OEM design including rare or presumably obsolete machines. Having this pattern library allows us to work with our local bronze foundry to expedite your orders. Our processes include CNC thread and cylindrical grinding which ensures your gear set will have a longer service life than most original manufacturers design and it’s a standard that far exceeds our competitors offerings. With our worm and gear replacement sets you can trust that your geared equipment will be up and running faster and at a lower cost than expensive machine replacements.
In our facility we are capable of making ANY sheave or drum you need. We have the largest inventory of sheave patterns and castings in the country.
We have the ability of making from 15” – 74” diameter sheaves from 1” – 48” wide.
Sheave Assemblies – Replacement
Geared Machine Drive Sheaves
Gearless Drive Sheaves
Many machines working today weren’t manufactured with easy sheave maintenance such as groove reconditioning (re-grooving) or sheave replacement as an engineering design goal. As a result, the sheave was cast as an integrated section of the spider. This process and design requires an elevator contractor to replace the entire spider assembly rather than just addressing the worn sheave. Over three decades ago, here at Titan Machine, we developed a low tech method of addressing this issue for our customers. The existing spider’s sheave section is machined off and the surface is prepared for mounting a new sheave “rim”. That rim is machined to match the exact diameter and roping configuration of the original sample. Once mounted and fastened to the existing spider, the new sheave acts as a modern de-mountable sheave and affords the contractor the easy maintenance and serviceability common to most modern equipment and necessary to keep maintenance costs down.
GEARED TRACTION MACHINES –
Titan offers three versions of customizable and modern geared traction machines to meet nearly any duty range requirement:
– The Titan I overhead is a heavy duty yet compact machine built for passenger elevators.
– The Titan I basement is a heavy duty yet compact machine built for passenger elevators. We offer basement machines with or without an overhead deflector.
– The Titan II overhead is a heavy duty traction machine built for passenger, freight and hospital duty applications for low rise and mid-rise applications.
– The Titan II basement is a heavy duty traction machine built for passenger, freight and hospital duty applications for low rise and mid-rise applications. We offer basement machines with or without an overhead deflector.
– The Titan III machine is the most robust traction machine we offer. This machine is built for high capacity passenger, garages, hospitals, and freight duty applications. This machine is offered in an overhead or basement configuration.
Each machine is load tested in our facility to ensure a smooth operation and durability.
Our fabrication department alone is approximately 8,800 square feet. We specialize in mig welding, arc welding, and brazing. We can weld steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and brass. We can anneal and harden steel for safety parts or anything else you need hardened. We have iron worker machines, band saws, acetylene torches, sheers, steel benders, CNC drilling machine and a break. We can make any part, bracket, or housing and in conjunction with our engineering department you can make anything you can imagine.
Titan fabricates custom engineered heavy-duty hoistway materials for nearly any elevator application.

On any given day here at Titan we receive a myriad of different elevator and escalator assemblies for rebuilding and / or reproduction. In nearly every case, all of the bearings in the assembly need or warrant replacement. On larger assemblies the bearings may require a press fit that exceeds most field equipment’s rated capacities. At Titan, we have stationary hydraulic presses that can exert up to 200 tons of pressure to remove or install new bearings.
In order to maintain our commitment to ensure the fastest possible turnaround times, we stock thousands of bearings. Everything from ball bearings, to spherical rollers, to needle bearings…we stock it all.
COMPLETE MACHINE OVERHAUL –
Often times our customers are presented with geared traction or gearless equipment whose service life has expired. They are faced with the potential for costly modernizations to the entire elevator or escalator system and lengthy downtime. Titan can mitigate these costs and get your equipment back in service faster by overhauling the entire machine. We can repair or replace any component or assembly, retest your machine under load, and return your machine in nearly “bolt on” condition under warranty.
At Titan, we take great pride in the wide scope of services we can provide our clientele. New gears, sheaves, shafts, bearing work, precision machine setup and testing, …the list goes on. We can apply all of our expertise to the complete reconditioning and overhaul of your existing equipment or manufacturing you new equipment from scratch.
