For several years, we have been repairing and overhauling our customers gearboxes and have always taken it for granted. A couple of years ago we decided to start talking to people about it and are now regularly repairing industrial gearboxes from STM Team and other manufacturers in our sector.
On the face of it, repairing a gearbox is simple (when you’ve got over 30 years’ experience, it should be) but when done really well, there’s far more to it. Firstly, understanding the different gearbox types and their nuances isn’t something you can learn easily, and we’ve had years of learning… often by trial and error. We try to offer a little more than a simple repair, for us it is important to try to understand the cause of the failure… excess load on the shaft, inadequate lubrication, bearing failure etc. If we can get to the bottom of that, we are then able to work with our customers to eliminate the cause of the failure and increase the life of the repaired unit.
We’re not the biggest repair shop… we’d rather be honest at this point. We can handle gearboxes up to 2 tonnes in weight. We can source original OEM parts where they are still available, and work with some fantastic engineering companies and can reverse engineer the obsolete parts to the manufacturer’s specification.
We’d really love the chance to work with you, so give us a try next time and see how we compare!
