Keeping You In The Loop


Why you should make use of a professional to repair your Industrial Gearboxes


The gearbox is one of the most important parts of any machinery. Gearboxes transfer POWER from a primary mover like an internal combustion (e.g. engine or electric motor) to a rotating driven load (e.g. mill, conveyor, fan, agitator, or machine) i.e. the efficient movement of ENERGY from a primary generator to a location where useful WORK is to be done. Keeping the gearbox in pristine condition is thus crucial to the safe and efficient operation of any industrial equipment. Additionally, gears are subjected to high cyclic or alternating stresses and the correct selection of gear materials, properties such as resistance to wear, good fatigue strength, as well as a low coefficient of friction are desirable and essential for the longevity and efficiency of the box. This is why it is imperative for gearbox repairs to be handled by an experienced professional.
