Expert Advice: Gears & Drive Components
Drives & Accessories will advise on the purchase of gears and drive components with a view to the most appropriate equipment for the machinery and task.
We keep an eye focused on whether an upgrade, refurbishment or replacement of your parts or gearbox or transmission equipment is the best way of moving forward to produce superior outcomes in gearbox effectiveness and efficiency.
During any gearbox repair we will seek to pinpoint the underlying reason for the gearbox failure and if necessary we will undertake:
- oil analysis,
- vibration measurements and
- thorough visual inspection, and
- check for abrasive wear patterns and gear tooth pitting.
Determining root causes may help to avoid repeated need for repair and will ensure minimum machine downtime in the future.
