We have just delivered a repaired gearbox to a customer whose factory was closed for maintenance work.
The job was originally just a seal and bearing change, new gears – which we had produced earlier – and a general clean up.
Ordinarily, this would have been a straightforward two-day job for our experienced engineers.
However, when they stripped down the gearbox, they realised that it had been running without oil, causing serious damage to the two main drive shafts.
By working over last weekend, our team turned two new shafts, cut the required keyways in, ground them to size and produced new keys.
The customer was delighted with the service and, most importantly, will have the plant running again without any loss of production.
