2 Initial Inspection

Onsite or in our facilities, our expert team of specialists will inspect your unit to determine the root cause of the failure. After our teams inspection is over, we’ll provide a detailed report with images.

3 Disassembly and cleaning

Our team takes apart and cleans the unit, and schedules manufacturing for replacement parts. For uprating, we’ll make necessary changes and incorporate them into the manufacturing process.

4 Assembly and testing

Once the components are complete, we reassemble and rigorously test the gearbox, measuring endplay, tooth contact and backlash, temperature, sound, vibration levels, and more.

5 Painting, preserving, and shipment

After the gearbox is reassembled and thoroughly tested, we epoxy paint and preserve the unit for storage. Once dried and preserved, we will send your gearbox along to you with documentation to keep it running smoothly for years to come.

6 Rest easy

All overhauls performed at our service and manufacturing centers are backed by a best-in-industry three-year warranty. Should any issues arise with your equipment, reach out to our expert gearbox repair team to get back up and running quickly.

Testing the gearbox after repairs is crucial to ensure that the components have been properly restored and are functioning optimally. It helps identify any lingering issues, guarantees the gearbox’s reliability, and ensures its safe and efficient operation in real-world conditions.
