Types of Gearboxes
Maintenance Partners provides services on various types of gearboxes, for example:
- Planetary type
- Bull gear type
Our services range from standard inspections and repairs to complete overhauls. A repair or overhaul of a gearbox generally consists of an Inspection, Repair/Modification and a final Report.
The first step when repairing any gearbox is the inspection. Gearbox inspections include:
- Visual inspection
- Measuring axial clearances
- Measuring gear tooth clearances
- Disassembly + visual inspection of parts
- Dimensional measurements
- Oil sampling & check
When the inspection is finished, an inspection report is drawn up with recommendations for repair.
Execution of works
After approval of the recommendations for repair, the execution of the repair / overhaul works begins. The scope of work may vary, but can include:
- Cleaning & steaming
- Preparation of technical drawings for machining by in-house engineering team
- Machining of parts (bearing housings, rotors, …)
- Balancing of rotating parts
- Coating of exterior
- Final testing
The final report is written after testing and includes measurements from before and after the repair. If possible, recommendations for operating, inspecting and maintenance are also included, resulting in more reliable operations and less unforeseen breakdowns.
