One of the most effective ways of keeping a business out of the red is to watch every penny as it comes in, and goes out. This observation means carefully maintaining equipment so that repairs are minimized as well as watching the price of repairs. In many cases, reconditioning a gearbox instead of buying a new one is a more economical route to take for most industrial companies. There are also several benefits that come with a reconditioned gearbox including a high quality standard, evaluation of parts, and a limited warranty.
A reconditioned gearbox costs less than buying a brand new one. However, reconditioning does not mean that the gearbox is of lower quality. The parts and specifications are matched to those of the original manufacturer. Every bolt, nut, washer, tooth, screw, and bearing will function the same as it would in a new piece of equipment. Reconditioned gearboxes just cost less, and that is a big bonus for any industrial business.
Another key benefit of reconditioning is that the gearbox is completely disassembled when it comes in for service. All parts that are worn and may potentially fail can be inspected and a determination made whether replacement is necessary. This evaluation gives our clients the opportunity to replace parts that are worn, but haven’t failed yet. The result is that damage can be prevented, and further repairs avoided, simply by replacing parts before they are near the end of their operational usefulness. This part replacement process saves time, money, and the need to put operations on hold as a business waits for repairs to be completed. As a result, operation’s finances will have a positive impact, securing work and decreasing downtime in the future.
Reconditioned equipment also comes with various degrees of warranty offers that cover the parts and equipment that was installed on the gearbox. The owner doesn’t have to worry about the quality of repairs that were conducted.
