A disassembly evaluation at CMT indicated the rolling element bearing failed because of service conditions. The DC roll motor and gearbox needed new shafts, bearings and gears because of improper alignment. Alignment is important in double shaft extensions. If one or both sides aren’t aligned, bearings are destroyed and shafts can twist.
In addition to gearbox repairs, CMT can also come on-site for vibration analysis, dynamic balance, laser alignment, PdMA and FARO inspections.
