Gearboxes have many moving parts like gears, bearings, shafts, clutches and couplings. Each gearbox component is inspected individually for functional integrity. Gearing can be helical, bevel and/or worm, which are used independently or as a combination as a speed reducer or speed increaser in a gearbox. If your gearbox is making noise, vibrating, leaking or […]
Is your gearbox noisy, vibrating, leaking? There are many moving parts on a gearbox like gears, bearings, shafts, clutches and couplings. CMT can repair all gearboxes. Our capabilities include machine work, shafts, housing, bearing bores, NDT, babbitt bearings, assembly and testing.
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 […]
Many gearbox designs are splash lubricated and, because of this, some internal components that help rotational shaft speeds do not receive enough amounts of lubrication. Design, fabrication and installation of oil reservoirs containing lubricant ensures bearings will be properly lubricated while the gearbox is functioning. CMT can do all industrial gearbox repairs including gear installation, […]
CMT was recently asked to rebuild a large multi-shaft gearbox assembly for a regional pipe mill. CMT’s Field Service technicians removed the gearbox from the customer’s site and transported it to the shop for evaluation and rebuild. The gearbox unit was dismantled, cleaned, inspected and then rebuilt using new bearings and other components. Some additional […]
What’s a gearbox? Gearboxes are mechanical devices that use gears and shaft assembles to provide speed from a power source like an electric motor to another machine. Gearboxes are used for many different purposes. Gearboxes transmit torque and RPM to specific mechanical equipment. Gearboxes drive steel-making conveyors, roll assemblies in paper mills and coal feeders […]
Industrial gearboxes run the world. Industrial gearboxes are often used to control the equipment that manufacturers steel and pipe mills. Gearboxes may increase speed, decrease speed or manufacture torque required to drive a larger piece of equipment. Some industrial gearboxes can be serviced in a gearbox repair shop, such as CMT, or multi-shaft gearboxes can […]
