Gearbox ready service reduces downtime

Gearbox ready service reduces downtime

A gearbox ready service has been launched by Renold Gears to provide manufacturers with a rapid replacement unit in the event of a failure or urgent repair. The new service is designed to provide plant engineers with an identical replacement gearbox the same day, and very often within a matter of just hours, to cut downtime and get production up and running again as quickly as possible.

The new Service Exchange Programme provides a real alternative to a quick, unscheduled, emergency repair that can be expensive and not necessarily the best long-term solution. To provide the new service Renold Gears will design and manufacture an identical replacement gearbox for any unit, regardless of the original manufacturer, free-of-charge, and hold it in stock until it is required.

In the event of a failure the replacement unit is dispatched immediately and can often arrive on site within a matter of hours. The old unit is then replaced with the new one and is returned to Renold’s factory where it is properly refurbished to an as-good-as-new condition. It is then kept in stock until it too is required and the service cycle repeats.

The Service Exchange Programme is particularly well suited to critical applications where gearbox failure could cause disruption to production and result in costly downtime. It is designed for applications with non-standard gearboxes, old units that are no longer in production, gearboxes that are not standard stock items, or any gearbox that could not normally be replaced with a new unit quickly.

Speaking of the new service Roger Godson of Renold Gears, said: “The Service Exchange Programme is part of our customer focused approach to provide a complete service and refurbishment partnership, implement a best practice maintenance regime, and significantly cut downtime whenever a gearbox failure occurs.”
