In order to rebuild or replace bearing elements which in many cases means large savings for our customers, our company offers the option to recover and repair large bearings for industries such as cement plants, sugar cane industry, mining, pulp & paper mills, steel mills, material handing and industrial production equipment. The new reconstructed bearings are returned to the customer in a shorter period of time as if it had to be manufactured new and with a much lower cost. The final product passes through the same Quality control system in order to ensure the quality goal requested.
In many cases, a controlled and professional modification of standard bearings is one of the easiest way to achieve our customer's needs cost-efficiently. Changing clearances is perhaps the most common modification, but we also regularly incorporate custom material elements, bearing components modifications for aggressive work conditions as well as improving bearing maintenance in order to minimize equipment downtime.
