The condition of bearings has a significant influence on production processes and they can be reconditioned to extend their service life significantly. ABS can recondition all types of bearings regardless of the manufacturer.
Our industrial mechanical products (Bearings, Engineering Chains, Gearboxes…), are highly engineered products that have been previously tested through simulations and have passed numerous quality tests before being put into operation for the first time, with the intention of prolonging their service life as much as possible. However, there is no mechanical component that lasts forever.
They are usually subjected to very demanding working conditions and despite complying with adequate maintenance, they are exposed to a series of factors that cause their wear and as a consequence their malfunction: high temperatures, strong vibrations, excessive contamination, insufficient lubrication…
In most cases, and if possible, the option to repair and recondition a bearing or any related mechanical component leads to significant savings in time and cost compared to a newly manufactured bearing. In addition, it is also the most sustainable option -in a reconditioned mechanical component we can reuse approximately 70% of the materials compared to the manufacture of a new component-. However, to proceed with its reconditioning with guarantees, it is necessary to have a team of highly qualified technicians and engineers and the equipment and facilities necessary to proceed with its inspection, analysis of improvements, and finally the repairs that are necessary for that can be reused.
