Gearbox Machine Diagnostics Inspection of gearboxes Onsite gear measurement Engineering of gearboxes
Machine Diagnostics
Our team of inspection engineers is one of the most experienced and well educated in Western Europe.

We have done many inspections and Failure root cause analyses in many industrial, maritime and wind industries.

Further our department has knowledge on
- Condition based maintenance
- Equipment health management
- Torque and power measurements
Onsite gearbox inspection, repair, alignment and commissioning
Our service engineers have besides their tremendous commitment and flexibility, also a great knowledge of gearboxes in their specific environment. Often the environment is the basis for earlier failure. In addition to onsite inspections and assembly, we can execute the following:
-Field trim balancing
-Geometrical measurements
-Thermal growth studies
-Torque and power measurements
Onsite gear measurement
We have an portable 6 axes gear measurement tool. With this measurement tool we can check and measure the profiles on-site of unknown gears.

For our customers, this has the advantage that we can measure components in the gearbox. Vulnerable parts need no longer to be transported with all the risks. Gearboxes should be opened just for an short lead-time. Existing heavy gears that should be replaced, doesn't need to be transported with high costs.
Engineering
Our engineering department focuses on all issues of gearboxes.

A broad practical experience combined with modern equipment makes us distinctive.

Our department consists of employees with an average of 15 years experience in gearboxes of many brands for many applications, such as wind, the dredging industry, shipping, energy production and container and bulk handling.
Machining Inspection and repair of gearboxes in our workshop Test run of gearboxes Machining
Machining of gears, gearbox housings and other related parts
Our company has an machining department with about 35 employees. From 2009, we have made significant investments in new machinery, including a Niles for grinding the gears. Furthermore, we have started the production of gears on 5-axis milling machines. Our production portfolio in terms of gearboxes looks therefore as follows:
-housings
-white-metal bearings
-gears
-shafts
Inspection and repair of gearboxes in our workshop
From 2009 we have trained a group of 20 engineers, which work as well on site as our workshop. Our main tasks are:
-complete inspection,
-troubleshooting
-reporting and
assembly.

In 2015 we will expand our company with a specially equipped assembly hall.
Test run of gearboxes all our gearboxes
All our gearboxes are subjected to a test to our test stand.
Maintenance Management of gearboxes
At this moment we have custom software for capturing our inspections and repairs. For our larger clients we are currently developing a management system for all their gearboxes, allowing current status, required actions and history are transparant.
