Gearboxes are critical elements in a wide range of industrial applications, from paper manufacturing and cement production to sugar processing and steel forging, to name only a few. To effectively maximize the service life of any gearbox, it is critical to know when to repair or replace the various components within, all of which have their own anticipated life spans. 


The intricate workings of these complex mechanisms can be affected by misuse, overuse, or improper maintenance. Issues can arise gradually and escape detection under normal operating conditions. This can contribute to the degradation of performance and increasing operating costs. Plant Machine Works offers a wide array of gearbox repair and maintenance services to maximize industrial gearboxes’ efficiency and service life.


The millwrights at Plant Machine Works undergo continual training in an environment encouraging mentorship. The team demonstrates this attitude towards improvement during the many processes involved in gearbox maintenance and repair, from advanced diagnostics, including disassembly and visual inspection, assessment of seals, gaskets, and bearings, thorough lubrication, part reconditioning, replacement, installation, and more.

Providing the Plant Machine Works team of experts with access to the most advanced instruments and tools of the trade is an approach to business that has differentiated us from other rotating equipment repair shops in the region. From our investment in a Schenck HM40 Horizontal Balancing Machine, Thermo Scientific Niton XRF Analyzer, Quantum FaroArm, and more, we stand committed to the quality of our repairs.
