Emergency repair as a result of bearing damage
The Eisenbeiss Industrial Gear Service team in Sacramento / USA responded quickly and flexibly to a call out at Nor-Cal Beverages where bearing damage on a cam gear caused a beverage filling system to shut-down.
Due to the urgency of this case, an Eisenbeiss service truck was immediately dispatched to the customer to pick up the gear unit.
The gear unit was immediately dismantled, cleaned and inspected. All bearings and guides (cam rollers) as well as shaft seals were acquired locally and replaced.
Including final installation, test run and painting, the total turnaround time was 3 days when the renovated gear unit was delivered to the customer. Thanks to this rapid response, downtime at the customer’s plant was kept to a minimum.
