Gearbox Maintenance

About the maintenance of gearboxes, you should be aware, as performing it correctly guarantees good functionality and increases the equipment's lifespan.

A gearbox is a robust piece of equipment, it contains sensitive components that need regular care. However, just having the gearbox available does not necessarily guarantee correct operation. It is necessary that the maintenance of gearboxes is updated, ensuring their performance and their full operating capacity.

What is the importance of Gearboxes Maintenance?

If a component of a system, which constitutes a mechanism, is performing its work incorrectly, there will be an overload on the other devices that are in interaction with it. Therefore, overloading will reduce the useful life of the other parts of the set.

With the maintenance of gearboxes, the problem can be solved with the replacement of the defective component, to guarantee the preservation of the other devices. In any industrial mechanism, improvisation can generate losses and even the complete stoppage of an industry's production.

We can conclude that the main purpose of gearbox maintenance is to reduce costs and increase productivity.

The Preventive Maintenance for gearboxes obeys a previously designed standard, which establishes periodic stops with the objective of allowing the exchange of worn out parts for new ones, providing the perfect operation of the equipment for a previously determined period.

The preventive method provides a certain pace of work, providing operational stability for the smooth running of the processes.

Predictive Maintenance for gearboxes

The Predictive Maintenance for gearboxes is the one that indicates the real operating conditions of the equipment based on data that inform its wear or degradation process.

It’s this maintenance that predicts the lifespan of equipment components and the conditions for it to be put to good use.
