Premature damage to gearboxes and their parts, such as bearings and gears, can have multiple different causes.
Damages can be caused from material and geometric deficiencies. However, damage can be also be due to mistakes during mounting, inappropriate lubrication conditions or overloading during the application, among others.
Elgeti Engineering investigates all cases as an independent third party. They apply a wide array of advanced engineering methods to pinpoint the source of problems and recommend appropriate countermeasures.
Their on-site capabilities include endoscopy and measurement of vibrations and loads during service, which are especially useful for early detection or to pinpoint problems in a larger system. Their well-appointed materials laboratory and numerical simulation capabilities are also at their customers disposal.
