In these environments time is mission critical, and a damaged or worn shaft can bring work or the production process to a halt.
There are many reasons a shaft or bearing can fail, such as:
- Poor Fitting
- Poor Lubrication
House of Balance conducts Predictive Maintenance Programs for many of our clients. When that is the case, oftentimes our diagnostic approach such as vibration analysis, thermography, precision balancing, and laser alignments, will prevent system failures before they happen.
Sometimes we can repair a shaft without having to replace it, saving our client time and money. The rebuilding process presents special challenges, such as maintaining the proper alignment of the shaft or restoring it to its proper dimensions. This is where our specialized focus on balancing and alignment come in to play.
If we come across a repeatedly problematic shaft, rather than continuously replacing the damaged part we will locate the root of the problem. We have the tools and the acumen to diagnose the entirety of the machine to figure out weaknesses in the design or materials — right at your location in the machine’s working environment, to get you back up and running as soon as possible.
