ERIKS APPOINTED AS CERTIFIED SKF GEARBOX REBUILDER
ERIKS, THE SPECIALISED INDUSTRIAL service provider, has been appointed by SKF as a Certified Gearbox Rebuilder.

Gearboxes are used throughout industry, with the majority of gearbox failures being caused by worn, damaged or incorrectly specified bearings and seals. The SKF Certified Gearbox Rebuilder programme has been introduced to help accredited specialists analyse and identify the root cause of faults, and then to carry out the correct level of repairs using approved procedures and parts.

Peter Townsend at ERIKS explained :“We’ve been rebuilding and refurbishing gearboxes since 1982 and have always used the most advanced and highest quality components. The new SKF certification now provides independent recognition that our engineering processes, dismantling, mounting, assembly and inspection systems, plus the skills and knowledge of our production teams comply with the highest standards”

ERIKS’ gearbox engineering teams have received extensive training from experts at SKF. They will also routinely be reassessed and given ongoing access to SKF’s bearing applications and knowledge database. This will enable ERIKS’ engineers to ensure that new techniques for bearing failure analysis, together with the latest developments in technology can be deployed as quickly as possible to minimise gearbox downtime.
