“This repair service includes a customised assessment, analysis, re-manufacturing and preventive maintenance programme for bearings and auxiliary components used on the mines,” says bearings division director Mahomed Kardar.
“The value of remanufacturing is enormous in that it ensures substantial savings in downtime and reduced replacement costs. “Efficient refurbishing options, using the most sophisticated pro-cesses and equipment, are offered for most brands, types and sizes of bearings,” he adds.
Included in the company’s bearings service is the preparation of a corrective action plan to prevent recurring damage and to ensure efficient bearing performance and extended service life. If a preventive maintenance programme is followed, most bearings can be refurbished, thereby extending service life.
