Spare Pinions Can Save a Lot of Downtime
Pinion maintenance can be one area of the mill’s drive train that is often neglected by the maintenance department. It’s not intentional of course, it’s just often overlooked. This causes unexpected — and unnecessary — mill down time because of failure, excessive wear or a combination of both factors. In many cases critical spare parts such as pinions are not held in store which means that mills face the possibility of having to wait until the necessary replacement units are available.
That is why we offer spare pinions specifically designed to match your custom ring gear drive. Having a spare can prevent that downtime in the case of failure. It's all part of our dedication to keep your entire mill efficient, not just the gear drives.
