Our Engineering staff, Technical Sales Personnel, and Field Service Technicians understand the critical demands placed on specific field applications of gear drive systems. Supported by our experienced team of operating partners we are capable of delivering fast, detailed assistance, as well as equipment design upgrades to fulfill our customer's needs. Working closely with:
Artec Machine delivers single-point contact solutions to our customers, including a full range of gear-related engineering services intended to minimize losses to our customers. Our services include:
Complete re-design, specification review, and upgrade services - both new and existing power transmission equipment.
Involvement by ARTEC during the planning, purchase, and installation stages of new gears will help to minimize the risk of gear failure and the resulting financial loss to our client. Artec will design or provide specifications for the manufacture and purchase of new gears, evaluate proposals, review vendor's designs, inspect finished parts, witness accuracy checks, and factory tests, review inspection data, supervise the installation, and attend the start-up. We help our clients get the best equipment for their money.
New gearbox installations, erection, and commissioning
We can install your new, reconditioned gear unit including "drop-in" replacements for existing units
Routine periodic maintenance inspections
We can perform and document a complete visual inspection of your gear unit.
Typically, a gear set in distress will begin to show signs of trouble long before a critical failure occurs. During this time, certain corrective measures can be taken that will significantly prolong gear life. Artec will inspect and document gear conditions as found in service, set up a program to monitor the condition over time, and make detailed, practical recommendations on ways to correct any adverse conditions in order to extend gear life. ARTEC has a long and successful history in the troubleshooting and analysis of gears in operation, with many satisfied clients.
Gear Repair Analysis
ARTEC will minimize financial losses if a gear fails in service. We will inspect and photograph the failed parts, determine why the gear failed and what can be done to prevent future failure, help in getting timely and economical repairs, and provide a clear and concise report to aid in the recovery of losses due to the failure. Often, we can shorten the turnaround of failed gears from months to days by providing the technical expertise needed to manufacture or repair gears locally.
Start-up assistance/set-up verification
Our service engineers can be on-site to assist you during unit start-up, verify that the unit is set up correctly, detect and solve problems that may arise during start-up.
Condition reporting and analysis
Our gear specialists will perform periodic visual inspections of your power transmission gearboxes. The equipment's condition is documented and tracked, noting visible changes in the equipment's condition. New data will be compared to the machine's history even though analysis results may be within acceptable limits, trends indicating accelerated wear or other problems may appear. Analysis may allow prediction of remaining life, impending failure.
Whether on-site or at one of our strategically located worldwide sourcing partners we deliver first-class service, support for repairs, upgrades of existing power transmission equipment.
Vibration Analysis and Diagnostics
Artec's Gearbox Condition Monitoring Predictive Maintenance Program can be applied to track the health of your equipment and aid in scheduling gearbox maintenance, avoiding unscheduled equipment or process shutdowns.
Root cause determination of failure is critical in confidently returning gearbox to service. Our service engineers look at the entire system, from operational loads, equipment design, equipment maintenance, and failed components to determine failure cause and permanent corrective action.
Equipment upgrades are critical to today's production-driven manufacturing environment, supporting changing process requirements including expanding capacity, increasing reliability, reducing maintenance costs.
