Our extensively tooled workshop and spare parts stock holding means technical staff carry out repairs in a timely and professional manner. We stock loan replacement drives and gearboxes to keep our customers operational whilst repairs are being carried out.

For customers who require on-site service we have a quick and reliable mobile service team. They provide full project management including design, supply, installation and maintenance on all power transmissions.

We offer servicing and repairs for a range of equipment including all leading brands of Gearboxes, Motors, VSD Drives, Actuators, Fluid Couplings, Conveyor Rollers and General Fabrication and Maintenance. When you purchase equipment and products from Chain & Drives you can rest easy in the knowledge that you have entered a partnership offering a one-stop-shop solution.

Chain & Drives offer in-house service and repair for all industrial gearboxes, fluid couplings, linear actuators and variable speed drives. Our service capability includes design-supply-installation-maintenance.

Our field service team can assist with installation and maintenance of all types of gearboxes, motors, couplings, bearings, actuators and power transmission equipment.

At our workshop Chain & Drives repair all types of industrial gearboxes, motors, fluid couplings and linear actuators.

  • We can offer a rebuild service for all head drum and idler assemblies.
  • Full strip and inspection reports, including all analysis, hardness testing and no load run testing.
  • We can tailor our reports to meet your requirements and offer advice for preventative maintenance and drive installation.
  • We use genuine parts on all gearboxes serviced and can organise locally manufactured parts for other urgent breakdown situations.

Our goal is to offer the highest level of customer service, supported by premium power transmission products.

 

Balancing & Alignment

Balancing

Unbalanced fans, pumps and rotors place undue stresses and additional loads on bearings, motors and couplings substantially reducing component service life, and potentially causing catastrophic failure which can damage surrounding equipment and harm employees.

Often after major mechanical work on this type of equipment, re-balancing and alignment are required to ensure optimum operating efficiency.

Engineering consulting services for upgrades and new equipment designs.

Consulting & Design

 

Utilising using up to date information and the latest technology, we provide optimised solutions for your designs of plant improvements. Our engineers can design entire machines or components there of individuals; electric motor specification motor bases, soft starters and variable speed drives; couplings, v-belt drives, gearboxes, bearing arrangements. We offer “Complete Power Transmission”.

Energy consumption Audit Service

Energy Audit Service

 

Energy consumption can be reduced by up to 40% through analysing inefficient and poorly designed drives and adopting better drive design practices.

The path to becoming an environmentally sustainable manufacturer begins with understanding how much energy you currently use and how you can reduce that consumption.

Laser Alignment

Laser Alignment

 

Misalignment in mechanical systems such as motor gearbox pump assemblies is a major factor in increased wear and premature failures.

Using traditional alignment techniques incorporating straight edges and dial indicators are extremely time consuming, subject to methodology errors and physical limitations. Laser alignment techniques are both fast and accurate while reducing the potential for human error. Aligned equipment runs more smoothly and avoids premature failure of bearings, belts and couplings.

Equipement Refurbishment

Mechanical Equipment Refurbishment

 

Our service facility will provide repairs and services of all types of gearboxes, motors, couplings, bearings, actuators and drive assemblies. Our service staff are factory trained with many years’ experience in all types of power transmission equipment. We also can refurbish head and tail drum assemblies. Our service centre carries a large inventory of spare parts for immediate repairs and even in breakdown situations. We will prepare a tailored full-service report and provide a maintenance programme specific to your equipment.

 

Oil Analysis Testing (In-house or external testing)

Oil Analysis

 

Oil analysis is a cost effective method for determining the condition of existing lubricants helping to protect service life.

Programs can consist of either in-house or external testing which tests for four major indicators,:base oil degradation, water content, presence of contaminants and presence of iron particles. As an example, in food plants it is common to find water contamination in gearboxes as a result of daily high pressure wash downs. Even very small concentrations of water will lead to premature bearing and gear failure due to corrosion.

 

Preventative Maintenance

 

Maintanance for all industrial gearboxes, fluid couplings, linear actuators and variable speed drives. Our service capability includes design-supply-installation-maintenance.

Our field service team can assist with installation and maintenance of all types of gearboxes, motors, couplings, bearings, actuators and power transmission equipment.

Plant Maintanance

Plant Maintenance

 

Our field services team have many years’ experience in plant maintenance. We can assist with break down installation of your power transmission requirements through to shut down maintenance programs. We will provide full plant audits and tailored maintenance programs across specialist industry sectors. Our maintenance team is backed by in-house engineers and specialists in consultation with our factory personnel. Our team provide complete maintenance solutions for your plant and equipment.

Product Training Programs

Training

 

Through continuous commitment to quality Chain & Drives strives to provide training solutions for industry. Utilising technical expertise we have developed comprehensive product training programs.

From the engineer seeking assistance with selecting the appropriate materials or components, a distributor who wants to provide the best available advice and products to your customers, or a maintenance person interested in getting the maximum uptime, we have a solution for your plant and equipment.

Vibration Analysis

 

Vibration Analysis

 

This is the predominant technology employed in condition monitoring to determine the condition of various mechanical components making estimating a prediction on service life expectancy and urgency of repairs. It is a non-invasive technique which collects vibration data from machines under normal operating conditions. Vibration readings are typically taken at bearing locations following accepted industry.
