We were recently able to help T-Services (NE) who needed a bespoke solution to help repair a gear box on an industrial recycling bottle crusher.
T-Services (NE) were replacing a UCF208 bearing on the crusher’s gear box. The bearing had collapsed on a shaft that is part of the integral gear box, and because of
where the box was positioned and the machine’s working environment, it would have been an extremely costly and tricky to have had to strip down all the parts to carry out the repair.
T-Services (NE) contacted our Cylinder Parts Manager Tim Bone, to enquire if there was such a thing as a split bearing, that could be fitting around the exit shaft of the gear box, without having to break everything down.
