What could go wrong with your gearbox?

Industrial gearboxes, such as Spaggiari and Sirem gearboxes, are central to the operations of various industrial fields in the chemical, energy, construction, and environmental industries. They are a vital piece of equipment, which provide the mechanical power needed to propel industrial equipment such as pumps and mixers. So you can say that the work we do here at YB Components helps keep the wheels of industry turning. Like all other types of equipment, industrial gearboxes have a breaking point, and this can have serious implications for your business. So what are some of the things that could go wrong with your industrial gearbox? Overheating:  can reduce the lifespan of the likes of Spaggiari worm gearboxes and Sumitomo gearboxes, or any […]

Tips to extend the life of industrial equipment

It goes without saying that heavy machinery, particularly industrial, mining and farming equipment, requires constant maintenance in order to keep the machinery in top condition and working at its optimum. With all those internal components such as Sirem gearboxes, Spaggiari gear-motors, Sitex st couplings and Trasco flexible couplings simultaneously working inside a machine, if a component does wear down and become damaged, the machinery will inevitably run inefficiently. As machinery breakdowns are costly and safety needs to be a priority, it pays to keep industrial equipment and its internal components in good working order. Take a look at the following five tips to help extend the life of industrial parts. Check for signs of wear As we wrote in a […]

Advice on inspecting an industrial gearbox

Inspecting a Sirem gearbox, Spaggiari gearboxes, Sumitomo gearboxes, or any other type of industrial gearbox for that matter, can help identity any problems or issues before equipment failure arises. Regular inspections of gearboxes can therefore help eliminate emergency repair costs. There are several sources that cause an industrial gearbox to become contaminated. Gearboxes are typically operated in dirty environments and are therefore prone to becoming contaminated with dirt, grime and grease. In order to ensure your equipment is in tip top condition it is therefore imperative it is regularly inspected. Detecting overheating One of the most obvious signs that a Sumitomo gearbox, a worm gearbox or any other type of industrial gearbox is faulty and not operating as it should, […]

Understanding torque in relation to industrial gearboxes and geared motors

What are the differences between Heynau gearboxes, Kumera gearboxes, Liming gearboxes, Parallel shift gearboxes, and Sirem gearboxes? If you are not a gearbox manufacturer, a gearbox distributor or a gearbox supplier or do not offer gearbox repair services, you might not know the difference between the leading gearboxes and geared motors manufacturers. What industrial gearboxes do have in common is they use mechanical advantages to increase output torque. The shaft of the motor is fed into the gearbox a through a number of internal gearing, provides the torque and speed conversion. So what exactly is torque? Torque is essentially a unit of measurement used to represent the turning effort around an axis. When used as a noun, torque is the […]
