GBS Gearbox Services internationalbrand of Schaaf- en Boorwerk Rotterdam B.V.
Our team of inspection engineers is one of the most experienced and well educated in Western Europe.
We have done many inspections and Failure root cause analyses in many industrial, maritime and wind industries.
Further our department has knowledge on
- Condition based maintenance
- Equipment health management
- Torque and power measurements
Onsite gearbox repair, inspection, alignment and commissioning
Our service engineers have besides their tremendous commitment and flexibility, also a great knowledge of gearboxes in their specific environment. Often the environment is the basis for earlier failure. In addition to onsite inspections and assembly, we can execute the following: -Field trim balancing
-Thermal growth studies
-Torque and power measurements
Onsite gear measurement
We have an portable 6 axes gear measurement tool. With this measurement tool we can check and measure the profiles on-site of unknown gears.
For our customers, this has the advantage that we can measure components in the gearbox. Vulnerable parts need no longer to be transported with all the risks. Gearboxes should be opened just for an short lead-time. Existing heavy gears that should be replaced, doesn't need to be transported with high costs.
Our engineering department focuses on all issues of gearboxes.
A broad practical experience combined with modern equipment makes us distinctive.
Our department consists of employees with an average of 15 years experience in gearboxes of many brands for many applications, such as wind, the dredging industry, shipping, energy production and container and bulk handling.
Machining of gears, gearbox housings and other related parts
Our company has an machining department with about 35 employees. From 2009, we have made significant investments in new machinery, including a Niles for grinding the gears. Furthermore, we have started the production of gears on 5-axis milling machines. Our production portfolio in terms of gearboxes looks therefore as follows: -housings -white-metal bearings -gears -shafts
Inspection and repair of gearboxes in our workshop
From 2009 we have trained a group of 20 engineers, which work as well on site as our workshop. Our main tasks are: -complete inspection, -troubleshooting -reporting and assembly.
In 2016 we will expand our company with a specially equipped assembly hall.
Test run of gearboxes all our gearboxes
All our gearboxes are subjected to a test to our test stand.
GBS Gearbox Services develops a triple-500 kW-Oil-Purity test facility, which will be ready mid 2016.
In the cabin, we can roughly handle big size of objects:
long spindles having a length up to 8 meters and an outside diameter of 3-4 meters
other objects which we can be placed on a rotary table with a diameter of 3-4 meters and a height of 3 meters
Zero leakage program
We are willing to determine the common cause of failure and to find an solution to reduce the failure mode of oil-gaskets and -seals.
We will do research to find the root cause of different leakages and provide professional advice to our customers.
Onsite project teams
Automated online condition monitoring for rotating machinery
Maintenance Management of gearboxes
At this moment we have custom software for capturing our inspections and repairs. For our larger clients we are currently developing a management system for all their gearboxes, allowing current status, required actions and history are transparant.
