Scope of work:

We performed an inspection and repair on a gearbox LIGHTNIN 88S 75.


GBS International got this Lightnin 88S 75 gearbox in our shop in The Netherlands. After inspecting the gearbox, we did a complete overhaul and testing. After our quality control department was done, we send the gear unit back to our client.

All parts were put back in their old position during assembly. A new layer has been clad at the oil seals on the incoming and outgoing shaft. After consultation with the customer, the decision was made that the conical pinion shaft will not be renewed. All teeth have been manually checked and cleaned up. The drillings that were oversized or damaged were machined to the correct dimensions. After everything was reassembled and adjusted again, the gearbox has been running for 4 hours with the supplied electric motor

The electric motor is aligned in the workshop itself.

The replacement of the gearbox took place on Monday, November 21. No details were found during the replacement. The coupling just came out with the length. All bolts are provided with copper grease to prevent rust.

Oil was supplied by the client.
