Kuypers gearbox services

Our company has several technicians who have repaired different types of gearboxes of the brand Kuypers.

The Kuypers gear boxes are often used in the propulsion of a ship. Because the company Kuypers 20 years ago has ceased to exist, it is difficult to find experts to repair. Kuypers gearboxes are also often older and sometimes more frequently revised. Therefore a practical know how is essential to repair this types of gearboxes.

We often have seen damage in the friction and on the gears, due to an hydraulic failure.
