Ameridrives Universal Joint Rebuild and Repair Service Brochure Just Released
NORTH AMERICAN MILL OPERATORS CAN SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE DOWNTIME AND COSTS WITH SERIES 7000 BLOCK-TYPE U-JOINT REBUILD AND RETROFIT SERVICES BY AMERIDRIVES, AVAILABLE IN THE U.S.
Now, mills in North America can save time and money since they no longer need to wait for months while they ship their block-type U-joints to an overseas manufacturer for rebuild and repair services.
The major competitor U-Joint design utilizes bolts to connect the bearing blocks to the shaft. Unfortunately, after only a few years of service, the bolts start to come loose under high mill torque loads causing the U-joints to fail.
North American mill operators, with an eye on increasing output while reducing costs, can now send their damaged competitor block-type U-joints directly to our Ameridrives facility in Erie, Pennsylvania.Our complete block-type (Series 7000) U-Joint repair and rebuild service options include:
- Service sizes 315 mm to 600 mm
- Manufacturing and installing completely new blocks on existing customer shafts with no modifications to the existing shaft.
- Manufacturing entirely new dimensional drop-in replacement U-Joints, utilizing Ameridrives mill-proven cross and bearing design vs. competitor’s bolt system.
