All-Around Worry-Free Service: Our Extruder Gearbox Exchange Program

Ensure your gearbox functions like new for the entire life of your extruder

An extruder’s gearbox is a key element in the entire extrusion plant’s seamless operation; extrusion, compounding and recycling at the highest possible profitability and efficiency are possible only when the gearbox runs flawlessly.

For this reason, it is important to maintain an extruder’s gearbox regularly to ensure the entire system’s reliability and performance. And it is precisely for this reason that we offer you a total, worry-free service package in which we service and modernize your gearbox. All work is performed by our trained specialists in our workshops in Stuttgart (Germany) or Wytheville VA (USA).

In order to maintain your gearbox as seamlessly as possible, we provide an attractive gearbox exchange program for extruder sizes ZSK 18 to ZSK 133. A short production interruption is all that is needed for our experts to remove your old extruder gearbox and exchange it for one of our many meticulously refurbished gearboxes on hand. That’s it for you! You can resume production at full capacity! You are all set for seamlessly efficient production for the next few years – with no unexpected interruptions due to gearbox malfunctions. We even provide you extended warranty coverage for the replacement gearbox we install.

Possession of your old extruder gearbox passes to us. Our experts carefully refurbish and modernize it at one of our workshops. We issue a repair report and calculate the repair services rendered for you. As soon as the extruder gearbox has been restored to its full performance and reliability, it moves to our pool of replacement gearboxes until it is needed for its next deployment.

Not only is our gearbox exchange program especially economical and worthwhile for you, it’s very sustainable as well. Compared to building a new gearbox, far fewer of our valuable resources are used for refurbishing.
