Rapid Gear has many capabilities that make it a top choice when it comes to working with lifting equipment and cranes. For example, it has expertise when it comes to replacing leaking seals, as well as input cartridge bearings and seals. In addition, the company’s team has the capability to expertly repair and replace gearboxes, and offers onsite gearing inspection to accommodate its customers.
Meeting industry needs
These capabilities are essential for the lifting equipment and crane industry because of the many challenges the sector faces. For example, heavy lifting creates high stress, which demands high-quality materials that can withstand this stress. Rapid Gear only works with high-quality materials.
In addition, the constant speed changes experienced by lifting equipment and cranes creates uneven wear and additional stresses on gearboxes, while high temperatures break down lubricants and seals, reducing bearing life. The result is that these units have to be maintained, and repaired or replaced over time. Rapid Gear has expertise in this area, too.
Additional industry expertise
The lifting equipment and crane industry isn’t the only sector that Rapid Gear serves. The company also has experience working with the military and pulp and paper industries, as well as the mining sector. Ski lift repair is also a service offered by Rapid Gear.
