Case Study: Wheel Refurbishment for Cranes

Barlow Technology offers a specialised refurbishment and repair service for defective or worn-out crane wheels, wheel sets, wheel blocks and shaft assemblies for many different crane types.

Offering a product collection service from the customer, followed by a thorough cleaning and disassembly process, one of our qualified personnel shall conduct an expert evaluation and undertake the work required. When the refurbishment/repair is complete, the client receives an ‘as new’ product with a FULL WARRANTY, delivered back to the point of collection, typically with a timeframe of 6-8 weeks.

Supporting customers across a wide spectrum of applications and repair requirements, Barlow Technology offer competitive rates with typical costs for refurbishment, 30% cheaper than a replacement.

Following a full assessment, typically, we shall repair and refurbish bearing blocks and covers, with wheels, shafts and bearings, more often requiring to be replaced with new parts.

We support many of the United Kingdom’s Ports and Harbours and associated steel industries, refurbishing wheels for specialist applications where non-standard wheels are required.

Our aim is to always understand the application in which our wheels will be used, adapting materials and processes to mechanically suit requirements, prolonging the life of wheels and reducing maintenance costs and down time.
