Plastics make their way into nearly every part of our lives. If the equipment that produces them breaks down, the production company faces possible profit losses, downtime, and reputational damage due to interrupted supply chains. Chalmers & Kubeck is here to keep you moving. We offer a comprehensive range of services and products that help plastics facilities work efficiently and minimize downtime, including repairs, inspections, sales, and more.

Our Services for Plastics Companies

Our wide range of services includes the following, many of which are available as emergency, on-site, or standard services.

Gearbox Overhauls

Gearboxes keep important production machinery, like your extruder, running smoothly. We provide a range of services from borescope inspections to complete reverse-engineering and overhaul of obsolete gearboxes. We perform our gearbox overhauls for plastics companies with the help of in-house dynamic balancing up to 5,000 pounds and no-load spin testing.

Many of our plastics partners take advantage of the fact that we are a Flender-authorized sales and service center and provider of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Flender spare parts. We’re also an authorized repair center for SEW-Eurodrive systems.

Gear Manufacturing

In addition to complete overhauls, we provide precision gear manufacturing for plastics companies according to American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) and DIN standards. We can make precision-ground helical, double helical, and internal or external spur gearing. Materials include thru-hardened, carburized, and induction-hardened options.

Our gear manufacturing capabilities include reverse-engineering services and service factor upgrades to get you a gear that works as intended, if not better. These services are available for emergency and on-site support.

Rotating Equipment Repair

Your facility might include a wide range of rotating equipment, and we can service it with strategies like dynamic balancing and shaft straightening. Our thermal spray services can also provide dimensional restoration and added longevity.

Borescope Inspections

With our collection of borescopes, we conduct detailed borescope inspections for plastics companies to help them better understand the state of health of their equipment.

On-Site Machining Services

It’s often not convenient to send in large components. To remedy this, we can come to you with our on-site machining services for plastics companies. We can bring laser alignment capabilities to your facility and provide milling and shimming bases for motors, pumps, and gearboxes.
