Ports and Terminals

Delivering and unloading resources from overseas is an essential part of modern-day economies. Completing that job requires some pretty heavy machinery. To keep resources traveling as intended, Chalmers & Kubeck offers a wide array of industrial services to our partners in shipyards and ports. We pride ourselves on being a trusted source for almost any industrial fix at ports and terminals. 

Our Services

C&K delivers a range of essential services to ports and terminals, all with quality at the forefront.

Gearbox Overhauls

With our gearbox overhauls for ports, we can completely revamp your systems and bring equipment to modern-day standards. Let us update your trolley, hoist, and gantry drives with a high-end overhaul. The C&K gear division has a vast collection of equipment and capabilities and can work with just about any gearbox brand.

Gear Manufacturing

If you need a new gear, we can manufacture it. Gear manufacturing for ports is available in many options, with precision ground gearing in helical, double helical, and internal and external spur configurations. We can construct gears with induction-hardened, carburized, or thru-hardened materials. From reverse engineering to service factor upgrades, our gear division is up for the job and follows American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) and DIN standards. We’ll also deliver emergency and on-site support services if needed.

Borescope Inspections

Borescope inspections for ports enable us to investigate your gearbox’s hard-to-reach areas and figure out where the problem lies for better repairs.

Laser Alignment Services

To deliver its best performance, port equipment needs to be precisely aligned. Our in-field laser alignment services let us do just that for gears and other components.

Welding Services

Our experienced welding division works with a wide range of metals and has certifications from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), and the National Board. One of our popular welding services for ports and terminals is custom platform and railing fabrication. We can also come to you for on-site support and emergency repairs.

On-Site Technical Support Services

Port equipment can’t be brought down to the shop, but with C&K locations up and down the East Coast, we can come to the shipyard and deliver on-site technical assistance when something goes down. We’ll help you get moving as quickly as possible to minimize downtime.

Your Partner in Port and Terminal Service, Sales, and Repairs

At C&K, we prioritize quality in everything we do. We take care to abide by robust third-party standards, and our highly trained technicians do what it takes to get the job done right. We’re up for a challenge and take your ports’ unique needs seriously.

Another key benefit of C&K services is our facilities’ extensive capabilities. We’re based out of a three-acre, state-of-the-art facility with an ISO certification and overhead cranes that can lift up to 50 tons. That means we can take on and successfully complete bigger projects. We’re a one-stop shop for ports and terminals, which often require robust fabrication capabilities.
