Rubber

From aerospace applications to electronics and various consumer goods, rubber is an essential material across many industries and areas of life. Producing it requires an array of different components to work in concert with each other, and when one goes down, it can seriously affect the production line, profits, and company reputation. To keep your downtime to a minimum, Chalmers & Kubeck offers a comprehensive, unmatched array of industrial services, regardless of who made your equipment or when.

Our Services

The wide range of services we offer for rubber producers includes repairs, manufacturing, sales, and inspections. 

Gearbox Overhauls

Our gearbox overhauls for rubber companies are a great way to revitalize an obsolete gearbox. We can reverse engineer and manufacture these components for nearly any brand and bring your extruder or other equipment up to speed. One of our specialties is servicing Flender products, as we are a Flender-authorized sales and service center and offer Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) spare parts.

Gear Manufacturing

Following a gearbox failure, you may need new gears made, we can help there, too. C&K offers gear manufacturing for rubber companies, including reverse engineering and service factor upgrades. We can create precision ground gearing in helical, double helical, and internal or external spur configurations. We use a range of materials in thru-hardened, carburized, or induction-hardened options and can help you determine which solution will fit best in your needs.

Gear manufacturing is available in standard, emergency, and on-site support services.
