NU Gears – New or Refurbished Gearboxes

Having to replace a gearbox on a machine can be a very costly and long-winded process. In cases where the gearbox of a machine has a fault or is broken it can put a whole stop to a company’s manufacturing process. This could consequently cause a delay in the running of your business and possibly profit lose if the gear has broken on an essential machine for the day to day running of a business. However, do not panic, at Nu gears we have a quick and easy solution to get your business and machinery back up to full speed with our refurbished gearbox service. But what is the difference between purchasing a new gearbox and a refurbished gear box?

New Gearboxes

Buying a brand-new gearbox may seem like your only solution but this can be very expensive and, in most case, ends up costing more than the machine itself. All though there are some positives with the purchase of a new gear box such as the gearbox having a long service life because it is a brand-new unused gearbox.

On the other hand, there are also the negative factors to consider when purchasing a new gearbox. The gearbox you require is not always readily available this can cause the issue of the gearbox you require not being in stock meaning you may have to wait for one to become available or order from a central warehouse overseas. This can cause further problems down the line for your business, having to wait on units becoming available can cause you and your business to come to a standstill.

Also as mentioned previously brand-new gearboxes come with a very high price tag; it is worth considering whether the cost of the new gearbox exceeds the value of the machine.

Refurbished Gearboxes

Purchasing a refurbished gearbox from NU gears could be the solution to all your problems. At Nu gears we have an expert team of engineers who specialise in the restoration and refurNU gears - 2bishing of a gearbox. This process involves the gear box being completely stripped down and all aspects of the gearbox are checked for wear, tear and any damaged parts on the gearbox are replaced.

The common misconception about purchasing a refurbished gearbox is that the gearbox will be of lower quality. This is not the case the parts and specifications that need replacing are matched to those of the original manufacturer therefore the quality is similar if not the same as purchasing a brand-new gear box.

Furthermore, when purchasing a refurbished gearbox, it is essentially the same as you are buying a new unit but without the expensive price tag to come with it. In many cases, reconditioning a gearbox instead of buying a new one is a more economical route to take for most industrial companies.

At NU gears as one of the leading local engineering companies our goal is to reduce downtime to a minimum resulting in a quick, efficient and high-speed turnaround. Therefore, ensuring the refurbished gearboxes are returned to our customers as soon as possible and to the highest standard of quality.
