Nuttall Onsite Bearing Overhaul for Steel Slitting Recoiler Drive

When a major steel processor in Ohio identified a problem with the bearings on their slitter line during routine vibration analysis, they turned to Nuttall Gear.

The Nuttall Gear Field Service team immediately put a plan of action in place to provide two service technicians for a complete replacement of the bearings on the critical recoiler drive. In order to minimize production downtime, the Nuttall Gear team came in during an off-peak weekend time slot and accomplished the task in only 16 hours. The mill was back up and running first thing Monday morning.

Nuttall Gear supplied all of the tooling and labor necessary to complete the job, which freed up the customer’s maintenance team for other critical repairs in the plant during the short two-day outage. The customer was extremely pleased with Nuttall Gear’s response and high level of commitment.

Nuttall Gear Field Service offers many value-added solutions and services to help minimize downtime and increase productivity. From routine maintenance services, such as vibration analysis and conditional assessments, to full upgrades and emergency repairs, Nuttall Gear is committed to their customer’s equipment and production needs.
