Full Load Testing
Bucket Wheel Gearbox

This is a 24 Ton Gearbox built to replace a Thyssenkrupp unit at Port Hedland for Fortescue Metal Group (FMG). The unit we built has exactly the same footprint as the original, we supplied the slave gearbox and load generator on our own test rig.

The full load test was witnessed by FMG. A second full load test was carried out in Australia again witnessed by FMG, again most successful.

Totally Inverted Gearbox

This photograph shows 2 of 10 gearboxes we built and did full load testing on. These units double output shafts, can be turned upside down and thus used in left hand or right hand configuration.
