The Timken Company has expanded its service offering at Standard Machine in Saskatoon to include Philadelphia Gear brand high-speed gearbox repair capabilities and Timken bearing remanufacturing services. End users in the energy sector particularly value expertise and rapid response from trusted suppliers that help keep their equipment running. Timken featured these services and other offerings at the Global Petroleum show June 10-12 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
This expansion of services provides energy customers in Canada with the same ready access to the intellectual property and know-how behind Philadelphia Gear branded high-speed gearbox designs that global end users and OEMs rely on to increase uptime and control costs. Standard Machine, now a part of the Timken Power Systems group, recently opened the first known dedicated high-speed gear test bay in Canada to further expand its expertise in gearbox services.
Timken acquired Standard Machine in 2013 to advance the company’s power systems services and capabilities in Canada. Standard Machine’s location near energy and mineral resources along with strong technical capabilities provide a platform for growth in Canada.
Bearing repair from the bearing experts is another service addition at Standard Machine. The Saskatoon facility is now equipped to provide a full range of bearing services from reclaim to reconditioning and remanufacture. Bearings can often be returned to like-new specifications in as little as one-third of the time it takes to purchase a new bearing. Comprehensive services include everything from cleaning, visual inspection and repackaging, all the way through complete replacement/reconditioning of critical roller components and raceways to return the bearings to like-new condition.
