Bearing Reclamation & Repair
Owners and operators of large plant and equipment today are faced with continuous budget cuts and cost-saving drives in their organizations. Suppliers and repair firms accommodate you only to a certain point before quality and reliability are compromised. This leaves END USERS in an obvious predicament. BiSA has successfully partnered with numerous END USERS who recognize the value of reclamation and repair and made a decision to take control of all used bearings generated in their operations. These customers now insist that all used bearings are evaluated by BiSA to determine suitability for reclamation or repair. The end result is delighted customers, extremely satisfied with the saving in equipment cost of repair, as well as zero compromise on quality. A simple yet well-structured Cost Optimization Agreement with BiSA allows you to identify all used bearings generated in your operations both internally and through outside repair firms, and reap significant savings in the cost of repairs.
BiSA also works closely with OEM’s and 3rd party repair firms to facilitate a reduction in cost for their customers and thus more competitive quotes and a resultant higher success in winning tenders in today’s highly competitive environment.
Bearing reclamation and repair is a viable alternative to bearing replacement that eliminates long lead times, shortens operational downtime, and results in significant cost savings (up to 90% of new).
Our warranty (on bearings and related components) covers not only the reclaimed bearing but also the direct equipment in which it operates and extends through engineering firms to end-users.
