The Refurbishing-Service from Franke
If Franke bearing assemblies are approaching the end of their estimated service life during use, the bearing is removed and sent to Franke for assessment. An initial visual inspection and assessment of the options for retreading is carried out there.
If the external condition of the bearing justifies an overhaul, the bearing is opened and dismantled into its individual parts. Even at this stage, the Franke specialists recognize the existing recycling potential.
A new bearing element is then manufactured from races, rolling elements and a cage and inserted into the existing housing parts. After assembly, the bearing is inspected in accordance with current quality standards and, if necessary, undergoes test runs on suitable test benches. If all specifications are reliably met, the bearing is returned to the customer. There it can be reinstalled and provide movement as if nothing had happened.
