Health Check

Efficient and economical risk assessment

The cornerstone of a successful operation

    Helping you make well-informed decisions with an instant overview of your machine, system or operation is highly valued. Health Check is a cost effective examination of the machine, irrespective of the manufacturer or brand, resulting in a condition and risk assessment report. Likewise, spare parts and other areas relevant to maintenance can also be assessed. Furthermore, the Health Check provides indications of the overall condition of the drivetrain.


    Health Checks tailor-made for the:

    • Power generation industry
    • Oil & gas industry
    • Mining & metals industry
    • Mechanical engineering industry

    We could draw important conclusions on the running behavior and current maintenance condition of a gear unit supported by clear data. The collaboration was excellent. We were totally pleased.
