Renewal of bearing assemblies

Use the economic advantages of preventive maintenance. Before the calculated service life of your Franke slewing rings expires, we will be happy to make you an offer for retreading. In many cases, it is sufficient to replace individual components such as raceway wires or rolling element cages to restore the bearing to full functionality. This saves time and money and is a valuable contribution to the conservation of resources and protection of the environment.
