FOCUSSING ON CUSTOMERS’ NEEDS!

Whilst the provision of innovative and highly effective technological solutions directly aims at globally leading OEMs, the Aftermarket and Service Business, there is an underlying objective looking at society at large: To provide sustainable solutions that equally take care of economic, ecological and social requirements. 

On the one hand, future-oriented solutions must build on expertise, know-how and experiences created in the past. One the other hand, however, these solutions must reach beyond today’s horizon.

Global population growth clearly requires increases in production, whilst clearly limited – and partly overused – natural resources require more consideration, more protection, less usage and more replacement by renewable and/or more intelligent solutions.

Increased efficiency of equipment is at the core of reducing environmental strains. It is against this background, and for providing our customers with the best possible and sustainable technologies, that we also strongly invest in Smart & Connected powertrain solutions.

AFTERMARKET AND SERVICE BUSINESS

The Aftermarket and Service Business of Walterscheid Powertrain Group is taken care of by 26 service locations which handle and ship about 20,000 spare parts daily. WPG’s Aftermarket Service Portfolio is provided to OEM customers and end users, it is supported by strong own brands and characterised by three key features: 

VALUE ADDED SERVICES 

The network of qualified Service Centers across Europe enables WPG to service shafts within a few hours and also to provide emergency service. The goal of these facilities is to help customers improve the operational performance of their equipment while lowering their total cost of ownership.

Assembling and repairing with original components is a must regarding quality and safety. Using original spare parts offers you many advantages:

  • More reliability
  • Fewer warranty replacements
  • Enhanced cost efficiency
  • Improved performance due to less vibration
  • Fewer risks

Uni-Cardan® specialists ensure every shaft is restored to its original performance standard – articulation, spline fit, weld integrity, alignment and dynamic balance are all carefully monitored and adjusted to provide you with a quality shaft that guarantees safe and reliable performance. Preventive checks by our specialists will locate any problem likely to lead to a breakdown.

After a breakdown, a quick service is essential to prevent you from long standing times and loss of earnings. Our Europe-wide network of Uni-Cardan® Service centers enables us to supply you with new shafts, replacements, and immediate on-site repair within the shortest period of time. For all Cardan shafts and constant velocity driveshafts in the drive train, for ancillary driveshafts as well as double-jointed driveshafts.

With our Powertrain Services’ advanced online condition monitoring solutions, faults are detected, reports are sent and corrective actions are planned, long before failure. Whether for it’s a driveshaft, bearing, gearbox or entire powertrain system, your critical equipment is never out of focus.

Our offline condition monitoring services give you the flexibility to supervise your own powertrain equipment. Our service experts install bespoke condition monitoring systems and customize them to your individual applications. Your local maintenance teams are informed automatically if abnormal conditions are identified. Of course, our service experts are always available to assist with signal analysis if support is required.
