Comprehensive Installation Assistance And Field Service

Messinger Bearings provides expert field service support over the lifetime of the bearing to protect your valuable investment and keep downtime to a minimum.

From the moment the bearing is installed, Messinger works with its customers to provide on-site bearing analysis, allowing our team to assess and track bearing performance while it is in operation. This service furnishes critical information and provides trended data back to the customer that can be used to more accurately predict the ideal time for a bearing change-out.

Predictive Maintenance

Messinger's predictive maintenance aids the customer in avoiding unexpected down time and assists in scheduling for a planned change out of the slewing bearing.

On Site Inspections

When a bearing is removed from service, Messinger's field service team can inspect it in the field and have it sent to Messinger's facility to receive a closer look prior to repair.

Storage & Replacement

Proper storage of slewing ring bearings is a necessity for critical spares in heavy industry. There are several different methods including recertification, interval lubrication and rotation, and storage tanks. Messinger offers both long and short term storage solutions to fit your budget and ensure that your replacement bearing is in peak condition at the time of installation.

Messinger's field service team is ready to assist you with storage solutions, installation assistance, predictive maintenance, and field inspections throughout the lifetime of your slewing bearing.
