Success Story

Industry – Agriculture
Region – Northwestern PA
Cost Savings – $22,255.98

Problem
Corn jammed in a gearbox. Because of this, the bearings within the gearbox failed, rendering the gearbox unusable.

Solution
The customer brought the failed bearings to the counter at ErieTec along with the seals and shaft for the gearbox so ErieTec could measure and find replacements.

Savings Calculation
The customer had 15 bushels of corn that would have gone bad if the gear box was not immediately fixed. Each bushel is worth $1,500, totaling $22,500. Their cost for the parts was just $224.02. As a result, the net savings amounts to $22,255.98.
