KACHELMANN GETRIEBE - Gearboxes for the recycling industry.

In the recycling industry, we rely on various gearbox types to meet your specific requirements and those of your machines. Our helical gearboxes are in high demand because they are robust, can transmit high torques and enable efficient power transmission. Worm gearboxes, which deliver a high torque at low speed, are ideal for crushing or conveying. Planetary gearboxes offer different speed levels and can therefore be used very flexibly. Bevel gearboxes control the material flow in conveyor systems and conveyor belts, while flat gearboxes excel in situations where space is at a premium.

Extruder gearboxes enable precise material feed. Belt and chain gearboxes round off our range and are often used in conveyor systems.

Our gearboxes can be used in a wide range of applications in the recycling industry: shredder systems, conveyor belts, sorting systems, crushers and grinding systems, screening and separation systems, extrusion machines, compressors and pumps, mills and granulators and conveyor vehicles and machines can all be equipped with our versatile gearboxes.

We repair your gearbox in no time at all.

Just 6 steps to an intact recycling system.

The service from KACHELMANN Getriebe leaves nothing to be desired, especially the desire for quick help. In just six steps, from contacting us to analysing, repairing and delivering, the gearbox in your recycling system will be back with you. We offer express repairs, because we know that you are in a hurry.


1. Call for help

Contact us via our 24-hour emergency hotline, use our digital contact form or send us an e-mail. Describe the problem with your gearbox and attach photos if possible.


2. Dismantling

There are two options: We come to you, dismantle the gearbox on site and pack it up, or you send us your gearbox with the help of a logistics partner. We will be happy to help you organise the transport.


3. Analysis

Your gearbox is analysed for faults at our factory. We prepare a damage analysis including a damage report. We are guaranteed to find the fault.


4. Repair

Individual parts that are defective may need to be remanufactured. We check the condition of bearings and wearing parts. Often the fault lies in the detail, we find it and provide a quick remedy.


5. Assembly

We assemble the complete gearbox and carry out a test run after assembly to ensure that your gearbox is 100% operational again.


6. Delivery

We send your gearbox to you with a reliable logistics partner or take care of the delivery ourselves so that we can take a final look at the ideal interaction between the gearbox and the system on site.

Customer opinions from the recycling industry.

A great service with the highest quality

Thank you for the uncomplicated solution to our problem!

The service and speed are unbeatable

You definitely deliver faster than I get an SAP order number internally...

The gearbox is already installed and runs perfectly.

I would like to thank you and the whole team of Kachelmann for the good cooperation. The gearbox is already installed and runs perfectly.

Absolutely satisfied, very good service, always happy to return!

Great that you have all the documents of the gearboxes immediately at hand ... with us it stops in 1990.
And some manufacturers could take a leaf out of the running time of your gearboxes.
