Shiloh Services has been rebuilding industrial equipment for over 30 years. Whether we are rebuilding a universal joint for a rolling steel mill, replacing bearings and seals in a fan housing, repairing polypropylene panels by plastic welding, or fabricating custom racks and crates, we have the capabilities and expertise to provide a one stop solution. Even if factory replacement parts are not available, we routinely fabricate replacement parts that are necessary to rebuild industrial equipment.
Our work typically starts with a full disassembly and cleaning of the piece of equipment to allow for a conditional assessment. Once the part is inspected, we notify our customers of the condition, required parts for rebuild, and a recommendation as to whether or not the equipment is salvageable. This allows our customers to complete a cost-benefit review and determine if replacement or rebuild is the best option.

Universal Joint Refurbishment
Shiloh staff has 20 years of experience disassembling, cleaning, inspecting, repairing damage, and reassembling industrial block type universal joints. These types of universal joints are used heavily in steel, aluminum, copper and brass metal industry for multiple types of mills including rolling mills, cold reduction mills, plate mills, pipe mills, structural mills, temper mills, etc. Our years of experience and knowledge in dealing with bearings and rolling surfaces allows our staff to evaluate condition of the joint and determine our ability to refurbish and not compromise the integrity of the joint.
Shiloh Services can repair damage to the cross journals and bearing cups, replace seals, and retrofit the universal joint to OEM tolerances.
Refurbishing services for Universal Joints includes cleaning, grinding and polishing of damaged bearing surfaces, installing replacement or over sized rolling elements, and replacement of lubricant seals. With our fabrication abilities, we can provide replacement slinger rings, roller guide rings, and thrust washers when necessary.
