PSA: Ductile Rocker Legs, Springs, and Slats

When looking to replace parts on your General Kinematics equipment it is important to make sure you are getting genuine GK parts. Time after time we hear horror stories of customers buying parts from “so and so’s discount warehouse” only to destroy their machine and sometimes even nullify their warranty.

 

General Kinematics puts as much effort into the design of each individual part as we do with our equipment to make sure that you are getting the maximum output. Take a GK Vibratory Stabilizers for example. Each and every stabilizer is expertly crafted with either abrasion resistant ductile iron, aluminum, or fabricated using our CNC robotic cell. Our stabilizers are built with a proven I-beam design which eliminates vertical and horizontal deflection and will provide your vibratory machines with the strongest stability in even the toughest applications. On top of that, each stabilizer is equipped with replaceable bushings, providing serviceability and longer life to your rocker legs.

 

GK is particularly proud of our springs. Each type of isolation and reactor spring are designed to give your equipment the optimal stroke or isolation. Springs are the heart of our vibratory equipment, and much like rocker legs, it is very important to keep GK springs on your equipment to achieve the optimal performance. If you replace springs with those from other sources, you will not get a spring that has been designed for optimal usage on GK heavy duty equipment, which could quickly result in machine failure and unintended downtime.

 

Slats, another part of the support system to your General Kinematics equipment, help to stabilize and keep your material flowing as it should. Other parts sellers may claim to have less expensive parts, however, this is simply not true. Not only is initial cost the same, if not less, the lifetime value of our parts are bar none.  Not to mention the time and headache you will save with increased uptime and GK’s Field Service team standing by.

 

Always consult your GK service member if replacing multiple parts on your equipment as our expert team may be able to identify a secondary issue at hand.
