Gearbox repair service companies enable gearboxes to have an increased service life as well as increased efficiency. Gearboxes can include a set of many different types of gears, the most common of which in industrial-type settings include spur gears, helical gears, planetary gears, miter gears, rack and pinion gears, worm gears and bevel gears. In addition, many gear box repair service companies also provide repair services for sprockets and splines, which are very closely related to gears.

Some typical issues that result in the requirement of gearbox repair services include transmission fluid leakage, gear slipping (most common in the automotive industry), overheating and surging of the transmission. In order to address many of these issues, and bring the gearboxes back to the quality standards achieved during their original manufacturing, gearbox repair service companies offer a diverse range of capabilities including stress analysis, cleaning, refurbishing, painting, assembly and teardown.

Additional services that they may offer include hobbing, grinding and shaping of the gearboxes. Some of the quality standards that gearbox repair service companies finished and repaired products must meet include original equipment manufacturers (OEM) standards and the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA) standards.
