Shackleton Engineering have been supplying both standard and special industrial gearboxes for over 40 years to many industrial sectors. These often went under trade names of Wallwork, Platt Wallwork and Babcock Gears as well as Shackleton Gears.
From our detailed record system we can readily refer back to the original drawings and parts listing and supply genuine spare parts such as bearings, shafts and gears.
We can also supply complete new gearboxes to directly replace the original units and so avoid the costly re-engineering work to use a different gearbox.
