Winkle was founded as a remanufacturing facility
specializing in the restoration and recertification of lifting
magnets for the steel industry, leading to first-hand
familiarity with all major magnet brands. Our repair and rebuild
capabilities quickly expanded to include a full range of fabricated
lifting devices, crane components, electrical systems and
From small parts to whole goods, components
entrusted to our rebuild services receive full advantage of
Winkle's engineering expertise, advanced manufacturing
technologies and quality processes. Engineering staff
monitors all incoming equipment to quickly assess any requirements
for reverse engineering
of damaged components or design
upgrades requested by the customer. Customer part numbers
are compared to our service database to locate any existing
drawings or guidelines for service procedures. All repairs
and improvements are then fully documented for future reference
by both the customer and by Winkle staff.
Gleason Reel Corporation recently made Winkle their first and only authorized repair facility for Gleason cable and hose reels, as well as festoon and PowerTrak™ systems. We provide repair and refurbishing service for all Gleason customers, restoring these components to original factory specifications and quickly returning them to service.
Winkle's specialized experience provides
a foundation of knowledge that allows us to look beyond the
remanufacturing processes that a component might require,
and to recognize its functional requirements in the field.
This insight means we can ensure that the restoration processes
are properly applied to preserve the design integrity of the
part, and take steps to prevent premature component failures
from the recurring.
