Our team of engineers are completing a large spares order for Europe’s largest supplier of boiler cleaning equipment.
The work, mainly of pinion shafts and helical gears, has taken several weeks and has included many of the processes we offer – turning, gear cutting, gear grinding, splining, surface grinding and bore grinding.
Meanwhile a large chemical processing plant that uses Kenward as a preferred supplier for engineering repairs has sent in large, complex valve which requires machining to a high tolerance.
Locating the valve on the grinding machine proved a challenge but we are now ready to start the machining process and return it within the tight schedule required by the customer.
Elsewhere in the workshop, we have completed the machining of a large set of nylon gears for a manufacturer of liquid filling machines. The customer uses Kenward regularly for the machining of gears from several different materials.
We are pleased that a recently reformed manufacturer of textile finishing machines is using us as its principal supplier of precision engineered components. These include special screws and fixings, small and large shafts and special blocks and brackets.
Finally, few precision engineering businesses will machine cast iron bar due to the potential for the swarf contaminating the lubricants. We simply change the lubricant when the job is finished.
We are happy to machine cast iron and we get fairly regular work of this type.
