One of the UK’s leading gearbox manufacturers regularly uses Kenward Precision Engineering to manufacture machine tool components to ensure that their production lines keep working.
We have recently completed two emergency jobs on time and to budget for this world-renowned company.
We have also recently completed the refurbishment of three gearboxes for a leading bioethanol manufacturer.
The boxes, which had been standing idle for over five years without any form of internal protective oil, were badly rusted and seized.
Our team of engineers in Huddersfield produced new gears where necessary, cleaned up those that could be salvaged, replaced all of the bearings and seals, rebuilt and painted the boxes.
They are now as good as new and ready to go on line.
We have just delivered a repaired gearbox to a customer whose factory was closed for maintenance work.
The job was originally just a seal and bearing change, new gears – which we had produced earlier – and a general clean up.
Ordinarily, this would have been a straightforward two-day job for our experienced engineers.
However, when they stripped down the gearbox, they realised that it had been running without oil, causing serious damage to the two main drive shafts.
By working over last weekend, our team turned two new shafts, cut the required keyways in, ground them to size and produced new keys.
The customer was delighted with the service and, most importantly, will have the plant running again without any loss of production.
