A large engineering company had a serious machine breakdown requiring a rapid response. Two new gears were needed. Could we manufacture them?
Our team got to work and produced one phosphor bronze and one cast iron helical gear in four working days to enable the customer to get the machine running again.
The work included getting in the material overnight, turning the blanks, cutting the gears and final grinding. The customer was delighted with the service.
A regular customer, who supplies the sub sea oil and gas industry, required five shafts thread grinding and four nuts machining to meet a brought-forward deadline.
We managed to meet the deadline with a day to spare. Another delighted customer!
We have recently manufactured two new gear box shafts for a customer and are now in the process of rebuilding the box. Bearings and seals had to be airfreighted from the USA to meet the deadline to get the box back on line.
This work has included turning the shafts, grinding them, machining keyways, producing new keys, stripping down the box, reassembling it, painting it and final testing.
Please contact us to see how our rapid response team can help your business with its engineering needs.
