Thermal spray repair of large wicket gates for a hydroelectric power plant. Wicket gate stem fits were restored back to OEM specifications and saved on long-term maintenance cost.
Manufactured a critical shaft and test sleeve for a science research facility serving federal and commercial customers. Certifications and adherence to specified dimensions, surface finishes, and tolerances were required.
Manufactured and designed new roll and new shafts for upgraded performance.. No OEM drawing was available so the team reverse engineered the new roll and journals.
The main bearing failed catastrophically and damaged several components including the bearing housing cover, retaining nut, and sealing rings. The bearing housing itself was also damaged and new replacement was not available. With a critical timeline, our team completed all repairs and replacements within the required 10 days.
Precision machining of gas turbine components for a pollution control modification project at an Oregon power plant. The turbine case, combustion wrapper, and compressor discharge case were machined to precise specifications and completed within the shutdown timeline.
Comprehensive shaft repair for a global ship owner and operator. The propulsion shaft had three liners that were severely worn out and each one had a different interference fit that required precision machining. With stringent specifications and critical timeline, an engineering approach was needed from start to finish.
Comprehensive engineered repair for a forming roll critical to the manufacturing of a fiber cement product. Western Machine Works provided precision machining, shaft manufacturing and installation, grinding and balancing, non-destructive testing, and custom tooling. The result: customer saved capital dollars and time by refurbishing the roll instead of full replacement.
