Reverse engineered and manufactured a new rolling mill housing to replace the existing part that sustained catastrophic damage. Our team generated the manufacturing prints, verifying all critical fits and dimensions, and machined the part to meet all technical requirements.
Engineered repair of friction washer for a plastic recycling plant in the PNW. This project included machining, shaft manufacturing, and balancing.
The pintle and bushings were damaged beyond repair and needed replacement. Our team precision machined the new parts to meet all technical specifications, including critical diameters, TIR, and surface finish.
Engineered repair solution for a damaged journal and worn-out bearing fit in an embossing roll. Our team manufactured a new journal and thermal spray repaired the drive side.
Large cruise ship needed emergency repair of its stabilizer assembly. A total of 10 components were precision machined, meeting all technical specifications and critical timeline.
Provided an engineered repair solution to damaged screw feeder equipment critical to paper packaging manufacturing. Read about our process in meeting all technical requirements and rush schedule.
Precision machined this cylinder equipment to meet OEM specifications. Accuracy of machining and conformance to technical specifications and timeline were critical to the equipment modification.
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.
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.
Western Machine Works manufactured a replacement shaft for a plate rolling drive roll based on the engineering team’s interference shaft fit design. The damaged drive roll was bored out to accommodate the new manufactured shaft.
The damage to the bearing fit on this rotor shaft was beyond repair. Used for a chemical compressor, the equipment’s concentricity was critical and fast turnaround was required.
A wood processing customer needed this silo gearbox repaired and rebuilt, due to its history of chronic failure. No manufacturing prints were available, so our team reverse engineered the parts.
The shaft of this motor armature was damaged beyond repair. The WMW team created the manufacturing drawing and manufactured the new shaft and machined the armature bore to 100% concentricity.
