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.
