A case study of steel industry machine repair did by us:
An old client of ours brought in a friend who’s having a little problem with steel fabrication machine. The job required us to rebuild and repair the drive gear case that moves slabs of steel. To restore, we applied MIG welding for renewing the cracks, after which we used CNC machining to re-do the bores to be able to print specifications.
We reamed the holes and assembled the gear case with new hardware, installed the bearing seals, installed idler wheels, we installed and aligned seal rings, and finally, we sandblasted this 8.7” high x 9” long x 4” full gear case before we applied a yellow coating. We ensured we ran a test before delivering to the client’s facility, and he was well pleased.
