When industrial bearings are damaged or fail, there’s usually shaft damage too. For decades, we’ve saved operators time and money with cost-effective shaft recovery services. Forget the direct costs and inconvenience of stripping a complete machine or gearbox just to remove the shaft – and the lost production, expensive transport and repair costs, and reinstallation. We’ve got a proven alternative…

How can we save you time and money, and build your reputation for mending failed or damaged shafts in a fraction of the time of back-to-base repairs or shaft replacement?

Cost-effective on site shaft replacement services

As we’ve shown for decades, in situ shaft repairs are cost-effective, accurate, fast and help minimise expensive downtime.

Our shaft recovery services

Based on accurate datum points, parent metal specifications and detailed engineering drawings, we deploy specialist orbital machining and related techniques to repair the shaft:

  • Superfinishing (generally used when salvaging crankshafts on large marine diesel engines).
  • Shrink on sleeves.
  • Orbital welding.
  • Metal spraying.

We also repair worn bore-locations using our in situ boring equipment in combination with welding or metal spraying.

Metalock in action

Following a journal failure on a 40-tonne/hour cement ball mill, we orbitally machined the badly scored ball-mill driveshaft. This enabled fitting of a new white metal bearing and return of the mill to production with minimal disruption to operations – and none of the direct and indirect costs of removing and replacing the shaft.

 

Bringing our expertise to you, we carry out our professional shaft recovery services in situ, saving you money and reducing down time.
