Metalock provides cost-effective crankshaft repair, crankpin (crankshaft journal) straightening and heat treatment services for industries like yours.

Lloyds accreditation

Metalock Engineering UK have been awarded, in accordance with the requirements of Lloyds Register, the Lloyds accreditation (No MNDE/REP/0073/03) for the In Situ annealing and re-machining of crankshafts installed in marine diesel engines.

Crankshaft repair – whatever the engine

Whatever your large industrial engine, and wherever it‘s located, our orbital crankpin machines and other specialised equipment mean we can do rapid, precision crankshaft and crankpin repairs. These include machine-crankshaft main-bearing journals on the same crankshafts in situ, on site, in dry dock or even during normal operations.

On land, in dock or at sea

On land, at dockside or mid-ocean, Metalock engineers regularly help customers avoid the cost and inconvenience of back-to-workshop repairs. When every minute of downtime means lost revenue, in situ repair and maintenance services such as the following earn their keep:

  • Crankshaft repair
  • Crankshaft straightening
  • Crankshaft heat treatment
  • Crankshaft journal repair
  • Crankshaft keyway repair
  • Crankpin heat treatment
  • Crankshaft regrinding
  • Crankshaft machining
  • Crankshaft polishing
  • Orbital crankpin machining/regrinding
  • Main bearing machining
  • Main bearing regrinding
  • Main bearing journal polishing/superfinishing

Imagine the cost of traditional workshop repairs…

Just imagine the time and costs involved in a traditional back-to-base repair:

  • Stripping the engine
  • Removal of the crankshaft
  • Transport to a machine shop
  • Regrinding or another repair
  • Return transport to site
  • Reinstallation
  • Engine rebuilding
  • Testing and commissioning

All the time, your vessel or other machinery will be out of service and not making you money... Now, imagine the benefits of our cost-effective in situ repair (in place, on site or aboard ship), including minimised downtime and avoidance of untimely replacement costs. That’s why Metalock makes sense every time…
