Bespoke Solutions Save You Money

When we tackled the in situ recovery of a 915mm diameter x 915 mm long cement mill bearing journal,  our orbital machining technology salvaged the shaft diameter at a fraction of the cost of conventional shaft replacement. Ingenuity and innovation underpin our position as a leader in specialist engineering services for the process industries.

When Lafarge Cement challenged us to machine a 5.2m diameter rotary base table, we designed an extra special machining rig to get the job done.

It’s examples like these that endear us to demanding customers around the world.
