A failed bearing normally means a damaged shaft journal too. For decades the Metalock Engineering Group have saved operators all over the world time and money with cost-effective shaft recovery services anywhere in the world.
Forget the direct costs and inconvenience of stripping a complete machine, just to remove the shaft – and the lost production, expensive transport, repair costs, and reinstallation. We’ve got a proven alternative.
As we’ve shown for decades, in situ shaft repairs are cost-effective, accurate, fast and help minimise expensive downtime.
Based on accurate datum points, parent metal specifications and detailed engineering drawings, we deploy specialist orbital machining and related techniques to repair the shaft:
We also repair worn bore-locations using the same techniques, using our in-situ boring equipment in combination with welding or metal spraying or sleeving.
Removing a shaft and taking it to a workshop, or replacing it with a new shaft, incurs high direct and consequential costs. Our proven skills, experience and specialist equipment mean you save money and enjoy other benefits:
