Quality Heavy Machine Repair

News

 

 My presentation covered the repair of damaged parts from forging equipment such as crankshafts, pitmans, rams, columns, frames and other major component parts. I provided photos and examples of parts that we have repaired in the past and showed how these parts cab be restored for reuse in forging hammers, presses and upsetters. 
   I also discussed the manufacture of replacement parts. Most large forging equipment parts are not available as an off the shelf item and many equipment builders are no longer in business consequently making replacement parts is important. Parts can be reverse engineered and made new, some times redesigned and improved for better performance.
   The frames of forging equipment tend to be large and well built but they are not immune from cracks, wear or major failures. I will showed how these parts can be repaired and restored. Many times this work can be performed in the field to save time and the expense of rigging.
     Forging equipment is generally well built and durable consequently it is worth the cost to rebuild this equipment to keep it in service. Rebuilding is often necessary due to the tighter tolerances and standards required for finished parts. I discussed rebuilding and also up grading or modernizing equipment to take advantage of new technologies that are available for better operation, productivity and quality also for some equipment modernizing will save energy cost as well.
     I concluded with a brief discussion of preventative maintenance inspections for overall better tracking of the health of the forging equipment and minimizing down time and unscheduled repairs.
