Machine Shop & Engineering
Within IME we offer a selection of machines within our machine shop to assist with repair and manufacture of machined components.
We offer a selection of lathes from 1 meter to 5 meters in length, automatic and semi-automatic CNC machines. We also have two mills, 2 large radial drills, 2 presses at 50 and 70 tons including several smaller machines. This gives us the capability to undertake in house machining repairs and or manufacture of parts as part of our turn key operation.
We are able to offer a spiral welding service from 50mm-600mm in diameter, in both steel and stainless steel we can limit down time and undertake this form of repair to worn and damaged rotating equipment. Worn areas are prepared by machining back to clean steel, prior to building up with weld and machining back to the original size.
We are able to rebuild the worn area using metal spraying techniques utilising stainless steel, nickel or bronze.
Once metal has been sprayed, the built-up area can then be ground or machined to very fine tolerances, in order to produce a repaired component which is as good as the original.
This process along with our ability to fabricate and weld previously damaged parts allows for a quicker turnaround and recondition of your motors as well as being a more cost effective method of repair.
