Fixing A Badly Worn Shaft
This past week we fixed a badly worn shaft. Because of the size and complexity, the shaft had to be repaired onsite. The picture on the left shows the uneven wear on the shaft. It was from 0.05 to 0.075 below specs. This uneven wear was increasing the maintenance costs of the facility. We machined in place the shaft and created a replaceable sleeve. The picture on the right shows the new sleeve (21.25" O.D. x 7") sweated on with approximately 0.005 press. Customer is satisfied with the results & speed we corrected the problem. Give us a call if we can help you with a unique problem.
