and Machine Repair
In order to
save cost and time, many of our customers choose to have their parts
and machines repaired instead of buying new. We can evaluate your
part or machine to decide whether it's more cost effective to repair
and if can be repaired. For example, many shafts with warn bearing
surfaces can be repaired with a new sleeve welded in place and the
outside turned to the correct diameter. Contact
us with repair needs so we can help you.

will not work properly.
time the restrictor heads that control back pressure and
alignment require repair. Typically the taper gets worn
completely rebuild the taper back to the OEM specifications.
It is also a good time to replace worn bearings, that keep
the rotary screw aligned.
When there becomes excessive wear and clearance
around the 3-wing bearing surfaces, it is time repair and
rebuild the knife assembly components.
Typically the round bearing surfaces of the
3-wing cutter can be sleeved with a hardened material. Then
the mating faces on cutter plates and spacer ring can be machined
smooth again to produce a sharp cutting edge.
