Manufacture and Repair Process

The manufacturing and repair process takes place in our specially equipped factory, with the following facilities:

 

- A white metal section with two shot-blast facilities

- A tinning tank, five electric and two gas white metal furnaces

 

There are two processes we use to apply the white metal to the backing material; 

Centrifugal and Static Casting. We are able to centrifugally cast bearings up to 

1.1 metre in outside diameter and 1 metre in length.

 

The white metal used in the process is manufactured to international standards, analysed and certified to grade using our own spectrometer.

We carry approximately ten tonnes of white metal in stock to meet market requirements.

 

Our fully equipped workshop is designed to facilitate all manufacturing and repair processes in-house, all serviced by a six ton overhead crane.

 

Our staff have extensive experience in the manufacture and repair of white metal bearings; overseeing:

 

- A fully documented quality control system

- A complete range of inspection equipment, including ultrasonic diagnostic equipment
