Read about our latest big production stopper!
This 1940's or 1950's 200HP, 6 pole Crompton Parkinson motor went down on Wednesday 21st December.
Our task was to ensure that production was ready to start again on Tuesday 3rd January. This meant 'all hands to the motor' through the Christmas holiday to carry out a rewind and refurbishment.
This motor approximate at nearly 2 Tonne is built like a tank, and of course they dont make them like this anymore, and to be able to still be in constant daily use some 70 years after it was munufactured is testament to the great british engineering standards of that period.
On the end of the extremely long shaft was this 12 groove D section belt pulley, which took some shifting, having no taper locks (they hadn't been invented when this pulley was made.
160 tonne wouldnt shift it to start with, but with heat and loads of penetrate it eventually moved!)
The Completed rewind was delivered back to the customer on time and installed by us in time for production to start up.
Here's to another 70 years, and get another big challenge completed on time!
All Delivered back to site ON TIME!
