Process Components specialise in Bearing Assembly repair and refurbishment
Most of the equipment supplied under our brands of KEK and PPS utilise some sort of bearing assembly. This key component is often ‘mission critical’ for the production process the equipment has been tasked with.
At Process Components we understand the demands placed on this type of component and always recommend holding a spare assembly, ensuring production down-time is kept to an absolute minimum.
We also recognise that speedy, cost effective repair of a damaged or worn bearing assembly can be of real benefit to our customers.
With this in mind, we have invested heavily in inspection, re-build and testing equipment at our Macclesfield facility.
Our fully audited Quality Management System, to ISO9001 ensures that we control and protect your goods from the moment they arrive at our facility until they are returned back to you. Documented Goods Receipt, Strip & Inspection reports and procedures track your goods through each stage of the process. We will provide you with a written estimate of the costs to complete the repair not completing any work without your prior approval.
Once you are happy for us to proceed, our team of experienced Fitters and Engineers is on-hand to complete the work but we can also call on specialist sub-contractors if needed. Here are just a few of the service we offer:
Full strip and component inspection
Refurbishment or Replacement
Bearing journal recovery – usually through Chrome deposit and re-grind processes
Static or Dynamic Balancing
Replacement parts and full rebuild
Final run-in and test
You can be assured that we only use the highest quality consumable parts including bearings, seals, washers and lubricants; and any new, replacement components will be manufactured and installed to the original equipment supplier’s specifications.
Once any repair is complete we want to make sure the bearing is in tip-top condition and run-in before we return it to you.
Our custom built test equipment has been developed in-house to carry out this task as quickly, efficiently and safely as possible. The test rig is configurable for vertically or horizontally mounted bearing assemblies, with the ability to run the spindle at variable speeds from 1rpm to above 20,000rpm.
The unit employs state of the art infrared sensors to check the temperature at each bearing journal, with these results recorded using the latest in data logging technology and provided to you with the returned assembly.
