Our client asked us to carry out an overhaul of the machine, due to excessive noise whilst in use. In addition, the machine was experiencing poor feed engagement.
Although the machine manufacturer ‘Simpech’ doesn’t exist as a company any longer, this machine is very versatile and nowadays you would need to buy 2 different machines to perform the same tasks that this obsolete machine can do. This machine is fairly small in size.
What We Did
We stripped the machine down, identified worn bearings in the PIV gearbox, intermediate gearbox shafts and main machine spindle shaft. These were replaced along with a new PIV chain.
The head feed gearbox was stripped down, worn bearings identified and replaced, worn gears replaced with new manufactured ones.
Our client is extremely happy with the repairs, the machine is in daily use and runs like new.
