Arrow Engineering's Job of The Week - 14/01/23

A bakery experienced a conveyor breakdown where the belt had tracked to one side causing it to snag and jam, breaking the Mesh belt support rods. Arrow Engineering were called in on Friday at 5pm with the need to get the drive back up and running. As a quick fix a 295mm Acetal disc was  turned and bolted to the existing hub, which stopped the belt riding up and over the conveyor wheel, 40 rods were turned and supplied over the weekend and the belt was back up and running for Monday.

31/10/22 – A Gin manufacturer in Lancashire experienced a production shutdown because two spring loaded Platform assemblies had seized and jammed the filling machine. The internal shafts of the machine had also bent. The breakdown occurred at 8pm on Monday and was taken back to Arrow’s workshop. Luckily, Arrow had spares in stock from a previous repair. The assemblies consisted of a 3 ft compressed spring, locked in with an end plate. Great care needed to be taken because when these are taken apart the spring fly’s out with great force. New end plates were manufactured and assembled with shafts, bearings and seals from stock to make the broken platforms like new. The Filling machine was back up and running by 8pm on Tuesday, producing one of the company’s’ new Alcohol-Free Gin’s.

09/01/23 -A leading biscuit manufacturing company held their annual maintenance shutdown over the Christmas holiday period and whilst their production staff were off decided to strip and replace a large shaft mount gearbox.

Unfortunately, the new replacement gearbox did not have the same diameter shaft as the new gearbox, which meant that the existing shaft needed to be built up or new sleeves making. Upon inspection it was revealed that the shaft and keyway was badly worn. It was decided that new sleeves would be made and the worn shaft turned down to suit, re-keyed and new sleeves manufactured to suit.
