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.
