Several crankshafts making their way through the welding department. Whether they have worn diameters, cracks or are even broken; there are proven methods to repair these. Our welding department uses time tested techniques along with new technology in their welding and stress relieving processes. In most cases, it is quicker and more cost effective to repair a crankshaft than to wait for a forging, allowing our customers to get back up and running quickly. Depending on the extent of damage, it may not always be the best choice. Personally, I have seen cases where a broken crankshaft was welded to repair and put into service for another 15 years before failure.

New adjustment screws for our customer’s 600 ton Stamtec. The spherical heads of the existing screws were worn & scored. MPA engineered and manufactured new ones changing the threads from Trapezoidal to Buttress to increase strength. When we reverse engineer a part, we take every opportunity to improve it

One of our customers had an ongoing issue with overload housing failure on their 2000 ton press. MPA was given the task to engineer and build (4) new overload assemblies. The new overloads are of an “enhanced” heavy duty design and feature a housing/cylinder machined from a one-piece high strength alloy steel forging. The overloads were designed, manufactured and tested in house while the press was still in production. A short outage was then scheduled in which MPA worked around the clock to install the overloads and run all new hydraulic piping.
