Our Field Machining Division was dispatched to repair an inboard fan shaft for a Utility customer in the Midwest. We mobilized a total of 4 specialty field machining personnel, and began the process of machining the inboard fan shaft which had severe shaft damage and hard spots. We cleaned up 100% of the shaft, had hardness checks performed, and then proceeded to final hone and polish.
The total duration of the project was 3 days from start to finish, and the end result was another satisfied customer. The photos below will give you an idea of the severity of the original shaft damage, as well as the final condition upon completion. Another great project by our Field Machining Division!
