A local worldwide bolt and nut manufacturer recently got in touch with us following a clutch failure – unfortunately for them this was a breakdown situation and ultimately ended up stopping their production.
The maintenance department got in touch with us and within one hour we had collected the clutch and it was identified as a Orlinghaus No 93. After checking specifications for both the friction material required and thickness, we CNC cut new friction segment blocks, removed old linings, degreased and shot blasted the steels. Finally we fitted the new friction segments using a thermal bonding and riveting process.
This was all completed to the customer’s satisfaction and the new, working clutch was returned to them the next day.
