Rotating Machinery Manufacturing

Mann Makhene Machinery Services are experts in rotating machinery manufacturing and refurbishing a wide range of parts & products of the highest quality standard.

Rotating machinery refers to machines that have moving parts that rotate or spin, such as pumps and fans. Rotating machinery manufacturing involves designing, producing, and assembling these types of machines. This can include everything from small electric motors to large industrial turbines.

Our rotating machinery manufacturing experience includes the manufacturing of individual impellers, rotor shafts & complete rotors for various compressors within the mining and industrial sector. All our work includes full-quality assurances, data books and extensive metallurgical research & testing with certain design checks & finite element analysis.

All parts manufactured or refurbished in our workshop are done to the highest international standards and according to detailed manufacturing procedures & drawings. We own the patent right for the manufacturing of casted impellers.

We are also well versed in reverse engineering & the re-design of all high-speed rotating parts & equipment where needed

Refurbishment

Rotating machinery refurbishment is the process of restoring and upgrading existing machinery to improve its performance and extend its lifespan. This process typically includes inspecting, cleaning, and repairing any damaged or worn parts, as well as replacing or upgrading components as needed.

The refurbishment process may include:

  • Inspection: A thorough inspection of the machinery is conducted to identify any issues or potential problems. This includes visual inspections, vibration analysis, and other diagnostic tests to assess the condition of the equipment.

  • Disassembly: Once any issues have been identified, the machinery is disassembled so that the individual components can be cleaned, inspected, and repaired or replaced as needed.

  • Cleaning: All components of the machinery are cleaned to remove any debris or buildup that may be causing problems. This helps to ensure that the equipment runs smoothly and efficiently.

  • Repairs and replacement: Any damaged or worn parts are repaired or replaced as needed. This may include things like bearings, gears, seals, and other critical components.

  • Upgrades: Depending on the condition of the equipment and the goals of the refurbishment project, upgrades may be made to improve performance and efficiency. This could include things like new control systems, advanced sensors, or other modern technologies.

  • Reassembly and testing: Once all repairs and upgrades have been completed, the machinery is reassembled and tested to ensure that it is operating correctly and efficiently.

Overall, rotating machinery refurbishment is an effective way to improve the performance and extend the lifespan of existing equipment, which can be a cost-effective alternative to buying new equipment.
