Often times equipment must be repaired using OEM parts. When some original renewal parts are obsolete and unavailable, it is necessary to re-engineer them. This enables a customer to extend the life cycle of equipment, rather than sending that equipment to the scrap pile.
A re-engineered part has improved and up-to-date features that will make it better than the original. Shown here is a Cutler Hammer 30-inch crane brake base that was received in poor condition. It is a casting that had severe cracks and worn areas. This piece could not be straightened or repaired properly without compromising it’s structural quality. A new brake base was fabricated with internal gussets and new pin hinge points. This re-engineered and fabricated part is stronger than the OEM part and will provide the end user with many years of quality service.
