In house machining for faster turnaround
Newmont Boddington (Newmont) recently had a Metso MP1000 adjustment ring in for repair at our Crushing Solutions branch in Naval Base, Western Australia, Australia. The adjustment ring required repair works such as:
- Full assessment prior to repair including 3D laser scanning of worn areas to determine repair scope
- Pre machine of all worn areas and weld build up as required
Non destructive testing (NDT) and post weld heat treatment (PWHT) after repairs
- Supply of all replacement parts required
- Machine threads, seating face and internal faces and all welded locations
All work was completed in-house including the required machining, which was preformed at H-E Parts Engineering division, Allgo Engineering (Allgo).
