A recent order is a superb illustration of Revimaxx’s knowledge and skill in boring. This involved a Flemish machine builder and specialist in industrial mechanical maintenance that needed a workpiece for a press.
‘It is quite a large workpiece that is part of a gigantic press. And at the same time, it is a textbook example of boring.’
‘We cannot pin a single label on all the customers who provide us with a task,’ said Van Meenen. ’They may be colleagues or competitors, customers and suppliers. So it goes without saying that we work closely together and know how to tap into each other’s specialities. A win-win situation, so to speak!’
For laymen, glass wool production is perhaps best compared to candyfloss. In both cases, fibres are blown off in a certain direction to form an airy whole. And in both cases, clumps are better avoided. With insulation, the goal is to assemble as homogeneous a product as possible composed of numerous minuscule air compartments. The result should provide the lowest possible Lambda value (λ). Such a precondition seemed impossible to achieve with clumps in the mats.
Revimaxx can carry out overhauls that are neither small nor simple as proven by two gigantic parts of an equally impressive gearbox. We are overhauling these parts at the request of steel giant ArcelorMittal.
It will not surprise many that there are no optimal conditions for rotating equipment and other process components in hot rolling mills. First, you have the considerable weight of the steel plates that pass through the mill. Second, high temperatures also exert an influence on the machines that manage the rolling process. That is why the heavy steel industry regularly engages Revimaxx to ensure process continuity.
