Every industry has the challenge of dealing with parts that need replacement, but are from a previous generation of older machinery. The designs may be based on older, antiquated manufacturing methods of that time. Casting patterns may no longer be available. Extensive fixturing may be lost. Perhaps the supplier has closed and the knowledge and tooling to make the part is gone. For a variety of reasons, acquiring the original part manufactured in an original way may no longer be feasible.
We work with our customers to convert their legacy designs to create bearings or other parts made with modern methods from readily available stock material, ensuring we meet all the critical dimensions and functions of the original design. Contact us to discuss how we can help you convert your legacy design.
