It is a fact of life that machinery and equipment, once pressed into service, begins to wear. As equipment ages, wear takes its toll and, inevitably, worn parts must be replaced. In addition to replacement parts, equipment users often need to create a custom part to improve performance: an example would be adding a custom-designed rubber skirt to a machine in order to prevent damage, check the entry of dirt and debris, or shield workers from dangerous pinch points or other hazards. In this blog, we highlight the replacement and custom parts for machinery and equipment that CRG can supply.
The industrial machinery market often requires equipment-specific seals, pads, vibration isolators, skirting or dust covers that are not readily available. CRG’s extensive experience in developing solutions using rubber, plastics or other materials is proven and well known. Once we understand the application issues at hand, we assist our customers by developing and fabricating cost-effective, creative solutions.
It is not uncommon to find older machines and equipment still in use within many facilities. For such equipment, it may be difficult to find a replacement part, or have a part designed that will improve the operation and performance of the machine. In these cases, CRG can reverse-engineer or design the needed part, keeping the equipment running and improving its effectiveness.
In addition to supplying aftermarket parts, CRG often works with OEM’s and their product development teams to custom design and fabricate parts that are an integral part of the OEM’s product offering. OEM’s that we have worked with include those in the industrial machinery and equipment, healthcare, automotive, and transportation sectors.
