• Rectificación «in situ» conjuntamente con el grupo Nicol & Andrew

    En Zamakona Yards en Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, estamos realizando conjuntamente con el grupo Nicol & Andrew una rectificación “in situ” del cigüeñal de un motor principal Bergen. Concretamente estamos mecanizando los cuatro apoyos de dicho cigüeñal (main journals) a 1mm por debajo del tamaño estándar.

     

    El grupo Nicol & Andrew es pionero en esta tecnología que requiere un trabajo artesanal con mucha práctica y experiencia. Zamakona Yards, como servicio autorizado, es el único capaz de realizarlo en las Islas Canarias y, en el resto del mundo, son pocas las empresas habilitadas para ello.

  • TRAINING WITH NICOL & ANDREW

    With the desire to improve the training of our employees and therefore the service we provide to our customers, Nicol & Andrew moved to the Canary Islands to train our staff.

     

    Originally founded in 1952, Nicol & Andrew was the first company of its kind to carry out in-situ machining and repairs on marine propulsion units such as diesel engines. The in-situ marine repairs allows a very rapid response and total dedication to getting the equipment back in running order in the minimum possible time.

     

    For ten days a training has been conducted in our facilities enabling us to grind and polish crankpin in situ without dismantling and removing the engine crankshaft.

     

    This saves time and cost and can repair 90% of damaged cranks. Currently our equipment allows for crankpin machining between 170-325 mm in diameter and 140-400 mm wide materials although for other measures, Nicol & Andrew would supply the necessary material.

     

    If you need more information about this and others services, please contact us.
