The scale of forging machinery (here, the frame for a 60-MN press) as well as the complexity of the machinery design mean that restoration may require six- to eight-month delivery schedules.
A 4-in. upsetter prior to restoration. The frame and other components on such a machine could take months to produce and deliver — giving strength to the logic of reconditioning such a system.
A rebuilt and reconditioned impact forging machine.
An Ajax-CECO upset-forging machine. In a rebuild effort, all components are disassembled from the frame, which is inspected for defects and dimensional accuracy. Then, new internal components are installed, to restore the machine to OEM specifications.
