Overhaul forming rolls

Overhaul of forming roll system for a Newcor welder.

  • 1. Customer wished to place his drum welder in another plant and therefore the input direction of the sheet in the forming rolls needed to be changed from left to right.
  • 2. Also required mechanical overhaul of the forming rolls.
  • 1. New drawings where made to change the infeed direction of the forming rolls.
  • 2. After measuring the forming roll system, we noticed that the alignment of the bearings of the upper and lower roll where not in line.

Can I overhaul
a drum welding machine myself?

We would not recommend trying to overhaul a resistance drum welder yourself. Taking the matter into your own hands can lead to more problems and costs. To ensure the safety of your machine, and your workers, we suggest hiring a certified expert.

Why choose
MeltingTogether for repairs?

We have a safe, customized strategy to deal with issues relating to your welding machine. We offer fully safeguarded inspections and refurbishment services that work to provide you the best finish.

Our strategy

  • Inquiry and Deal
    • A customer will enquire about overhauling a drum welding head.
      We ask customers to provide as much information as possible and to include drawings and dimensions along with the reason for the overhaul. This is so we can understand how to tackle the problem safely and easily.
    • We then take a complete measurement of the machine’s parts to provide us with the alignment settings we need.
      MeltingTogether offers not only physical and technical support, but also the design and production of an electrical, pneumatical system for your weld head drum welder.
    • We thoroughly investigate whether an overhaul is necessary so that we can avoid direct damage to the barrel welder.
      Sometimes, it may be better to fully refurbish the resistance drum welding machine, rather than attempting to overhaul specific components.
    • A quote for a full, extensive inspection is provided.
  • The Inspection

    Once the customer has agreed on a price for the inspection report, we follow a detailed procedure to find the best way to overhaul the machine, at the best price.

    Our extensive inspection procedure follows the following steps:

    • The part or machine is tested to understand its current status on arrival at our facility.
    • It is then dismantled and cleaned, before we compare its measurements to the drawings provided.
    • If drawings haven’t been provided, we will create these.
    • A complete, detailed inspection report is made and sent to the customer.
    • The report will feature information regarding the status of the machine or part when it arrived with us.
    • The findings of the inspection with measurements and pictures.
    • Possible improvements we would recommend.
    • We will also provide an estimate price for the overhaul and how long we predict it will take.
    • The inspection report can be provided remotely, or the customer can visit our facility to discuss the report in depth.
    • We then send the customer an invoice for the inspection report along with a quote for the overhaul.

    Once you have the quote for the overhaul, you are more than welcome to shop around. However, we aim to provide all our customers with the best, most reasonable price.

  • The overhaul
    • When the customer has agreed on the quote and placed the order, the overhaul begins.
    • A complete refurbishment is provided to the welding head drum machine at our headquarters in the Netherlands based on the previously created inspection report.
    • Parts and equipment of the refurbished drum welder are dismantled for cleaning and tested using both a visual inspection and functionality test to ensure your machine complies with our testing procedure.
    • After the overhaul, the machine can be collection from our headquarters. If the customer cannot collect, a shipment quote is provided.
    • We will provide complete documentation regarding the repair of your drum welder machine for you to keep. This documentation includes a before and after report, no matter if it is the whole machine or simply just a part.

    We understand it is tempting to try and fix a problem yourself, however choosing an expert with a clear refurbishment strategy is safer, quicker and easier.
