Project: Steam Turbine
Focus: Rebuilding / Realignment
When rebuilding steam turbines, it is common to replace older components and use existing assemblies. This presents the challenge of matching new components to the existing assemblies which have likely been in place for many years and exhibits quite a bit of wear. The accuracy of our Laser Tracker measurement equipment is just stunning. This data can be used to map inlet locations on the outer cylinders.
This information can then be used to check deviations from the original print or CAD Models and ultimately check any interference with the new inner cylinders prior to installation. This information can also be used to determine how much cutting or machining is necessary to match the existing outer cylinder to the inner cylinder.
Following any modifications, the Laser Tracker system can verify and document the changes to allow for accurate record keeping of the changes made.
Kadan brings a level of precision and accuracy to the Milling industry, that has been virtually nonexistent in previous years. Utilizing laser tracking and scanning technologies to deliver state of the art accuracy and speed to our clients. This technology allows our clients to make well informed decisions in a timely manner. The laser tracking technology Kadan uses has a high level of accuracy over a large distance. This allows for large machine alignment as well as other over sized components throughout the mill.
Kadan gets in and out, minimizing downtime for our clients is one of our highest priorities, in turn, allowing customers to get up and running in the shortest amount of time possible. Kadan services a wide assortment of mills such as: steel, roofing, paper, and all other types of mills.
