Reverse Engineer Process
Reverse Engineer Process
"It's not too difficult to get it right once - but in this business you need to get it right every time, every day. It takes process experience and specialist know how of pumps as well as manufacturing and assembly processes." Toby Heintz, MD

Step by step creating quality - the reverse engineering process

  1. Quote: based on photographs of new or old and worn samples and some basic data (size and weight), the sales team will determine the price for the items and assemblies, normally within 1-3 days.
  2. Measure & scan: the geometric data of the parts is collected, including material tests and hardness. We use the latest CMM technology and CAD software for best possible accuracy and create a 3D virtual model.
  3. The data is edited and the original design intent including tolerances and clearances is determined, i.e. what the part should look like as opposed to the sample. The drawing is issued and the manufacturing process is determined to achieve all the required part properties.
  4. Patterns are made directly from the CAD data ensuring geometric integrity. Castings are made from the latest and most suitable materials in one of our many partner foundries all over Europe.
  5. Machining is done in our own well equipped workshop by a highly skilled and experienced team. "First time right" is our philosophy to keep the lead-time to a minimum.
  6. One of the most important steps in manufacturing parts with hydraulic profiles such as impellers and diffusers is the dressing & fettling, as well as the balancing. We take great care to ensure optimal flow for efficiency and perfect balance to avoid vibration.
  7. Assembly of parts in our workshop by our experienced service team ensures not only that all parts fit together, but also that the assembly will fit into the destination equipment and effects of interference fits are compensated.
  8. Each part is inspected thoroughly, during and after the manufacturing process. Dye pen, mag particle, x-ray and other NDT depending on the part and customer requirements, before then being prepped and conserved for shipment.

Documentation is an important part of the process, recording all process steps and ensuring traceability. Cross-sectional drawings of assemblies and all relevant test certificates are what our customers expect from us as a first class supplier.
