The pulp and paper industry contains a wide scope of different types of continuous production. One common characteristic of all of them is the continuous nature of operations, and the inter-dependability each part has with each other.
Stoppages due to machine failure cause significant output loss, and cannot be tolerated in todays modern commercial environment. It is with this in mind that MIA members are skilled in the use of the Metalock onsite engineering process for the rapid repair of process equipment.
The Metalock process allows for the immediate diagnosis of the damage, where many of the repairs can be carried out onsite with little or no dismantling. Where the downtime is expected to be weeks, a Metalock repair can bring operations be back in hours or days, especially when using other members technicians to speed up the repair.
In addition to speed of repair, in many instances equipment can be repaired in stages to allow for production to continue during the repair procedure.
Our members have been working in pulp and paper engineering for decades, and have built up solid relationships with customers based on our excellent turn-around capabilities and understanding the needs of the customer.
Some of the repairs our members carry out include: ✺ Calendars, ✺ cylinders, ✺ gear boxes, ✺ rollers hackers & mixers, frames, ✺ hydrostatic debarking, ✺ drum tyres and thrust faces, ✺ machine frames, ✺ pumps
