UK Navy vessel HMS Protector

Back to overview

The propeller shaft and propeller blades arrived at our workshop, and the following run-out test of the propeller shaft showed no deflection. Therefore, we did not have to straighten the shaft. The propeller blades needed machining of the sealing surfaces. 

The propeller shaft coupling end had damages that needed repair to secure density. Using our micro welding equipment, we welded on metal plating to rebuild the scratches. This unique repair technique requires no machining afterward – only manual polishing is necessary.

This reduces the time of delivery and no workshop facility is necessary.
