Packaging Machinery Spare Part4th Nov 2013
Penta's toolmaking and aluminium machining skills answer an urgent requirement from a pharmaceutical manufacturer.
Following an operational breakdown, we received a request from a pharmaceutical health care product manufacturer to help with their urgent requirement for a packaging machinery spare part.
The components were damaged beyond use and Marchesini, the Italian machine manufacturer, were offering a lead time in excess of six weeks for the replacement parts.
With only digital photographs to base our quotation on, we estimated a seven-day turnaround from receipt of the sample part and were given the go ahead by the customer.
The Penta Solution
After lengthy discussions on how the component functioned and what the critical features were, we used our extensive reverse engineering and aluminium machining skills to manufacture two duplicate aluminium anodised components in just seven days and at a significantly lower cost than the Italian OEM.
