Another successful installation of Boom Hinge Bearings
Cooperation with an OEM of port equipment has led to new successful installation of yet another boom hinge bearing.
The original bearing was worn out and had to be replaced. Based on good experiences at other terminals ánd a short leadtime for supply, the OEM company decided to do a complete overhaul. The bore in which the original bearings housed, was damaged and re-machined on site. By smart design, with the new dimensions given, the D-glide® bearing was machined to fit and supplied at the terminal for installation within 48 hours.
Since the design and material were new to the OEM company, the service providing company and final customer operating the cranes, DRIE-D was at the first installation for additional support, on-site service and supervision. Together the result was a successful installation!
