The introduction of a light weight, vibration free crankshaft grinding equipment facilitates grinding of crankshaft, crankpin and crank main journal on the spot while the crankshaft is assembled in the engine block. There is no necessity of even decoupling of alternator and other accessories from the diesel engine. The portable crankshaft grinding machine is placed on the crankpin or crank main journal through the inspection window of the entablature and the grinding and polishing operation is done.

The crankshaft grinding machine is centre less, vibration free equipment which ensures that the centre line of the crankpin is maintained. The crankshaft grinding and crankshaft polishing is done in one setting.

Crankshaft Grinding Executed on Board a Vessel

RA Power Solutions has executed successfully grinding of 6 pins on board a vessel at Dumai/Lubuk Gaung Port, Indonesia of MAN B&W STX 6L23/30H.Engine

In this case, crankshaft grinding was required because all the CR pins having standard diameter of 185 mm developed taper and ovality. Out of 6 CR pins not even a single pin was seized  or crack was developed.
