Crankshaft Repair does not require crankshaft to be removed from entablature. In recent past due to seizure of bearing or development of taper, ovality, loss of alignment of crankshaft it was necessary to remove the crankshaft from the engine block and send it to the designated workshop for crankshaft grinding and crankshaft repair.
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.
The crankshaft grinding machine is manufactured by us of diameter ranging from 60 to 700 mm. The machine is simple and easy to operate. We also provide training at the customer’s site for the operation and maintenance of the crankshaft grinding machine.
Company has sold more than 65 crankshaft grinding machine all over the world which are performing satisfactory. The machines are priced low and are ideally suited for large engineering, shipping companies, repair workshops, etc.More then 10000 Crankshafts are successfully repaired by us which is a record.
Crankshaft repair is possible without removing the crankshaft from the block.
In case of failure of bearing, it is generally observed that the crankshaft is damaged. While it is easy to replace the bearings it is challenging proposition to undertake the repair of crankshaft and put the engine back in to operation.

RA Power Solutions undertakes repair of crankshaft on site without removing it from the engine block. The portable, light weight crankshaft grinding machine is taken to the site by experienced technicians to undertake crankshaft repair by grinding.
The important parameters prior to crankshaft repair are checked like taper and ovality, hardness, crack, physical profile of lube oil and radius fillet, etc. In the event all the major parameters falls within the stipulated tolerances of the manufacturer’s specifications and tolerances crankshaft repair is undertaken.
RA Power Solutions can undertake crankshaft repair of diameter ranging as small as 60 mm to 700 mm onsite. The repair of crankshaft is also possible on board the vessel or while the vessel is sailing in high seas. All our technicians have necessary qualifications and have valid seaman passport.
RA Power Solutions has successfully undertaken repair of more than 10,000 crankshafts and is having four decades of experience to execute crankshaft repair successfully.
