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.
Removal of crankshaft for repair from the engine block inevitably translates to high cost of repair and downtime. 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.
Engine bearings for crankpin and main journal are manufactured by RA Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd. We also maintain stock of standard and undersized bearing in trimetal and bimetal of popular make and model of engines.
After grinding of crankpin and main journal of crankshafts undersize crankpin bearings and main journal bearings are required. It is observed that engine manufacturers in most of the times do not have inventory of undersized bearings, thus delaying the assembly and commissioning of engine.
RA Power Solutions undertake onsite grinding of crankshafts for last more than 37 years.We understand the importance of ready availability of standard bearing, undersized bearings of trimetal and bimetal and bearings for popular engines and models are available in stock. Following is the list of engine for which engine bearings are available.
RA Power Solutions stands guarantee for satisfactory performance of engine bearings. The main journal bearings and crank pin bearings are priced lower than the industry with immediate delivery.

RA Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd. has recently undertaken crack repair of cast iron engine block by metal stitching and metal locking process. Engine block which is made of cast iron was broken from the window cover sitting area. The engine block was broken in to pieces measuring approximate 330 x 420 mm.
RA Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd. after getting the dimensions got the casting made of cast iron and it was metal locked and metal stitched on board a vessel. The engine after repairs is performing satisfactory.
In 37 years of experience we have executed more than 1000 jobs of crack repair by metal stitching and metal lock surgery not only for shipping but for all sectors of industry.
Perhaps we are the only company in the world to execute crack repair of engine components or any crack in metal on board a vessel while sailing.
Metal stitching and metal locking process on board the vessel:

RA Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd. was called by a leading forging company based in western part of India manufacturing open forgings for heavy engineering plants. One of the operation involved use of clear space pneumatic hammer which they imported from massey of UK.
Due to constant use of forging hammer and its age the pneumatic chamber of the hammer developed a crack measuring 69 inches. The whole plant due to non operation of this critical equipment was on stand still. The pneumatic chamber is manufactured out of grey cast iron. The company tried to repair the crack by welding process and engaged a leading company to execute the repairs. The crack repair of the cast iron pneumatic chamber was not successful. RA Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd. was called to repair the crack by metal surgery process.
RA Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd. initially carried out magnetic particle test (MPI) and dye penetrant test of cast iron pneumatic chamber to check the exact length and the profile of the crack developed. The paint including red oxide applied on the cast iron pneumatic chamber was removed completely. The crack of 69 inches was repaired by our technicians by metal stitching and metal locking process.
The keys, master metal locks and all consumables used for metal surgery were imported from UK. After the completion of metal stitching and metal locking operations, the chemicals were applied to stop the air leakage from the pneumatic chamber.
This process of metal surgery followed by us for repair of crack in cast iron is cold process, no heat is generated and is proven method for successful repair of crack in cast iron casting.
We have more than 37 years of experience of executing crack repair in cast iron by metal surgery and have experienced technicians available to execute the crack repair onsite in minimum time and cost.
Reduce cost and breakdown time by Onsite Repair of Crankshaft
The failure of crankpin and main journal bearing causes serious damage to the crankshaft which are as following:
I) Development of excessive taper and ovality in Crankshaft, Crankpin and Main Journal.
II) Development of crack
III) Abnormal increase and decrease of hardness
IV) Loss of alignment of crankshaft resulting to the increase in deflection readings.
V) Development of bearing line marks, pitting, local depression
VI) Damage of radius fillet and lube oil profile
The removal of crankshaft from the engine block inevitably means high cost and disruption due to transportation and repair in the designated workshop. Removing and sending the crankshaft for repair to the workshop is now outdated.
RA Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd undertakes crankshaft repair onsite without removing it from engine block. The onsite crankshaft repair equipment is placed on the damaged crankpin through the inspection window of the engine block and the grinding is undertaken.
The onsite crankshaft grinding equipment developed and manufactured by us is capable to undertake grinding and polishing of crankshaft in one setting. The tolerances after crankshaft repair are strictly maintained as per the manufacturer’s specifications.
We have highly trained skilled team of technicians who are deputed to the plant site or on a vessel in a minimum possible time. The process followed by us for repair of crankshaft is faster, more cost effective and convenient. It ofcourse avoids removal of crankshaft and transport to the workshop.
The repair of crankshaft executed by RA Power Solutions Pvt. Ltd is approved by leading inspection agencies including Lloyds, DNV and many other inspecting agencies.
