Our customer was experiencing up to 3 month lead times and a lack of communication from their previous supplier a incoherent pricing structure and no quality assurance.

Customer contacted Moorgate to tender for the complete refurbishment of the Flaking roll including the replacement of the sleeves. We were asked to suggest suitable quality check methods including historical data capture for journal condition before and after refurbishment with full traceability.

Also to suggest suitable treatments to corrosive areas around the journal side faces and suitable bearing housing surface treatments.

It was important that the pricing structure had clarity and included all work.

Problems being addressed:

  1. Structuring a clear and coherent pricing structure
  2. Best communication methods to keep the customer fully informed
  3. Quality plan structure
  4. Best process sequence to reduce lead times.
