The unit type, ratings and customer specifications are clearly indicated on the job card ensuring that all divisions are aware of any special requirements. The required parts are pulled and then transferred to the WIP area situated in the stores.
Our store is fully stocked for quick and easy supply to either the assembly floor or for over-the-counter spare parts.
Once the assembly division is ready for the unit, the parts are then transferred to the assembly workstation for assembly. All labour and OEM parts are guaranteed for 12 months from date of despatch ex works.
Test facility where all new and repaired units go through for mandatory testing All units assembled, whether new or repaired, goes through a no-load testing and quality check before final painting. Where possible, the units are test run where the amperage, output speed are compared to the job card. Oil leaks and general condition running are checked and, if passed, will be transferred to the paint shop. Each unit has a test certificate issued to it which is available on request.
All units are painted to the standard of Hudaco Power Transmission colour or to the customer’s specification. The spray-painting facility is set up to carry out even the most difficult painting specifications including Corro 3 type anti- corrosive coatings. Our spray booth is well ventilated and well luminated to ensure paint consistency over the unit’s surface area. Should the customer require it, paint thicknesses on the anti-corrosive coatings are recorded and a test certificate issued. Where necessary, cross cut tests are carried out to ensure that correct adhesion of the paint has occurred.
Once all work has been completed, the unit is then transported to the packing area where it is prepared for transport. The unit is then moved to the despatch area ready for delivery or collection.
