LucasMWF – Industrial Machine FAQ
Does industrial machine size or weight matter in what you’ll repair?
Yes and no.
In some cases, it’s more feasible (or economical) to have the machine brought to us. The turnaround time on repair can be quicker when the machine is at our facility. However, it may not be justifiable (or possible) to move a machine from your site.
- Size of your industrial machine
- Positioning in your facility
- Weight of machine
This is when we bring our mobile repair facility to you. We establish a suitable and safe work area around the machine. For machines that operate around customers, we’re also able to work after hours and on weekends to ensure customer safety and minimal downtime.
Does industrial machine type or complexity matter?
LucasMWF has worked with a variety of industrial machines such as completely unique and industry-specific machines (i.e. there’s only a handful in the world).
We have repaired machines with complex circuitry, delicate components, and sensitive needs. LucasMWF most commonly performs welding repairs on structural aspects; however, we have ways of accommodating corrective repairs. Some machines cannot receive significant impact from hammers or heat from torches. Some machines with complex computer systems require delicate repair methods. Alternatively, we have hydraulic equipment that can push, pull, and twist structural pieces back into position.
Does the location of your industrial machine matter?
We’ve had some exceptions.
The majority of what we repair is in warehouse and production settings. Some of those machines can be difficult to reach with larger repair equipment, especially if the factory is congested. We’re usually able to overcome these obstacles with special tooling and equipment attachments.
We’re willing to discuss the circumstances of every situation.
