Hydraulic Cylinder Repair

When a hydraulic cylinder fails , you have two choices: buy a new cylinder or repair the old one. When you work with I.M.Engineering repairing your hydraulic cylinder is fast, easy and cost effective compared to replacing the entire cylinder. We believe that a quality cylinder is more than just a set of seals and a new paint job, we pride ourselves on our ability to return a cylinder to its original specifications “ The first time every time as an integral part of our quality process.

Hydraulic Pump

I.M.Engineering carry out repairs to hydraulic pumps for a wide range of customers which include Terex, Balfour Beatty Rail, Schweerbau rail, Serco rail and Northern Piling.

IMEngineering carry out repairs and overhauls to Blower units, Vaccum pumps, Transfer boxes, PTO boxes and Hydraulic motors for a wide range of customers which including; EEG Utilities, Clearwater, Balfour Beattie Rail, Serco Rail, Colas Rail, Loram Rail and Henderson Tankers.

We carry in stock exchange pumps and seal kits for certain applications. We started repairing pumps in 1996 when a customer of ours asked us to source an exchange pump for him because the main agent would not supply him with a new output shaft, after careful examination we were able to manufacture a new splined shaft, sourced a new set of seals and bearings we were able to supply him with a fully reconditioned pump at a third of the cost.

Since then we have purchased and adapted machines to meet the requirements of the above.

We conduct repairs and overhauls on any type of metal cased units including:

Transfer Boxes, Blower Units, Vaccum Pumps, PTO Units, Hydraulic Pumps and Hydraulic Gearbox Units.

Retaining Pins & Bushes

Manufacturing pins and bushes became part of our agenda to coincide with the amount of hydraulic ram cylinders we were repairing, as we were being asked to machine worn retaining eyes on cylinders it was imperative that we got the right size of bush before proceeding.

At times there was a delay getting these items from the customer or the manufacturer so inevitably the job would be held up. We decided that if we offered an alternative solution then it would speed up the process, we now offer a machining process for retaining pins and bushes, all pins are sent for a hardening process after machining before being ground finished to the original diameter.

Bronze and steel bushes are also manufactured in-house, we also supply precision and swivel bearings that are purchased from quality suppliers.

I.M. Engineering supply pins and bushes to the following industries:

Railway, Agricultural, Paper Industry, Mining, Concrete Plant, Lifting Cranes and Plant vehicles.
