New lathe new capabilities

February 20, 2019

Acrodyne’s workshop took delivery of a new lathe this month that will add to our already impressive workshop and Quick Response Centre (QRC). The new lathe with its longer bed, larger bore and new traveling steadies means that we now have the capabilities to produce F10/F12 extensions up to 1.5M in house.

Before and After

When a local Water Retailer needs a quick solution, Limitorque Quick Response Center (QRC) from Acrodyne comes to the rescue. A local Water Authority had a component failure with their current actuator, on evaluation it was revealed to be commercially economical to replace the actuator, this also meant that we were able to have the valve site up and running the very next day.
