Not everything goes according to plan. When that happens, ECG can help! Reverse engineering is typically required when a customer experiences a field failure and a critical spare does not exist. In the case of components that have been in the field for many years, original drawings may no longer be available.
Upon receiving the failed component, ECG's team of experts will assess the damage and determine if repair is possible. If not, a new replacement drawing will be meticulously crafted and presented for review and approval. Once given the green light, ECG will rapidly expedite the critically needed part to the customer, ensuring minimal downtime and maximum efficiency.
A client recently suffered a catastrophic failure that resulted in their facility shutting down. Fortunately, ECG was able to reverse engineer the damaged crankshaft and construct a new one within a mere six weeks! This swift turnaround allowed the customer to get their manufacturing facility up and running in record time, resulting in significant savings in both time and money.
