Reliable supply of high-quality spare parts: Reverse engineering from KSB
The global economy is currently facing an exceptional situation. Manufacturers have to scale back or shut down their production due to local regulations, and supply chains have been interrupted. This makes it all the more important to ensure a continuous, reliable supply of spare parts - especially for companies with a systematically relevant infrastructure such as nuclear plants, water utilities, chemical plants or refineries.
Should you need parts for non-KSB products, KSB's reverse engineering service is the ideal solution: we reproduce turned and cast parts that are difficult to source or no longer available. Thanks to this service, facilities can resume operations as quickly as possible and avoid potential modification measures.
Here’s how reverse engineering works at KSB
When reproducing spare parts, a practice also known as re-engineering, KSB quickly produces high-quality spare parts. All that is required are the dimensions of the original part or a sample for 3D measurement. KSB uses the digital CAD reconstruction method for destroyed or worn components. What is special about the reverse engineering process is that it enables KSB to produce components for pumps and other rotating equipment made by other manufacturers. KSB also uses the reverse engineering process for non-rotating equipment or prototype construction. KSB customers can count on KSB’s usual level of quality when it comes to reverse engineering. All of KSB’s resources, such as an in-house foundry, production sites and workshops, are involved. In addition, the rapid manufacturing process means that spare parts can be delivered especially quickly.
Optimised components equal major cost savings
KSB’s spare parts service is committed to providing comprehensive support and assistance to customers. As well as re-engineering, it also offers optimisation of components with regard to material, geometry and flow dynamics. The result: thanks to material upgrades and design improvements to components, maintenance costs can be significantly reduced.
Benefits of KSB’s spare parts service
- Short delivery times
- Replacements for original parts that are no longer available
- Longer service lives thanks to upgraded design, higher-grade materials or KSB’s special materials
