NDC assist large international car manufacturer in the north east

(15/09/2007)
During the annual factory shutdown, Maintenance Managers in the large paint shop found technical issues with a large soft start controlling air replacement fans.

NDC Engineers attended site to diagnose the problems. The soft start unit was taken away for a full refurbishment and prior to refit was tested extensively on a dynamometer. During this test the motor driven by the soft start was loaded substantially. We were able to assess the drive’s ability to handle load currents in excess of 250 Amps without incident. On return of the drive NDC engineers also diagnosed a further issue with a faulty shunt timer. This was replaced and the soft start was returned quickly to service in time for the factory start up.

The maintenance manager responsible for the plant was delighted:

 “This is the first time that I have used NDC for a repair or site service. I found your company to be very professional and responsive to our needs and we will look to use you again in the future.”
