Blox—a West Michigan-based company—produces eco-friendly shipping container modifications for your residential, commercial, or entertainment needs. Some of their more unique projects include pools, floating bars, and hunting cabins.
The team called us at HEL when the ram adjust on their brake press stopped working. Without it, Blox was forced to outsource their work.
Using our rigging capabilities, we removed the ram from the brake press. As we disassembled and analyzed the ram adjust system, we determined that the ball seat bushings were destroyed.
In this case, reverse engineering a great solution would have taken longer than ordering the correct parts. So we sourced and purchased the correct components instead—before reassembling and setting them to the proper clearances.
“HEL repaired everything in their shop, ordered necessary parts, and got us up and running quickly. They saved us from spending money on outsourced products,” said Jake Wurm of Blox.
Upon rigging everything back into place, the machine now runs incredibly well. In fact, the team at Blox was so pleased with the results that they want to engage with us further on other issues too.
“This was our first time working with the team at HEL, and it was such a smooth experience. The team was great and kept me informed throughout the repair process,” Jake said.
