Compressor Align Bore and Laser Align Bore Inspection

If you have experienced a failure or have concerns over irregular bearing wear, Tiger Machining can be on site quickly with our state of the art Laser Alignment system to inspect the crankshaft bore and determine if the alignment requires repair. We have field experience on a variety of makes of compressor frames and we stock semi-finished main bearing caps for popular models. Depending on the amount of damage and repairs needed, Tiger Machining can often repair compressor frames on-site with our portable boring bar, expediting the repair and getting you back to production.
