Machining & Fabrication Services

Our machine and fabrication shops are located in St. Louis, MO and at our KMEC division located in Houston, TX.   

In our St. Louis fabrication shop, we can size and fabricate all types of bulk material handling conveyors:  screw conveyors, drag conveyors, and belt conveyors.  As part of this service, we have the capability to create custom conveyor solutions to handle a wide variety of applications.  

The St. Louis machine shop is a full-service conventional machine shop. Their equipment includes horizontal and vertical broaches, horizontal mills, and lathes, which gives us the capability to machine bores and specialty shafts.  We also have a gear hob which can cut up to a 16 inch spur gear.

With the capabilities of these shops we are able to offer a unique service of repairing gearboxes.  We specialize in shaft mounts up to size 10.  We also repair helical, planetary, worm, cycloidal, and in-line gearboxes.

It's not just in St. Louis.  We have a variety of gearbox service options within the company.  We have a gearbox build center in-house for in-line (concentric) gearboxes. We assemble shaft-mount gearboxes for conveyor drive assemblies with motor mount, electric motor, sheaves, and v-belts.  We also build direct-drive gearbox and motor assemblies.  We have the capability both in-house and through partners to perform industrial gearbox repair.

One of the key benefits of our shops is that they are co-located with our extensive inventory in bearings and power transmission.  This allows us to utilize industry-standard product which is readily available from our inventory.
