IMM Industry Solutions:

Custom engineering and design of a 950 non-magnetic wireline drum. Tech division generated a 3D CAD model based on the customer’s prints, and from there incorporated several custom design features such as a bearing modification and cover plate addition. The CAD model was sent to the customer for insertion into their wireline drum assembly to ensure accurate fit-up prior to installation. Drawings and routers were generated from this model and sent to purchasing and then the shop floor for manufacturing. IMM prides itself on being a solution provider and this is another example of how IMM’s team can assist in the process.
