General Machining
Naismith Engineering can bore and key our full range of pulleys, sprockets and couplings to suit your applications. We have an extensive range of broach sets to accommodate a variety of standard and non-standard keyways. Bore sizes from as small as 6mm up to 230mm with a 50mm key are possible. We can bore to very close tolerances for bearings, and supply with circlip groves if needed.
We can taper turn to suit standard Taper Lock bushes and QD bushes.
Our CNC drilling facility enables us to provide very accurate drilled and tapped holes on a nominated PCD.
Our welding workshop can weld in ex-stock blank bosses and taper lock Weld-On hubs.

Poly-V & V-Pulleys Production
Poly-V or Micro V pulleys are now quite common in Australia. Naismith Engineering can make special ā€˜Jā€™ and ā€˜Lā€™ section Poly-V Pulleys from 20mm up to 400mm in aluminium and cast iron.
We can also make standard Vee Pulleys for SPA, SPB, SPC & SPZ up to 600mm in aluminium and cast iron.

Zero-Max Repair
Naismith Engineering is an authorised repairer for Zero-Max variable speed drives in Australia. We can fully recondition and replace all the normal wearing parts, in the full range of Zero-Max units. For a Zero-Max which has been damaged due to overload or misuse, but the external case is okay, we can replace all the internal parts for a much cheaper price than a new unit.
Turnaround time on most repairs is one week.

Fluid Coupling Repair
Our facility has the capability to refurbish and recondition the full range of Fluidomat fluid couplings. This includes replacement of all bearings and seals, and retesting to Fluidomat specifications.
Turnaround time on most repairs is one week.
