The Expander System – the permanent solution to lug wear
All machinery is subject to lug wear over time – resulting in line boring, a costly repair & the dreaded word for anyone in the construction industry…DOWNTIME. Loose machine parts also cause a number of different problems affecting your productivity:
- Reduced Precision
The Expander System offers an advanced, cost effective solution that prevents pivot wear and removes the need for line boring, once and for all. Using the Expander system also means that repairs can be carried out directly in the worn mountings without welding, or line boring.
How the Expander System Works…as easy as 123!
- Installed directly into the existing mounting without expensive welding or line boring.
- When the fasteners are tightened, the washer presses the slotted expansion sleeve up the tapered ends of the pin.
- The Sleeves expand & conform to with the wear pattern, locking the system in the pivot lug.
This system offers by far the simplest & most economical way to resolve the problems with worn pivot lugs. the system is covered by lifetime guarantee (10 years/10,000 hours) and provides the longest lifespan for this type of repair. Double sided locking on the pins gives increased safety and they pins are also easy to remove & install. Long term tests have shown that the Expander System can withstand 50,000 hours of use without developing any play.

All machinery is subject to lug wear over time. This results in costly repairs & production losses – all downtime for you!! A traditional pin has a certain degree of play built in, which leads to a growing problem sooner…
- Transport to workshop
- Line boring
- Risk of immobilisation
- The problem of loose joints will recur
Traditional repair methods consist of a multi-step process of welding and line boring, which cannot easily be carried out in the field, therefore resulting in additional downtime & costs.
