We have substantial machine shops which can produce most electro-mechanical components utilising our experienced mechanical engineering team.
This section also has one of the largest centre lathes available within the industry allowing the machining of large armatures, shafts and rotors. Re-keying and re-shafting of rotors are carried out on a routine basis, along with specialist motor repairs and motor part manufacture.
Repairs, overhaul and remanufacture are carried out to all types of bogies, traction motors and transformers including re-tyring of traction wheels and pressing facilities up to 50 tons. Bowers have developed a close liaison with the Heritage Rail Association and also has maintenance contracts looking after power assets within the traction manufacturing industry.
