Slip ring repair and maintenance
As part of the long-standing and successful partnership between the MacArtney Group and Focal, MacArtney operates an extensive network of specialised workshops to service and maintain Focal slip ring products.
MacArtney slip ring service
All MacArtney slip ring workshops can provide ongoing maintenance, service, testing and repair of all Focal slip ring models used in the marine marketplace. Furthermore, several of our workshops are able and equipped to complete overhaul and refurbish worn or damaged slip ring products, returning them to an ‘as new’ condition.
The right hands with the right tools
Our workshops are staffed by experienced slip ring technicians who all received advanced training from Focal. Moreover, our workshops are fitted with equipment and tools that mirror what one would find at Focal’s own manufacturing facility in Canada. This includes induction soldering equipment and advanced system test technologies.
Meticulous testing prevents operational downtime
Extending the operational lifespan and preventing costly downtime of serviced systems is of key importance to MacArtney. To comply with this, we apply several testing processes and technologies, including a custom-developed test bench that allows all slip rings to be tested while rotating. Moreover, we can test slip rings and fibre optic rotary joints at low temperatures - thus simulating conditions in harsh subsea environments.
Spares readily available
The MacArtney Group carries an extensive range of spare parts for slip rings to reduce system downtime during service further. Our standing stock includes mechanical parts, cables, bearings and other consumables required to refurbish slip ring units.
