ECI on new and bespoke contracts via USL TEKSERV.
With more complex and substantial machining demands for projects, Ekspan now operate a state-of-the-art Hurco DCX3226i CNC machine, an essential addition to their in-house manufacturing facilities.
USL Ekspan is the UK's largest quality bearing supplier and installer to meet demands both in the UK and worldwide.
USL Ekspan install an extensive range of mechanical and elastomeric expansion joints and seal joints to CD358 standards.
Bridge jacking and temporary works are an essential part of most bearing replacement and refurbishment operations, ensuring works are carried out safely and efficiently without affecting the integrity of the structure.
The importance of carrying out bearing and expansion joint inspections by proficient and competent engineers who understand their functionality can often be key to maximising a structure’s lifespan and avoiding major, unexpected, emergency repair costs.
USL Ekspan have carried out a number of projects for swing bridges and foot bridges. From design, fabrication of all structural components, to trial erection and final installation. Details of these type of bridge installations can be supplied on request.
USL Ekspan were initially engaged at the Bridges conference in Edinburgh where ideas for how to best repair the defective structure were discussed. The ideas discussed by the USL Ekspan technical team were taken forward by the engineers and a scheme to replace all of the structural rail bearings to provide a more robust and stable solution.
Following a successful bidding process with our client including a comprehensive presentation delivered by our Director Spencer Goff the contract for the supply and installation of structural bearings plus associated temporary works was awarded.
Fabrication of 275 bearings well under way in order to achieve our proposed on site start of 1st June 2021.
Some of the images attached show the bulk manufacture taken place at the compass works machining facility. All bearings are UK manufactured and fully EN137-5:2005 and EN1337-8:2007 compliant. Once completed this will be one of the largest production runs we have achieved as a manufacturing facility.
