Charlton Jernigan, production engineer, removes a stainless steel shell from the the company’s CNC machine. This machine enables Rulmeca to offer a variety of Motorized Pulley shells for food processing and package handling applications. An extended overhead crane system, expanded repair area, as well as the CNC machine, necessitated the move to a new larger building in August 2018.
The new larger building enabled the company to completely revamp the stock of Motorized Pulley parts. Casie Moore, motorized pulley repair technician, places new motor rotors into the new parts rack.
