ChockDesign launches its New Groove Design RotaChock

Tue, 23 February 2016

We are pleased to announce that moving into 2016 we are able to hold our prices at the same rate as in 2015, in fact we have held the prices for Four years in a row, despite increases in manufacturing and material cost. We want to remain a cost effective chocking solution and may we add that the team and I really appreciate all your business and enquiries.

2015 has been a challenging year for the offshore oil and gas business, and moving into 2016 it appears not to be getting any better but we continuing to support this market and hope we all hope to see growth in 2016.  We have continued to gain market share throughout marine and industrial market sectors and look forward to a great year.

I would like to make you aware of our New Groove design:

After continued development and investment we are pleased to announce our new Groove Design RotaChock, which has now been launched.  These advances to our machinery mounting and leveling technology introduced by the RotaChock team means a new tool groove recess has been formed into all of our RotaChock range. In our experience over 80% of installations have restricted physical access to the adjusting holes which causes the installer a challenge.  Our solution to the problem is to provide the RotaChock with a recessed tool groove that actually allows adjusting tools to locate into the adjusting hole.  

The new Tool Groove Recess Design is available now to our standard RotaChock at no additional cost.    

In addition to the recessed tool groove we have added round holes to further assist the field engineers and installers. 

We take pride in constantly listening to feedback from our engineering field teams and customers which enables our products to evolve, making our RotaChock products a market leader.  As a mechanical chocking innovator we engineer solutions to make the installation for RotaChock as easy and as simple as possible.  Always fast, completely reusable for the complete lifecycle of the machines.  This makes the RotaChock a market leading technology for all type of aligned machinery. 

RotaChock in combination with resilient mounts;

The installation of resilient mounts can be challenging because the base of the rubber mount needs to be aligned perfectly parallel to the machine foot to ensure optimal damping characteristics and life cycle of the rubber.

The traditional way to set up the resilient mount is to use the 4 adjustment bolts to eliminate any angle between the cap and the base plate, and then to fill the gap between the base plate of the mount and the foundation structure with either 2 compound epoxy resin or a custom made fitted steel plate.

The RotaChock mounting plate offers an economical alternative to epoxy resin or tailor made steel chocks. The adjustment bolts can be used to eliminate any angle between the foundation and base plate of the mount, after which the 4 chocks at the corners are adjusted to the correct height. The base plate, mounting plate and foundation are then securely tightened together with the 4 foundation bolts. The system is very flexible and can be re-adjusted at any time if necessary.

The time required to finish a typical installation can be cut back from several days to only a few hours.

We take pride in constantly listening to feedback from our engineering field teams and customers which enables our products to evolve, making our RotaChock products a market leader.  As a mechanical chocking innovator we engineer solutions to make the installation for RotaChock as easy and as simple as possible.  Always fast, completely reusable for the complete lifecycle of the machines.  This makes the RotaChock a market leading technology for all type of aligned machinery.
