Faro Laser

Alignment and leveling with a Faro Laser

Long-term success begins with alignment on the factory floor. In one example, we used a Faro Laser to track the alignment of rolls and press equipment on the factory floor. This creates less downtime for machinery and ensures equipment is ready to run efficiently and accurately from the very beginning.

Millwright Services for Modern Business

Millwright services are an everyday part of the work here at Murphy Rigging. A millwright professional’s job is setting, installing, aligning, and leveling specialized equipment and machinery for various industrial applications. Millwrights provide precise work to ensure the proper fitment and operation of the machines and equipment that they install. Because they so often work on projects of differing shapes and sizes, millwright professionals are trained to learn quickly while on the job and to do so with precision. A millwright’s work also includes reading and interpreting various work orders and plans, as well as finding the best solution for equipment to be installed and operated effectively.

Millwright teams have a variety of tools to secure and level machinery. Teams will carry standard tools like wrenches and sockets to more specialized tools and jobs such as welders. Millwrights handle many different parts of a job and are experts at all things installation. From assembly and precision handling to everyday industrial equipment maintenance, millwrights have the training and experience to make sure everything will work correctly. In many jobs, the main component of proper equipment transportation and setup is welding and fabrication. While a millwright’s job isn’t only to weld, millwrights are skilled welders and experts in the field for various tasks with welding and oxyacetylene torch cutting.

A Leading Millwright Company

There is a lot that goes into being a professional and trusted millwright company. It takes more than simply having the right tools and a basic understanding of the work. Murphy has developed years of experience performing all aspects of millwright services, so we’ve come to understand all that it takes to successfully take care of our clients.

For example, to ensure the correct fit for each installation millwrights learn how to read precise work orders and blueprints for various jobs. An understanding of measurements, different fluids, and various parts of the machinery being installed comes in handy, and this is something our team has developed with years of experience. Many millwrights learn through apprenticeship and work their way up over about 3-4 years to learn all the skills needed. Murphy’s team is extremely experienced and has tenured millwrights on staff for every job.

Variety is a huge part of the job as well. While a small precision job may be available on some days, heavy lifting and machinery moving may be needed the next day. The Murphy team is well-rounded and ready for any different type of rigging or millwright job.
