Agra’s engineering department is renowned for its high quality of workmanship and problem solving abilities.  Our experienced staff can offer guidance & practical solutions to the most challenging of problems.

The workshop has a wide variety of machinery which enables us to give a fast reliable service for customers looking for small batch & 1-off components, modifications, and general repairs

Our on-site capabilities include turning, milling, grinding, boring, honing, splining, and gear-cutting, along with specialist repair services such as metal-spraying, welding and brazing.

The gear-cutting department can manufacture or repair spur gears, helical gears, worm gears, dog-engagement gears, ring-gears, and sprockets in a variety of materials such as steel, cast-iron, aluminium, bronze, plastic, and tufnol.  If technical drawings are not available we can reverse engineer components from samples.

All work carried out is compliant with our ISO quality assurance program and we can supply full traceability & material certs on request.

We were asked to overhaul CFEM type gearboxes from one of our offshore clients which were failing due to their age & original design. After carrying out some research & development work we re-evaluated the design which was implemented following type approval from DNV. The new design allows the gearboxes to be serviced and re-assembled more accurately, with less materials wasted and removes the need for slippage tests to be carried out saving our customer time & money.
