Here at Edgerton Gear Precision Engineering in Ossett, we are proud to have been asked to make the parts for machinery that was used in the demolition of Ferrybridge cooling towers.

The pictures show various angles of the ‘demolition claw’ we helped to create, using ‘hinge’ (connects two objects), ‘shaft’ (rotates to transmit power), ‘boss’ (to align parts) and ‘bush’ (to reduce friction) mechanical engineering processes.

Weighing in at a whopping 11 tonnes, our customers needed our assistance in making the parts required to help create this sturdy piece of machinery.

We think the final product really pops out with our customer’s choice of colour. Did you spot the heavy-duty ‘demolition claw’ in any of the many videos posted online?
