Dough Mixers

We don't just fix large equipment. An opportunity recently came to Horner Louisville from a company who leases out Pizza dough mixing machines to Pizza stores along with other Restaurant equipment. As you can well imagine, these machines are treated like Rental Cars as nobody considers them their property and they’re not maintained very well. Horner Louisville secured the business after a competitor in Louisville took advantage of the situation and had increased their price to stratospheric levels. The units originally came in to Horner Louisville to have us check out and repair the motors which resulted in either a recondition [...]

Fractures were found in the risers exiting the commutator bars with a design from Siemens that would definitely be considered “non-standard.” Many of the design characterizations were due to lots of horsepower in a fairly small frame. We replaced the commutator, windings, and [...]
