- The brailler is taken apart and placed in a
special vat of cleaning solvent. This will dissolve all the old grease and oil
and allow the dirt and grime to be released. The brailler is flushed in solvent
until it is completely clean and no dirt or oil and grease remain.
- After the vat solvent cleaning, the brailler
is placed in a special drying oven that will force clean dry heated air over
and through all parts until they are completely dry.
- The clean brailler (and parts) are
now taken to the repair bench where the brailler is carefully inspected to
determine what is wrong with it and what needs to be done to repair the
problem. If any parts or assemblies are determined to be defective, they are
repaired or replaced. The Braillery carries a complete stock of parts for
Perkins Braillers and only factory parts are used on the Perkins brailler. For
other braillers, which are no longer in production, we have an extensive
machine shop to fabricate or repair the necessary parts for these braillers.
- Now the necessary repairs are made
and the brailler is reassembled, lubricated and rust preventative applied. The
reassembled brailler is now adjusted and set to correct tolerances to produce
the highest quality of braille embossing possible. Here too, we adjust the
machine for easy and light key action.
- The brailler is now given several tests to
check and make sure all the parts of the machine are working correctly and that
all repairs and adjustments are correct, nothing is overlooked. A special
vibration test is done to determine if any problems might be brought about by
rough handling during shipping.
- The finished brailler is now ready
for packing and shipping.
- Your brailler is shipped and the warranty
information is logged
