Remanufacturing Processes

Industrial Chrome Plating

To enhance the mechanical and physical properties of hydraulic cylinder components, such as rods and internal cylinder tubes.

Watch This Process

Laser Cladding

To resurface worn or damaged cylinders, rolls and pistons to prime working condition. Our workstations can accommodate a 2.5-122cm diameter range, components up to 24.5 meters in length, and a maximum weight of 18144 kg.

Submerged Arc Welding

Allows for the joining of thicker materials and weld metal overlay for dimensional restoration and the application of corrosion resistance/hard surface coatings.

Diamond Grinding

Accurately removes material from a bore, using the diamond’s abrasive properties to produce a round and straight bore.
