Throughout the life of a machine, incidents can occur damaging components such as engine blocks, large castings, axles, pivot shafts, and drums. In the past these components would have been considered unrepairable. Not any more. Through welding and machining techniques, damaged engine blocks, large castings, axles, pivot shafts (up to 12' in length) and drums can be built back up and machined to exact specifications. Due to our customers' need for flexible services, we offer welding and fabrication services in the field for on-site repairs and modifications to any make or model machine.
