Cast Iron Repair


This is part of an exhaust manifold off of a large CAT generator.  It was cracked in the crotch of the “Y”.  We ground out the crack to the full depth of the material then started welding the crack back up.


The repair was completed to the satisfaction of our customer and no leaks were reported.  We do not have  an oven so this cast iron was welded slowly and in a way that protected the piece from over heating.


Excavator Bucket Repair


The wear plates on this bucket were obviously worn.  The way the wear bars were installed from the factory was not the best way.  When the bars are installed parallel with the flow of the material they do not protect bucket well.



We removed the damaged wear bars and installed new wear bars perpendicular to the flow of material.  The reason this configuration is better is the dirt (in this case) will get caught between the the bars and protect the bucket bottom.  The material then is wearing against the hardened wear bars and dirt.
