Our range of equipment allows us to precision machine a wide variety of repaired components back to original specifications. Customers have often remarked the repaired component looks brand new.
Cast iron by nature is a difficult material to weld. If the right process is not applied it is very likely to crack. There are a number variables that must be controlled through the welding process such as temperature, movement on the material (expansion, contraction, buckling, distortion) and porosity (how clean the material is to weld). Also factors such as the thickness of the material and the position of the repair in the casting need to be considered. This will also determine the heating and cooling processes used.
Due to the specialised nature of welding cast iron, many Companies refuse to work with cast iron or will only attempt simple repairs with limited success. Advantage Welding and Machining has made cast iron repairs it’s speciality and has earned the reputation as the place to go whenever any cast iron repairs are required.
