- Modify, repair injection moulds or machine parts.
No job to small, what we can do is endless, give us a ring and discuss your needs (09) 914 3795
Repair Nitrided tools, there are some limits on this but we have had considerable success in this area
- Fix tool makers mistakes.
No matter how small we can hide mistakes so the customer will never see them!
- Add "above part line" material to moulds.
Instead of inserts or machining away volumes of metal to get small 'above part line features' we can build these as required
- Repair cracks etc.
Open the crack with the laser then fill with crack resistant material and cap with material similar to the parent metal
The crack will not propagate back through the crack resistant material.
- Amour edges, faces.
Repair or amour edges and faces, blanking faces etc. with up 55Rc material or High Speed Steel..
- Amour beryllium copper with steel.
Armour blanking faces
Armour, repair BeCu inserts against erosion from glass filled materials, gas erosion etc.
We can cover a BeCu insert completely with steel to give the best of both worlds, good cooling and a wear resistant surface.
We can weld HSS directly to Beryllium Copper with complete success, have been doing it for a number of years now.
- Repair copper EDM electrodes.
Dropped the electrode? Worn corners? Need changes? we can fix these problems
- Hard face heal blocks and slides.
Heal block or slide faces picked up or worn? We can hard face these so it won't happen again
If the slide has picked up in it's slot we can repair with Aluminium Bronze giving a good wear surface that won't pick up.
- Repair worn out gates.
Repair gates that have been eroded by abrasive materials, sub-gates can be fun, give us a ring to discuss
Hot runner gates can be repaired, again check with us first
- Repair Modify Aluminium Blow moulds.
Repair cut offs, edge damage, tool makers mistakes, fill in engraved lettering, etc.
We have done some extensive changes to blow moulds because we do not distort the block no matter how much metal we put down as heat input is very low.
- Assembly welding of small machine, medical, scientific etc., components.
Fusion welding (no added metal) of a wide range of metals
- We can weld / repair any smallish metal parts for almost any industry.
Repairs to key ways, bearing and shaft seal wear
Pick up on or damage to hydraulic piston rods or similar sliding parts, re-chroming can be avoided.
The list is endless, but do check with us first.
Repair rust damage, electrical switch parts, anything where other welding systems would destroy the parts
We can weld very small parts, we have repaired a solenoid part that was 2.0mm x 0.5mm.
- Repairs to Clicking Knives - major savings
Small chips in clicking knives can be very expensive to fix, requiring a grind down and hours of resharpening. We have successfully repaired these with 55Rc material requiring only a few minutes to blend & sharpen the weld to the original edge.
We weld and repair parts for the aerospace industry
Automotive Dog Gears
As used in racing gear boxes. We repair the damaged teath to better than original quality with a special high impact low wear material. The repaired gears offer extended service over orginal.
- Aluminium Cylinder Heads
Fill gasket idents, saves machining the head. Damage from foriegn matter in the cylinder (broken rings etc.) Have repaired irreplaceable vintage cylinder heads.
Welding 3D Printed metal parts.
Assembly welding 3D printed metal parts.
Welding 3D printed parts to
In stainless steel, titanium, niobium, inconel.
We have been doing this very successfully for mission critical assemblies for some
