4-Stroke Piston Grooves After Process

By Laser-Powder-Cladding, piston ring grooves can be restored to reduce blow pass and provide extended life cycle value.

Turbocharger Systems

Turbocharger systems typically experience a high amount of heat and wear in operation. By Laser-Powder-Cladding, clearances and efficiencies can be restored.

Damaged Crane Swivel Shaft

Crane Swivel Shaft After Process

Thread and shank portions were completely restored and successfully load tested

Worn Compressor Shaft Bearing Surface

After long usage, bearing surfaces sometimes display peeling out of previous metal spray layers

Compressor Shaft Bearing Surface After Process

Such surfaces can be restored with a fusion bond which is more durable and wear resistant

Piston Ring Groove Restoration Case

Laser-Powder-Cladding works by fusing new material onto old worn out surfaces through welding by laser. The new materials strengthen and enhance the original component to lengthen its lifespan, thereby improving overall engine efficiency at a fraction of the cost of buying a new component.

  • Groove sizes restored with
    virtually no porosity (GL reference)
  • Local damage repaired
  • Anti friction coat applied as option
