When you have us repair your
parts, you will benefit from over thirty years of experience. During these
years we have successfully repaired thousands of castings. This experience
is our most valuable asset. Because of the many different types of parts
we've repaired, we have the ability to interlink thousands of individual
experiences, successes and, yes, even some failures to develop methods,
techniques and processes that work the first time - every time!
Our repairmen are true metal
craftsmen. Each is a skilled machinist and welder. They are
carefully trained in the art of cast metal repair. Cast iron is our main
focus. It takes a special type of person to do this kind of work. It
can be hard, dirty and very difficult. Pride in our work is often our
greatest reward. Our intent is simple: Do the very best job
possible. Attention to details, lots of patience and excellent
metal-working abilities have been keys to our success.
We provide two very important
services with every job. Out first effort is to determine the cause of the
failure and how to prevent it from happening again. Second, we engineer
the repair to return the part to its original strength or stronger. By
asking If we could have everything we want in this repair, what would that
be? we can "reverse engineer." This approach, combined with our
experience and passion for our work, results in excellent repairs.
With more patents than any other casting repair company ever, anywhere in
the world, more ingenious devices, more understanding of cast iron, we will tell
you the truth about what can be done to provide you with the results you need.
Our latest technical breakthrough
is a totally new approach to metal stitching called CASTMASTER™. This

original strength even in the most difficult conditions. The CASTMASTER™
technology is the single most important development to date in the history of
Our newest product Full-Torque Thread repair inserts will simply solve your
thread repair problems permanently and usually better than new, we guaranty it!
