This Ohio aluminum extrusions facility produces a myriad of aluminum products of varying size, shape and alloy. ECRS/Metalock was able to provide a weld repair and stress analysis of their 4,500 ton capacity hydraulic aluminum extrusion press. Our repair called for a pre weld heat treatment and post weld heat treatments in order to stress relieve the parent and weld material using ceramic heating blankets. We always finish the surface back to its original manufactures specifications. The repair is frequently checked for new hair line cracks before, during and after the procedure.
