At the time of the repair this plant was the leading producer of aluminum and fabricated aluminum in the world. It is also the world’s largest miner of bauxite and refiner of alumina. The plant housed more than half a dozen presses and function to fabricate all kinds of aluminum products for a wide array of applications. Multiple extrusion presses had developed external cracks that required addressing; some even leaking hydraulic fluid. ECRS/Metalock aided in the machine removal and replacement bolt installations for the damaged components. The pictures show the dye inspection of the crack prior to repairs. Inspections take place afterwards as well to ensure a full leak proof repair.
