This aluminum manufacturer is a world-renowned producer of fabricated aluminum products for aerospace, automotive, and general engineering. The Virginia subsidiaries main extrusion press was a 4,000 ton extrusion press. The hydraulic cylinder of the press was cracked and leaking hydraulic fluid. ECRS/Metalock installed reinforcement bolts three hundred and sixty degrees around the cylinder face in order to repair the leaking crack. This solution was to accommodate the request of the customer that no welding be done on the press. Our team was able to provide a quality repair that has performed exceedingly well and satisfied the constraints of the client.
