MarineShaft is sharing its latest two repair cases with you, where we used our welding techniques: laser cladding and micro welding.
Repair of thruster seal flange by laser cladding
We used our laser cladding equipment for the repair and rebuilding of nine thruster
Laser cladding leaves minimal heat input and requires no post-weld heat treatment. The material applied melts into the base material.
After laser cladding, we re-machined the welded area to its original size.
A unique technique to restore and prolong the life circle of a product.
Micro welding of scratches inside a rudder blade cone
Who’s inside the cockpit? Our welding specialist Johnny is inside this rudder blade, carrying out micro welding of scratches inside the rudder blade cone.
With low punctual micro welding, we can repair scratches.
Our equipment is portable, and we can carry out micro welding onsite, inside, with a narrow working space.
Using micro welding a final machining is not required. A regular hand polish will do the job. Our micro welding technique is, of course, class-approved
Real People proud to deliver best-in-class repairs
No success without skilled and committed employees.
