Our Metalock Engineering Group has served the global pressing and forging industries for decades and have a wealth of experience in all types of press repairs:
To meet production targets, you must have maximum machinery availability.
Production can take its toll in this type of manufacturing and slide-ways bolsters and platens can become worn, fretted and cracked, caused by vibration and the constant operation.
The removal, transportation, refurbishment, and re-installation of the press, combined with the downtime and lost production, it's just not an option.
Let the Metalock Engineering Group help you.
We work on all types of presses owned by many of the major manufacturers including Ball Corp, Crown, Carnaud, Minster, General Motors, Nissan, Jaguar Land Rover, Sheffield Forgemasters, Arconic and Doncasters.
OEMs: Clearing Schuler, Hitachi Zosen, Aida Bliss, Danley, Wilkins & Mitchell, Massey, Fagor and Cowlishaw & Walker.
Metalock has grinding machines specifically designed for the re-grinding of press lower bolster faces and if required, we can also invert the grinding machine and re-grind the upper platen face if required. In addition, we have milling equipment that can cut new or refurbish old T slots.
