When it comes to hydraulic machinery, the hydraulics themselves are not the only components that can be damaged due to wear. Over time, load-bearing bores can wear and eventually fail. Such failures are commonly repaired on-site with the use of portable bore welding and line boring tools.
Construction Equipment Line Boring
Construction equipment is among the most common hydraulic equipment to require line boring repairs. Such heavy machinery often experiences high levels of stress on bored joints that can cause them to fail. The fact that much of this equipment is often left out in the elements does not help. Once the outer coating of paint has been chipped, rust can form around key load-bearing points.
Bore welding and line boring can be used to repair breaks and enlarge and realign existing, damaged boreholes. For heavy equipment, on-site line boring is an economical repair option because it means you do not have to bring that equipment to a repair shop. On-site repairs for such equipment is often quicker, resulting in less downtime and lost revenue.
