At Direct Engineering, we specialize in spiral welding as a method to repair and recover damaged shafts and motor pumps of various sizes.
This service is one of our fastest-growing in-house offerings, and we are proud to deliver high-quality, reliable repairs that improve the mechanical strength of components and extend their lifespan.
How Spiral Welding Works
Spiral welding involves the use of synchronized rotators matched specifically to the weld head, enabling precise and consistent application of weld material in a spiral pattern around the shaft or component. This process not only repairs damaged areas but also reinforces the entire component, enhancing its mechanical strength.
Chemical Analysis for Perfect Match
To ensure the optimal bonding and performance of the repair, we conduct a chemical analysis of the parent metal of the damaged component. We then select a weld material that matches the parent metal’s chemical composition, ensuring the repaired part exhibits similar mechanical properties and performance characteristics.
Benefits of Spiral Welding
- Cost Savings: Spiral welding offers a cost-effective alternative to purchasing new components, which can be particularly expensive or difficult to find for older machinery.
- Extending Equipment Life: The spiral welding process not only repairs damaged parts but also enhances their mechanical strength, giving them a new lease on life and preventing costly downtime.
- Obsolete Equipment Recovery: In cases where new components are no longer available on the market, spiral welding provides a solution to keep machinery and equipment running without the need for expensive system redesigns.
