Portable Line Boring

Portable Line boring is an on-location welding/machining process to repair bores that have been worn out, oversized or irregular shaped.  We are able to build up the inside diameter of the bore with a robotic welding system and machine back to OEM specs.  Once finished, the bore will have a slip fit or press fit to accept new bushing or pins.  The process can be done vertical or horizontal in your shop, on job site, or at our shop.
