The Metalock Process

The Metalock process step-by-step.

The Metalock process is accepted as the method of repairing all cracked, broken and damaged castings in Cast Iron, Aluminium and Steel for a wide range of industries in a multitude of applications.

The repair consists of peening into prepared apertures layers of Metalock keys. The keys are formed into a multi-dumbell shape from special nickle alloys. Being highly ductile they can be peened into a metal-to-metal condition and become almost integral with the parent metal of the component under repair. Metalock keys are manufactured in a variety of sizes to suit each individual job. The high strength of the Metalock keys ensures the return of a high percentage of the original strength.

The advantages of the Metalock repair are that no heat stresses are introduced, no distortion occurs and in many instances machining is unnecessary. It is invaluable in emergency situations, reduces downtime and avoids the replacement of expensive castings.

Repairs can be carried out in-situ or in our workshops.  

Casting Repairs - Anytime - Anywhere

In many cases, casting repairs can be carried out on site, eliminating the need to remove the damaged equipment from its working position for transportation to a workshop - an expensive process. If the customer prefers, smaller equipment items can be removed to our workshop for repairs.

We are on call 24 hours a day - 7 days a week with technicians available at short notice to travel anywhere. We are organised to provide a rapid response service to deal with emergency breakdowns 365 days of the year.
