Dix Engineering based in the Riverland has recently expanded its capabilities and has purchased a portable line boring machine. This machine allows the Company to provide on line boring services on site, thereby reducing downtime or the necessity to dismantle equipment to be repaired.

 

 

This machine - with the skilled and experienced operators from Dix Engineering - can perform mechanical repairs on-site including:

 

  • Boring
  • Overlay welding on inside and outside surfaces
  • Drilling
  • Facing, and
  • Tapping

 

 

Repairs and restorations can be carried out on any tapered or worn out bore and return it to its original size. The machine can regenerate and rebuild housings and cylindrical cavities and delivers a high accuracy restoration for on-site repair of bores and joints of large and small equipment, eliminating the need to disassemble the equipment, reducing down time and avoiding transport to a repair shop.

 

 

Statistics show that repair time can be reduced significantly also reducing costs.

 

Advantages:

 

  • Broad range of applications
  • No transport costs
  • Shorter machining time
  • Less labour costs
  • Safe, reliable performance
