Repairs to an 18 metre Cylinder
Client Profile: A high profile drilling contractor servicing the mining industry of Western Australia.
The Problem: Client was having difficulty sourcing a supplier with access to the appropriate materials and equipment to carry out a repair on an 18 metre hydraulic cylinder.
The Goal: To repair the 18 metre Hydraulic Cylinder as quickly and effectively as possible.

The Result: The Hydraulic Cylinder was fully rebuilt to OEM specification and provided promptly to the client, who confirmed that it's operating like a component that's fresh off the shelf, but at a highly competitive cost.
