Metalock process keeps Ferry business afloat

In February 2008 Metalock of Australia P/L was contracted to repair a Marine aluminium gearbox which was badly corroded, and unable to hold oil. Unit was not replaceable and welding was ruled out because of distortion. Scope of work included dismantling, machining away corroded area, manufacture of new section in special marine alloy and metalocking it into place. Both the drain plugs and filter assembly pockets were replaced / machined. Transmission was reassembled and put back in to ferry service some 6 months ago. Works completed to full satisfaction of customer in 5 days. A 2 year warranty on repair was happily given.
