Challenge: A leading Midwestern hydraulic cylinder manufacturer was producing an order for an important customer, when the cylinder shaft was seriously damaged in final assembly. It was a rush order and the customer needed the shaft in two days. Standard repairs would require disassembly and reprocessing of the shaft which would take almost a week. They called Hadronics for help.

Solution: Hadronics had a team of technicians in the manufacturer’s shop 12 hours from the call, which was first thing the next morning. The team was able to repair the damage without disassembling the unit in about four hours, using a combination portable plating, hand working and finishing. This enabled the customer to complete the order and meet the original shipping date.
