Over the years we have been called to work on a number of repair welding projects across Central Iowa and surrounding states. These have included both regularly scheduled and emergency calls for structural repairs and equipment/machinery repairs. We understand that shutdown times are extremely disruptive and costly to production, this is why we’ve put such an emphasis on expanding our mobile-welding operation.
Types of Repairs
- Incoming Water Main Pipe Burst—at a local food processing plant in Central Iowa—when pipes burst and you’re facing an indefinite shutdown in production, we’ve got your back. When a neighboring food processing plant called us at 3AM, our repair welding crew was out there, on site by 6AM, cutting new pipe to install.
- Support Angles—at a parking garage in downtown Des Moines, Iowa—parking garages are historically built like Lincoln log structures, and over time the steel and concrete start to settle and crack. We can come in and install support angles, as we’ve done dozens of times, adding an extra layer of steel to help reinforce the aging structure.
- Forklift Boom—at a concrete plant in Central Iowa—the concrete industry is notorious for the wear and tear they put their various machinery/equipment through, especially while transporting harsher products and materials. That’s why for this forklift boom (shown above), we started out by welding the crack and making sure it was smooth, before we added an extra plate on top, reinforcing the structural integrity for future use.
- Stinger on a Grain Truck—for a local feed mill in Central Iowa—the end was blown out, so we came in and carefully welded it back together. This type of repair is usually a regular fix, but this project was a bit more time sensitive because the grain truck is used to get the feed out to the farms. We understand supply chains and how that affects your business, so we work in a timely manner.
