NB Finishing Company can utilize 33 years of expertise to follow the process of applying a homogenous bond to selectively repair specific non-conforming or damaged areas without removing the component part from the assembly. The end result is a component part that meets or exceeds the performance and durability of the original OEM manufacturer part.
Repairs to steel, cast iron, aluminum, and other specialty coated surface of localized damage due to “aggressive” product removal and/or bottle-neck areas that have excessive wear.
Bearing bores, eccentric bores, and pilot bores to specification.
Local repair to various surface coatings.
Repair crankshaft outer bearing areas and flywheel fit areas within the printing press utilizing retrofit and/or matting methodologies.
Restore worn sealing surfaces and damaged areas.
Restore sealing surfaces by silver, copper, babbit, and nickel plating.
Local restoration of worn pump shafts at the bearing or sealing areas.
Restore parts to original specification and apply plating for protection from corrosion or erosion.
