Portable line boring

On-site portable line boring

Line boring is a common technique used on large structures such as harbour cranes. It is a
machining technique used to enlarge an existing hole. A hole may be
worn-out for example, making that part of the crane non-functional. We can carry out this kind of work while modernising or repairing the harbour crane.

Line boring using a unique welding method

In cooperation with welding engineers, Liftcom has developed a welding method that allows welding up shaft holes with a welding robot in outdoor locations without using mixed gas. A major advantage over electrodes is that welding in can be performed faster, better and smoother. Moreover, weather influences, such as wind and rain, play a smaller role when using this welding method.

We can apply the following line boring techniques:
