Metalock Railways

We also provide an engine block reconditioning programme to the most prominent railway companies in Africa. Included in this service is an optical alignment measurement to determine which bearing pockets require refurbishing utilising our High Technology welding process and subsequent line boring on 8, 10, 12 and 16 cylinder engine blocks.

We also repair the mating faces and refurbish the threaded holes in the engine blocks. Other repairs specific to the condition of the engine block are undertaken to the customer’s specification, i.e: oil feeder pipes, side wall damage, cam shaft seats and grooves, etc.

These electro-motive GM locomotive engine blocks are utilised in trains sub-Saharan Africa and run smoothly and efficiently after reconditioning.
