Steel Repairs and New Part Manufacture

The CATIA V5 Cad software allows DORMAC to carry out specific repairs to components in that new parts may be “re-designed” from old (or existing parts) to suit the required repair to exact standards, thus repairs can be “custom made”. Repairs and manufacture of hydraulic pump parts are typical of this kind of application.
