Joe Macari Classics needed us to come and repair an engine block of an old Maserati 3500 GT Vignale Spyder. The engine block had 4 leaks in it and they had to be repaired without having to remove the engine block. Joe Macari and ourselves decided it was best if we used our portable laser welding machine to repair the engine block.
Laser Welding gives us better flexibility in comparison to conventional welding as we can get into tighter gaps with better accuracy and we don’t have to physically weld the material ourselves. If conventional welding was used there’d be a longer downtime as the engine block would have had to have been removed and then reinstalled after the welding process was completed.
