Remanufacture worn, damaged or corroded components back to original specification with the SIFCO Process®

Remanufacture worn, damaged or corroded components back to original specification with the SIFCO Process®

Remanufacturing is one of the best options available for bringing whole life costs of capital equipment and machinery down. By using selective plating, worn, damaged or corroded components can be restored to their original specifications and offer ‘like new’ functionality.

By remanufacturing components through selective plating, not only can you extend the life of your assets, you can also save a substantial amount of money from the costs of replacement, and lower your environmental impact.

Where selective plating can be used for remanufacturing.

Selective plating can be used to remanufacture a wide range of components and applications in a variety of industries. These include:


  • Landing gear
  • Actuators
  • Turbine engines

Electric Generation and Distribution

  • Power distribution conductors
  • Transformers
  • Switch gears
  • Boards

Heavy Machinery, Mining and Off Road

  • Long Walls and Hydraulic Cylinders
  • Gears
  • Bearing journals and housings


  • Drive Motors
  • Axles

Industrial Machinery

  • Valves
  • Turbines
  • Compressors


  • Diesel engine components
  • Pistons
  • Propeller shafts

Benefits of remanufacturing with the SIFCO Process®

Restore components back to OEM requirements

  • Repair and restore critical dimensions and surface properties of worn components back to their OEM requirements.
  • Solutions such as copper, nickel, nickel-tungsten, and cobalt, can provide wear resistance, hardness properties and dimensional restoration.

Portable solutions for in-situ remanufacturing

  • Engineers can accurately focus plating onto specific areas of a component in-situ.
  • Drastically reducing downtime and minimize production delays.
  • Ideal for localized areas on inside and outside diameters or flat surfaces, selective electroplating doesn’t need extensive masking or special fixtures to plate the component.

Less machining for simpler, faster remanufacturing repairs

  • Plate to size and thickness required.
  • Less pre- and post- machining needed, leading to faster, simpler repairs that can be undertaken in as little as a day.

Lowering the environmental impact of remanufacturing

  • Selective plating generates very little wastewater in comparison to other surface coating methods like tank plating.
  • Safer for workers and environment - fewer fumes being given off and less hazardous waste to dispose of.
  • Technicians can come to you, meaning less transportation and shipping and reduced carbon footprint.
