Back to 2010

RetroTuesday is a special day to reflect on our past and celebrate how much we have grown as a company.  Today, we’re reflecting on a significant training course from January 25-29, 2010. The training course focused on metal stitching and was attended by Panagiotis Giantsis and Fotios Kapotis, among other experienced technicians. Lock-N-Stitch skilled instructor Steinar Danielsen led the training.

What is metal stitching?

What is metal stitching?

Metal stitching is a proven repair method used extensively in cast iron repairs to fix cracks and other types of damage. The technique involves aligning and securing metal pins in a stitch-like pattern to reinforce the damaged area, creating a robust and long-lasting repair. Metal stitching is particularly effective in repairing cast iron components such as engine blocks, cylinder heads, and exhaust manifolds, where welding may not be a viable option due to the risk of further cracking or distortion. The process is widely recognized as a reliable and cost-effective repair solution for cast iron components, ensuring safe and reliable operation.

A significant training course

The metal stitching training course was critical for our workshop’s personnel. It enhanced our cast metal repair and repair engineering expertise, enabling our team to undertake more complex and challenging projects. The hands-on training provided an extensive understanding of metal stitching principles, including surface preparation, tool and material use, and applying repair techniques for various damages.

Since completing this training course, our team’s work quality has consistently impressed our clients, enabling us to secure more projects. Investing in our team’s professional development has been a key priority, and we’ll continue to prioritize their growth to stay ahead of industry standards.

We extend our gratitude to Steinar Danielsen for his outstanding instruction and guidance and to our personnel for their dedication to learning and growing with INJEGOV.

Let’s celebrate this milestone and continue striving for excellence in everything we do.
