application HVOF Engineering Applications

High Velocity Oxygen Fuel (HVOF) coatings HVOF is a high energy thermal spray process which produces dense, strong coatings of cermets and metals which give excellent performance in demanding, aggressive, wear and corrosive environments. HVOF coatings are an important part of advanced surface engineering which enable us to salvage and improve components. This enables machinery […]

Coating: High Velocity Oxygen Fuelled spray coatings.

application Laser Cladding for Continuous Caster Rolls

Laser Cladding for Continuous Caster Rolls   Continuous caster rolls are used in the steel industry to cast continuous solid forms from liquid steel. The rolls are exposed to thermal fatigue, high temperatures, bending stresses, corrosion oxidation and abrasion. The standard method of protecting caster rolls is by submerged arc welding with a 400 series […]

Metallisation Launches New Laser Cladding System
application Metallisation Launches New Laser Cladding System

Metallisation has launched a new laser cladding system, MET-CLAD, which has further enhanced Metallisation’s diverse range of surface coating equipment. Laser cladding, a process that falls into the range of hard- facing solutions, can be used to increase corrosion resistance, wear resistance or impact performance of metallic components, using a method of applying a fully […]

Coating: The laser cladding process utilises a precisely focused high power laser beam to create a tightly controlled weld pool into which a metallic powder is applied.

application Arcspray reclamation of ball bearing seats on rubber coated print rollers

INTRODUCTION  The printing paper and packaging industries use a wide range of rubber coated steel rollers for applying ink, adhesive or the transportation of paper. During use the bearings at each end of the rubber coated rollers will become impregnated with ink adhesive or other types of debris causing them to seize, inducing the roller […]

application Reclamation of blanket cylinders web offset litho press

  INTRODUCTION  In the offset litho printing process, there is a requirement to use a mixture of water and ink to achieve the correct density of print. The introduction of water onto any printing process will inevitably lead to corrosion problems. The blanket cylinder is one of the main casualties of this corrosion, where the […]

application Flamespray reclamation of rudder posts

INTRODUCTION    The Shipping Industry, like any other Industry, has its share of wear problems. These are generated by the very harsh conditions of a Marine Environment; ships are sometimes at sea for months at a time with limited regular maintenance to some of the extreme areas. The rudder post which will only have limited […]
