Improved wear-resistance with hard facing
Hard facing is applied to parts that are subject to heavy abrasive wear. For example, in the mining industry, hard facing is used to protect products that convey ore.
Products welded using conventional materials have to be serviced and replaced often if they are subjected to heavy wear. If the production and installation of a new product can be avoided, the customer saves both costs and time.
Hard facing can also be applied to heavy-wear areas in products that were originally welded using conventional materials. Hard facing can be applied on the spot or at our machine shop if the product can be easily detached.
Simetek has applied hard facing in the manufacture and repair of various kinds of mining process equipment. The method is widely applied to heavy-wear products used in the forest industry as well.
