Hard facing is a metalworking process where harder or tougher material is applied to a base metal to extend the working life and improve production costs.
We use the Gas Metal Arc Welding method (G.M.A.W) Including both gas shielded and open arc welding.
Hard facing may be applied to a new component during production to increase its wear resistance, or it may be used to restore a worn down surface. Hard facing by arc welding is a surfacing operation to extend the service life of industrial components, preemptively on new components, or as part of a maintenance program.
The significant savings in machine down time and production costs has meant that this process has been adopted across many industries such as steel, mining, sugar and cement.
Almost any metal, high wear component can be hard face treated to extend its life. We use and recommend the U.T.P. Range of hard facing materials.
