Hardbanding is the process of laying on a coating or surface of [super-hard metal] on a [softer metal part] at a point or on an area of severe wear or abrasion – putting a hard surface on a softer metal by welding or other metallurgical process.
We offer hardbanding (hard surfacing) for your parts or products based on your specifications or requirements. Hardbanding may be a good solution if you have a unique challenge related to weight, friction, usable life, or budget. Depending upon your application you can expect multiple benefits, such as:
Longer usable life of component(s)
Reduced wear to adjacent or contact components
Allowed use of lighter weight components
Reduced cost by using less expensive primary metal
Hardfacing is a metal working process in which harder or tougher materials are applied (welded) to a base metal to increase its wear resistance. For each application and wear phenomena, there is a welding wire that is applied by various techniques (arc welding, plasma transfer arc welding, etc.). Our experienced team can help you select the best wire and application technique for your stabilizers, kick pads and bent subs.
Hard facing of sleeves and mills involves the dressing of metal surface with tungsten carbide. We conduct redressing of Stabilizer sleeves and Mills in our workshop.
