Our Sulzer Metco thermal spray system can repair worn and damaged areas on metal surfaces such as shafts. It is particularly effective at repairing worn bearing fits, and sealing surfaces which are routinely worn in service.
Our metallizing system uses metals in the form of powders
Base metals need only minimal preparation before metallizing
The Powder is melted in oxy-fuel combustion and propelled at high velocity onto the work piece.
The built up coating can machined to size.
Parts do not suffer heat distortion usually associated with other welding process.
Most parts that are worn, pitted or corroded can be restored to original size.
Parts will not suffer from distortion usually associated with welding processes
Damaged areas that cannot be repaired by sleeving or shaft replacement can be repaired by metallizing.
Parts can be repaired in substantially less time than other surface repair/replace methods.
Parts that were previously discarded as unrepairable can be restored to use.
