Glass mould industry solutions, Surface Coating
Hollow glass machine tools work under very severe conditions, subjected to both wear, corrosion and fast thermal cycling. Protective thermal surfacing with hardfacing metal powder feedstock is the recognised solution.
Increase the service life when producing new moulds, plungers, baffles, neck rings, and plates with both cast iron and bronze substrates.
Reduce cost with a new lease of life for tools returned to production after repair and maintenance.
Resistance to erosion and adhesive wear at high temperature combined with good corrosion resistance is the key to extended operating life.
