ArcX: surface coating
Your starting point for innovation
ArcX – Comprehensive technical support for surface coating applications
Expertise at your service
Expert know-how in materials, surface welding and flame spraying processes and customer applications make our four technology centres an exclusive resource in your work to optimise existing applications and develop new business opportunities.
ArcX world wide
Our technology centres are strategically located geographically and able to serve customers all over the world. We are setup to support you, in close cooperation, on a global scale, sharing our expert know-how in materials, processes and customer applications.
In addition to coating processes equipment, ArcX also benefits from Höganäs’ overall material development R&D compentencies. By not only having access to our wear and corrosion testing, but also our metallographic labs, where theoretical calculations in various simulation tools such as ThermoCalc and JMatPr can be applied. Furthermore, an extensive range of state-of-the-art materials and powder testing equipment are available in-house.
Wear and corrosion lab
Hard faced components need to perform well when exposed to wear and corrosion in severe working environments. A complete prediction of wear and corrosion resistance of components in real working environments is of course not possible from results obtained under laboratory conditions.
Training and education
In recognising the importance of continuous learning and training, ArcX brings specialists from all over the world to conduct training and education in materials, processes and applications. Höganäs continues to be dedicated at organising different seminars and workshops, both at Höganäs facilities, and on site at customers and end-users.
