In many applications, particularly those focused on engineering, there are certain parts and products that are designed to degrade/wear out/fail with repetitive use. This degradation is often a requirement or an unavoidable consequence of the part’s application, and as such they are expected to be repaired or replaced regularly. Unlike impingement applications, such as shot blasting, wear parts generally focus more on sliding abrasion applications where two or more surfaces are in direct contact and slide/rub against each other.
Our aim is to work alongside our customers to ensure part design and material selection are the most effective choices to maximise the lifespan of the wear parts without impacting on performance.
Our material options are generally tailored towards abrasion applications and as such we have extensive expertise in this area.
