Metallizing

Metallizing was originally developed in the 1930's as an alternative repair to welding.  It can be used to build-up worn, chipped or gouged metal surfaces from as little as .001" to as much as .150".  Since it's development, advances in technology have made metallizing the method of repair.  Metallizing can be used to repair bearing or seal surfaces, contoured or flat surfaces and anything in between!

Metallizing is a highly technical process which utilizes a specially designed alloy metal (either wire or powder particles) that is shot through a combustion (oxygen, air and fuel gas) gun at a specific feed rate.  The atomized alloy particles are then discharged onto a clean, roughened surface where a mechanical and metallurgical bond will occur.

We can metallize and finish machine/grind any rotating component from 1" O.D. x 1" long up to 32" O.D. x 154" long.  We can rotate larger parts for metallizing up to 60" O.D. x 60" long.  We can also spray any flat or contoured pieces as long as it can fit in our building!  Some of the products we keep on hand are:
