Congratulations on the successful installation of fully automated Twin Wire Electric Arc Spray technology. Can you tell our readers about this latest technology?
"Twin Wire Electric Arc Spray is one of several thermal spray technologies used to restore worn components. This fully automated technology, installed at our facility in LaGrange, USA, allows us to take control of the total restoration process in-house for hundreds of part numbers. Using a robotic arm, we can efficiently spray thick dense coatings of aluminum, steel, nickel, and various specialty alloys to restore various parts. In many applications, it is a suitable alternative to hexavalent chromium plating. Some of the main benefits of using this technology are that as we are streamlining our processes, we can pass on the time- and cost-saving benefits to our customers. As part of our ongoing environmental initiatives, the Twin Wire Electric Arc Spray eliminates the need for toxic chemicals used in chrome plating and uses a fraction of the energy to restore surfaces."
