To prevent all these negative situations, joining points of wear plates should be coated with a weld metal that provides the same wear resistance.
In wear plates mountings, bolt systems might be necessary for fastening - fixing instead of welded connection due to construction requirements.
Measurement of weld metal hardness is a prior&necessary criteria for understanding wear resistance and mechanical resistance of wear plate.
Wear plates are abrasion resistant composite steel plates manufactured by hardfacing on different types of base materials.
Wear plates can not be cut with oxy-gas methods due to high carbide content. These plates must be cut with plasma or laser cutting methods.
Cored wires are softer than solid wire. Due to this difference, rollers in wire feed system are different from rolls in gas metal arc welding.
Flux cored wires are welding wires manufactured by filling a steel strip in pipe form with various chemical compounds (core).
