Advantages of PANZERCROM® Add-In Process
Avoided dilution and independently increased / decreased alloys enables PANZERCROM® Wear Plates to have homogeneous microstructure sectionally of the cladding thickhness.
Less Energy Input
One of the most important advantage of this process is less energy is required for the fusion penetration. Less energy input reduces penetration and lower (not weak) penetration has some other further advantages.
Increased and Homogeneous Hardness
Hardness can be easliy controlled with Add-in process and PANZERCROM® Wear Plates are produced and delivered by avarage sectional hardness of the cladding but not the surface hardness
The biggest disadvantage of conventionally produces wear plates (metal-arc, submerged arc, cored wire) is dilution with the backing base material of the wear plate. As for less energy input is required with Add-in process the dilution (loss of alloy elements) reduced dramaticly and proportion of carbide forming
Smooth Cladding Surface
This technique allows us to get a very smooth surface especially between the welding beads which are generally accepted as the most weak area of the wear plates and increase the service life.
Easy Cold Forming
With perfectly stable and controlled production parameters of Add-in process it enables us or end user to bend PANZERCROM® Wear plates easily to 240 mm radius for 5+3 wear plates.
