Hard-facing is commonly used to prolong the life of earth-moving equipment as well as being used to repair equipment components. By applying a harder material on top of the parent metal, it extends the life of the component which in turn saves maintenance costs and downtime. The hard-facing process also provides a means to help metals avoid corrosion and rusting, as well as deterioration through wear and tear.

Industries using the hard-facing process include, but are not limited to farming, construction, manufacturing, agriculture and earth-moving.

Drilling tips, ground-engaging equipment, feed mixer knives (pictured above), power blades and ripper boots are just an example of equipment that is subjected to the hard-facing process.

A wide range of equipment can be used to provide a hard-face to a component: Tungsten Feeding, Arc Spray, Flame Spray, Laser Cladding, Puddle (Powder) Torch, HVOF and HVAF Systems.
