Boretech Corp. recently introduced BoreClad, a new system for weld overlaying and restorative buildup. The system is used for applications in restoring worn construction, industrial and military equipment, pit, quarry and mining processes and other parts needing rebuilding due to abrasive wear.
BoreClad uses MIG, solid or flux core weld processes along with the company’s patented step method to position weld beads inside round components. This system offers optional weld/no weld zones to accommodate keyways, and can weld mild steel and all stainless steel and nickel alloys.
The BoreClad machine has a current capacity of 200 amps at 100% duty cycle. Standard torches work within ID’s of 1.2" to 13". Custom overlay machines can be manufactured for larger workpieces.
