In the steel and foundry business, you run your equipment in dusty, abrasive environments that cause exceptionally rapid component wear. The very large components you use in your processes are exposed to heavy mechanical and thermal shock.
Because of these kinds of challenges, virtually every top steel producing facility and foundry in the Midwest has called on BMR Group to help overcome the severe wear problems they face every day. We repair large, critical parts and toughen up the wear surfaces with thermal-sprayed coatings or laser hardening, making them last far longer than OEM components.
If you produce steel coils, you know the surface of the take-up mandrel is critical for ensuring proper feed, tension, and coiling. And you’ll be glad to learn that we have several different technologies to ensure the surface is exactly what you need for the type of steel you’re producing. For some applications, you’ll want laser-hardened surface to stand up to rough roll edges; or you may want an aggressive texture to grip the end roll tightly; or a very smooth surface to prevent damage to the coil.
Whatever your requirements, BMR Group has the ability to apply textured surfaces on these take-up mandrels to ensure the proper grip for the type of steel you are producing. But more than that, we can certify the exact roughness of textured surfaces with an accuracy of 0.00001 inch, using our laser optic surface measurement system.
If you’re in the foundry business, you know the mixture of jolt tables, eccentric shafts, and rapping tables create some of the toughest wear challenges of any industry in America. So you’ll be glad to learn that many foundries are relying on us to improve the performance and life of these critical components.
That kind of success makes it easy to call 260-635-2195 and ask BMR Group to help you keep your production components operating the way they were designed to operate.
