Electric Arc Spraying Services
You can extend the life of your metal parts with electric arc spraying services from Empire Precision Machining (EPM). Over time, movable metal parts wear out. If neglected long enough, they can cause costly equipment failures. A simple, cost-effective maintenance procedure, electric arc spraying resurfaces your parts with a durable metal coating, effectively re-setting the clock on their operational life.
We perform all work in-house, allowing us to offer the fastest lead times on all repairs and maintenance work. Our consultants can help you develop a maintenance schedule including electric arc spraying services that will allow you to get the most out of your equipment.
We begin the electric arc spraying process with an aggressive grit blasting of the worn item, removing all oxidized, fissured or otherwise damaged surface, giving us a clean slate to work from. Next, we apply a metal covering with an electric arc sprayer — this gives us maximum coverage for quick repairs, while allowing for a wide range of thickness options. Once the part has been re-surfaced, it is machined back to the factory specifications.
To confirm the integrity of the re-surfaced part, we can use a Magnaflux inspection machine that provides true non-destructive testing (NDT). Because we employ leading-edge technologies, our refinished parts often exceed the original manufacturer's tolerances for hardness and corrosion resistance, meaning you'll get even more use out of the item than you would if you had bought a replacement from the factory.
Any wearable part that requires hardness and corrosion resistance is a candidate for electric arc spraying. The process is frequently used on components such as:
- Chromed cylinder rods
- Stainless steel pins
- Strut rods
- Rotating shafts
