Tungsten Carbide Coated Wear Component

Plastic Blow Mold Component

ASB Industries will assist you to help reduce production equipment downtime. Our extensive experiences and expertise allow us to quickly and accurately analyze your processing environment and evaluate the type of part repair necessary.

Identify Wear Mechanisms

The first step in reducing wear from abrasion, erosion, fretting, adhesive, cavitation and oxidation/corrosion wear mechanisms is defining the type of wear. ASB Industries studies distinct wear patterns and any unique aspects of the equipment failure, as well as substrate material properties and design aspects of the engineered part to determine the cause or causes of wear. In most cases, wear analysis identifies a combination of multiple wear mechanisms contributing to mechanical failure. We have coating solutions for all types of wear, from abrasion resistant coatings to performance coatings.

Perform Emergency Repairs and On-Site Services

ASB Industries can provide quick repairs and delivery to get you back in production with minimal downtime after component failure. We carefully analyze the component failure to determine the most appropriate material and process for repair, and use our extensive grinding and machining capabilities to put you back into production quickly with superior part performance. If your spares are limited or parts are very costly to disassemble or transport, ASB Industries can possibly bring Thermal Spray equipment to your facility for cost-effective, on-site repairs with our experienced Thermal Spray technicians.

Repair Mis-Machined Parts

Although costly mishaps and mistakes may occur during the manufacture of parts, Thermal Spray can be used to repair areas back to original dimensions. In most cases, the repaired area will exceed original design requirements.
