Hardfacing is a specialized process used to apply a wear-resistant layer of metal onto a surface, enhancing its durability and resistance to abrasion, impact, and other forms of wear. K999 Engineering excels in delivering this service to customers through their expertise in selecting the appropriate hardfacing materials and techniques, ensuring precise application that extends the lifespan and performance of critical components in various industries.

We employ a variety of advanced welding techniques to accomplish our hardfacing expertise:

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW):

Commonly known as stick welding, this method employs a coated electrode to generate an arc between the electrode and the base metal. The resulting heat melts both the electrode and the base metal, forming a weld pool into which the hardfacing filler material is introduced.

Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW):

Referred to as MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding, GMAW utilizes a continuous wire electrode and shielding gas to safeguard the welding area from atmospheric contamination. Flux-Cored Arc Welding (FCAW): Resembling GMAW, this process incorporates a tubular electrode filled with flux, potentially including the hardfacing material.

Submerged Arc Welding (SAW):

SAW engages a perpetually fed electrode beneath a layer of granular flux, engendering a submerged arc that melds the base metal and filler material.

K999 Engineering & Construction’s hardfacing services find applications across a vast spectrum of industries. From mining and construction to agriculture, oil and gas, and manufacturing, our expertise is harnessed to fortify components like mining equipment parts, agricultural machinery, drill bits, valves, piping, and more. These components, exposed to the elements of wear and tear, experience newfound durability through our hardfacing solutions.
