The customer was also able to benefit from the support of our local technical experts at Welding Alloys Thailand with the ultimate goal of reducing prolonged shutdown periods and extending the lifetime of their waste shredder. Upon a complete assessment of the shredder, blades, processes and working environment Welding Alloys determined that the choice of wire would be fundamental in ensuring the ongoing efficiency of the waste shredder.
Finally, Welding Alloys Thailand proposed that the optimum solution would be to repair the shredder blades in one of our own local Integra™ welding services workshops using a specially developed, seamless cored wire. It was agreed that the shredder would be dismantled and transported to our workshop for the blades to undergo repair and for Welding Alloys to provide training for the customers’ technical team to enable them to carry out future repairs.
The final product selected for the job was our seamless copper coated tubular wire from our Robodur range of consumables, that offers a hardness of over 60 HRC and a crack-free weld deposit as a result of the low diffusible hydrogen content.
