This type of plate has a thickness of specifically designed with high strength wear resistant material formed by a special deposition welding method over laying mild carbon steel.
Due to its material composition and wear resistant characteristics it has gained immediate attention in number of industries such as highly abrasive (wear) conveyor and screw press type industries.
Helix Flight have been trialling forming of this material on our HF1 medium diameter machine to validate acceptable ratios on pitch to bore size, and forming behaviour in relation to true helical shape.
We see this as an opportunity for our Helix Flight machine owners to tackle certain niche markets eliminating the process of hard facing.
