Modernization of equipment at Ivano-Frankivsk valve plant

With purpose to increase labor productivity and optimize production processes it had been purchased and started the operation of system for plasma-powder surfacing Starweld PTA 350. Producer of equipment is Hettiger Stellite GmbH (Germany).


The system shall be used for performing high hardness surfacing of valves. The system allows to perform surfacing of details of different diameters and of any configuration. Modern and highly-technological equipment with automatic control system assures high quality of the performed works. Important parameter is hardness of surfacing which ranges from 41,5 to 54 HRC. One more important advantage of using the system in production process is not big area for mechanical treatment which allows using raw materials in a rational way. As result, finished good surfaced with this system is characterized with stable hardness and quality.
