Of all hardfacing applications, tool-and-die repairs are one of the most metallurgically challenging. What makes it so challenging is the metallurgy of the base materials and their compatibility with the hardfacing products, as well as the post-weld heat treatments required.
The patent-pending Weld Mold RC-17 Fly-By-Wire welding process enables operators to perform totally remote floodwelding from the safety of a temperature-controlled environment while maintaining total control of the welding operation and long-established best welding procedures.
