Therefore, all industries greatly value any increase of the service life of the equipment.
Surface technologies of the newest standards, e.g. for hardfacing by welding, can achieve impressive economic and technological results. Workpieces of different sizes and shapes can be treated with different coating techniques and alloys.
One example of extreme wear risk is screening of aggregates when processing raw iron ore in the steel industry (the sinter preparation). In this process, the components in the production plants are subjected to extremely high strains.
