Suitable for automation

no fusing required
1-6 mm thickness
high velocity - excellent density


PTA (Plasma Transferred Arc) is a welding method, thus it enables a metallic bonding with the base material. It can be used both on cast iron and bronze base materials including bronze containing zinc.

PTA can be fully automated and thus once the parameters are fixed for a certain design, consistent final results are achieved for all pieces.

Deposition rate 2-12 kg/hour

Deposition thickness 1 - 6 mm

Deposition hardness  41 - 61 HRC
