Our Heritage in Cast Chains is evolving and improving through consistent Research and Development, new technology, processes and quality control.
Here, we are hard face welding to a large cast manganese drag chain for a US cement plant. This is all done robotically to ensure consistency of the weld and depth. The majority do this by hand which is inconsistent and messy! The other factor is that inconsistent welds cause the link to not lie flat and causes unequal wear on the floor of the conveyor and link itself. Inconsistent weld penetration that will occur naturally by hand, will result in issues with surface hardness and potential premature failure.
If you want the best quality you need to go with John King.
Long Love the King!
