Founded in 1984, Weartech has established a highly-respected reputation as a trusted specialist supplier of welding, thermal spray and other specialty products. 

Weartech offers a comprehensive range of products for the use in wear, corrosion and hard-facing applications as well as maintenance and fabrication.

Part of the Weartech range is the supply of specialist laser cladding equipment. New laser cladding technologies allow for the manufacture of metal components, such as low-wear brake discs, with a significant reduction in fine dust emissions. The powdered coating material is blown onto the workpiece and then melted by laser, so that it bonds metallurgically with the base material. This method creates more stable protective layers than hard chromium plating and new technologies have vastly increased the process speed and greatly reduced the thickness of the layers, with extremely thin layers of about 80 μm made possible. 

The advantages of laser-coated brake discs are corrosion- and abrasion-resistant surfaces, reduced brake dust load and extended service life. Laser-coated brake discs are not only suitable for current combustion engines, however, they will also be used in future electric vehicles, where brake discs will be required to meet specific standards for low particulate emissions.

Modern lasers can be used for a wide array of coating applications, including:

• Remanufacturing/repair welding

• Wear and corrosion protection

• 3-D printing or additive manufacturing

• Surface enhancement

• Coating of boiler tubes

• Coating of components in the oil and gas industry 

With three divisions operating nationwide, Weartech offers a wide variety of products which complement each other in the industries the company serves. The extensive product range allows Weartech to offer customers single-supplier simplicity. Weartech’s team of highly experienced staff recommend the products best suited to meet every customer’s individual needs and Weartech’s skilled technicians offer in-house and on-site service, training and repairs.
