Harford's Technologies: Research & Development
Staying ahead of the curve and keeping pace with our client's requirements is a driving motivation at Harfords.To that end, we have embarked on several R & D Projects specifically designed to gain new techniques to produce high performance coatings that are hard, dense and inert. These techniques will have the ability to be applied to small or large components or small areas of large components, internal surfaces and complex shapes.
Laser Cladding is a process whose time has come in W.A. and Australasia. As the limits of what can be applied with this system are broadened the applications increase exponentially. Whether it is the application of a metallurgically bonded Tungsten Carbide overlay with little or no heat effect to the substrate, or the application of metallurgically bonded Triballoy® T-800 to a pump sleeve exposed to extreme wear, heat and corrosion, nothing else can provide the full intended benefit of the material being applied like laser.

Harfords are arguably the most experienced company in Australia at implementing new thermal spray and other technologies. In Laser Cladding F.W. Gartner have an enviable reputation of developing real world applications with Laser cladding in production quantities. This gives them a depth of real world knowledge directly applicable to your worst problems. When using state of the art technologies like laser cladding, a question that should always come to mind is "how much experience does my provider have with this technology?".
