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.
These techniques will also have the ability to be applied to our existing thermal spray coatings in order to enhance their physical properties. The micro porosity and fissures in Electrolytic Hard Chrome will be able to be filled.
Harfords are arguably the most experienced company in Australia at implementing new thermal spray and other technologies. This gives them a depth of real world knowledge directly applicable to your worst problems.
When using state of the art technologies, a question that should always come to mind is “how much experience does my provider have with this technology?”.
Working with Harfords means you get the full scope of their years of application knowledge from the outset. You can be confident with Harfords that our staff is trained with the equipment that the applications have been developed on. All staff training is carried out in our Perth facility.
