Effective and efficient transport is consistently reliable. From national and international shipping, land transport, locomotives, loading and unloading vehicles and equipment; achieving reliability means limiting breakdowns of vital components.
ASCO engineering's expertise can improve resistance to wear and corrosion; also decrease the potential for breakdowns to operational vital components. Those same technologies will increase component and system performance, extend plant and machinery life, increase reliability and reduce unit operating and maintenance costs. We can also recover and remanufacture fatigued metal components and surface-engineer them for extended operational and service life in a range of challenging environments – at a fraction of the cost of a replacement OEM part.
Trends in the Automotive industry and new directives for reducing emissions means that's manufacturers are looking for new efficient solutions. Surface Technology plays a significant role in helping them to achieve their objectives.
Typical applications include:
- Synchronisers rings
- Brake discs
- Marine shafts
- Locomotive undercarriages
