How does it work?

Our Tungsten Carbide blend forms a wear resistant coating that is metallurgically bonded to steel rolls using laser cladding (also known as laser metal deposition).

Laser cladding offers the following process advantages:

  • Lower material costs due to thinner coatings
  • Minimal dilution and higher material hardness
  • Low heat affected zones mean less stress on your components
  • Faster than traditional processes like GTAW and MIG
  • Can repair used rolls or coat new ones!

New and used rolls can be clad with AEGIS Roll Defender.

We service:

  • Hot strip mill rolls: looper, table, pinch and guide rolls
  • Bar mill rolls: looper, pinch, guide and cooling bed rolls
  • Pickle line guide and flattener rolls
  • Pinion and line shafts
