Joined up thinking
Metal joining includes specialised processes such as electron beam welding, vacuum and honeycomb brazing; complex operations requiring a fusion of expertise and technology.Materials can also be joined via HIP diffusion bonding of solid to solid or solid to powder material, to produce a bi-metallic component with premium material properties on selected surfaces.
Specialised coatings are used extensively to prolong the working life of components and protect them from environmental factors such as corrosion and abrasion. The range of coatings available from Bodycote covers a wide variety of applications, providing solutions for manufacturers in virtually every market sector.
Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) combines very high temperature and pressure to eliminate porosity in castings and consolidate encapsulated powders to give fully dense materials. Dissimilar materials can be bonded together to manufacture unique, value-added components.With the largest operational capacity in the Western world, and a wide variety of sizes of equipment, Bodycote is able to accommodate large volumes of small product as economically as large individual components.
