MB WellClad has a proven track record in providing a specialised turnkey overlay cladding and machining service to a wide variety of clients.

The “cladding” of alloy steels with corrosion Resistant Alloys is a fully field proven process. This cladding provides a cost effective surface treatment for components used in highly aggressive services where highly corrosive, erosive or extreme wear mechanisms prevail.

Welding Processes

MB WellClad welding processes are the subject of continuous improvement through in-house research and development, aimed at yielding even further enhanced reliability and performance.

The Corrosive Resistant Alloys (CRA), hard facing materials and associated welding processes are carefully researched and developed by the company and its suppliers. The resultant techniques are also based on the latest information and data available from users in the oil and gas, petrochemical, marine, power generation, process and aerospace industries.

Welding Techniques for application of overlay include:

  • Pulsed Hot Wire TIG (GTAW)
  • Manual TIG (GTAW)
  • Sub Arc Welding
  • Electro-Slag Deposition
  • Synergic Pulsed MIG
  • Manual Metal Arc

Welding Range

MB WellClad employs the latest technology in CNC Cladding Machines (Pulsed Hot Wire TIG).

Machine slides are three metres active travel with a 3.5 metres (under Torch), vertical working envelope, over Twin Turntable Workstations. Turntables are 2.5 metres diameter, having a weight capacity of 15 tonnes.
