Do you know if you need Weld Overlay or Cladding?

Corrosion or abrasion is an issue in many heavy-duty, industrial metalworking sectors. If you have identified areas that are at risk from wear, the weld cladding process could benefit you.

Weld Cladding Applications.

Weld overlay cladding adds protection to metals under stress and in extreme environments. Components exposed to corrosion need more protection by weld cladding or weld overlay.

These include:

  • Heavy machinery used for excavation
  • Valves on oil and gas pipelines
  • Pressure vessels and shells

Difference between Weld Overlay and Cladding.

The cladding welding process is applying a different, tougher material to the base metal. Weld Overlay you apply wear-resistant materials with similar properties onto the existing component.

There are also differences in application.

Weld Cladding.

Weld Cladding is a cost-effective way to enhance a material's surface properties.  The weld cladding process saves on materials needed for the base layer composition.

Weld cladding is typically between 2 and about 20 mm thick.

It is applied using a variety of welding processes. These include:

  • Heavy machinery used for excavation
  • Valves on oil and gas pipelines
  • Pressure vessels and shells

Weld Overlay.

Weld overlay is a type of cladding, but the added material differs.

The base material is enhanced by overlay welding alloys/metals with related attributes.

Both processes add protection on the base material from wear or corrosive elements.

Types of welding processes used for weld overlay include:

Ensure to choose a compatible material in which to overlay to avoid further failure.

Weld Overlay Cladding Equipment.

Being specialised equipment, weld cladding systems are only available from selected manufacturers Worldwide. 

Designed for the demanding environments of the oil, gas and nuclear industries.

We have been supplying used units in the UK, Middle East and Far East. 

A Fronius cladding machine is one of the best investments to make. We would also recommend PEC (Power Electronics & Controls). Both have excellent research, technicians and engineers to develop their solutions.

We also have the expertise to support any used automatic welding systems we sell.

Pipe Weld Cladding.

Pipe Cladding is the procedure to protect internal piping. Particularly from high-pressure corrosive fluids, through specialist weld overlay pipe cladding.

It prevents corrosion and damage to pipe systems. Thus, avoiding potential repair and replacement issues.

Advantages of Weld Cladding.

Weld cladding increases the lifespan of critical metal components. Protecting the internal and external surfaces.

Providing cost savings through reduced downtime and maintenance costs.

Weld Overlay vs Cladding.

The economics of weld cladding vs weld overlay depends on the unit cost. This article from ArcEng training and engineering offers an insight to whether weld cladding is right for you.

More in-depth information on cladding weld overlay is available from the TWI. Worldwide resource for research and development of welding and joining.
