Between earth-shattering loads and brutal cold temperatures, mining can be tough on equipment. But with MTI’s unique friction welding process, your crews can spend more time out in the field and less time in the repair shop.See How We Do It
WHY FRICTION WELDING FOR MINING?
A STRESS-FREE SUPERIOR JOINT
With friction welding, the materials never melt. Instead, they plasticize and create a more durable bond than what’s produced with brazing.
ADDED PROTECTION FOR MINING EQUIPMENT
Grader edges, tertiary sizers – you name it, friction welding can likely help protect it. Anything that touches the ground could see improvements with our process.
REDUCE YOUR REPAIR COSTS
Added protection for your mining equipment translates to less downtime, allowing your crews to maximize their efficiency.
HOW WE’VE HELPED THE MINING INDUSTRY
