Oerlikon Metco is the technology leader for high-performance solutions for a variety of mining applications. Our patented state-of-the-art computational metallurgy process allows us to develop new materials that meet and exceed performance and cost targets for mining’s most demanding applications.

Reduce Operational and Fuel Costs with Accessible Hardfacing Material Solutions

Extended Service Life, Reduced Cost

Our customers have access to high performance technology, processes and materials that extend component service life while reducing operational cost and fuel usage. Oerlikon Metco does that by increasing uptime with leading edge coatings on mining equipment — applied using thermal spray, GMAW welded overlays, Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA) and laser cladding technologies.  Working together with customers throughout the world as an industry partner, using innovative technology to provide performance and true value to operations.

Patented Scoperta™ Computational Alloy Development

Among Oerlikon Metco's many other solutions and material products for mining, we also develop breakthrough materials using our patented Scoperta computational alloy development process. These materials perform equal to or better then costly tungsten (WC) solutions. Some of our technology is designed to be used with readily accessible GMAW (MIG) welding equipment, allowing mines to perform their own work.
