Bonal Technologies at Fabtech Show - Booth 39015

Posted by Gregory Merritt on Tue, Oct 27, 2009 @ 12:10 PM

Bonal's Meta-Lax® and PPAW® are on display at the show as well as a live demonstration of Meta-Lax®.

Pulse Puddle Arc Welding® (PPAW®) creates a pulsating weld puddle while metal is deposited. PPAW® pulsates the element's "base metal" as the molten metal deposits instead of pulsating the "current". On display will be the Model 5000 system enabling fabricators to prevent up to 95 percent of normal weld distortion while providing up to 400 percent longer lasting weldments in service.

Meta-Lax® relieves thermal stress within metal components by using nondestructive, highly efficient subharmonic vibrations to prevent distortion and cracking. This process meets the quality standards of thermal stress relieving techniques without the heat-treat side effects. Time and energy are saved using the Meta-Lax® method.

PPAW Equipment Controls Weld Distortion

On display will be the Model 2700-CC computerized Meta-Lax system enabling machine and fabricating shops to drastically reduce stress relief time and costs up to 95 percent.

Why NOW is the Perfect Time to Invest in the Meta-Lax Stress Relief Technology!

Posted by Gregory Merritt on Tue, Oct 13, 2009 @ 10:10 AM

Important Update:
Meta-Lax technology can help you get out of the recession quicker and achieve higher profits later. The patented Meta-Lax stress relief process is as CONSISTENTLY EFFECTIVE as thermal stress relief yet Meta-Lax is about 5-10% of the cost, about eight times faster, and an in-house operation.Meta-Lax Instead of Thermal Stress Relief Saving 90% of the Cost.

Why It Makes Sense to Invest in Meta-Lax Now!

1. Quoting Edge/Saving Money.  It's a fact using Meta-Lax instead of thermal stress relief results in a typical savings of 60-95% based on eliminating treatment costs, along with other costs like trucking and straightening. You can pocket these savings, or lower the price of your quote which should win you more business.

2. Keep jobs in-house/Start a Service Business.  Keep YOUR staff busy with your work. Usually you can accomplish all your stress relief needs with your current staff without adding time to their schedule. This avoids layoffs. You could also easily expand your business by offering a new while-you-wait or on-site stress relief service.
Meta-Lax Stress Relief, as good or better than Thermal Stress Relief
3. BECOME RECESSION RESISTANT.  It's a fact that Bonal customers tend to be the last to go down in a recession and the first to come out of it. That's the priceless Meta-Lax advantage!

Bonal has three product lines utilizing Meta-Lax technology ranging in price from $118-678/month. Find out more at these useful links:

Repair Your Mining Equipment On-Site

Posted by Gregory Merritt on Thu, Sep 10, 2009 @ 13:09 PM

This posting is to let you know how easy it is to do weld repairs of your mining equipment right on-site in the field. Save time, save money and improve quality.

Here's How: By applying sub-harmonic vibrations during welding (from the portable Meta-Lax equipment) the weld metal packs down during solidification. Grain refinement and crack resistant welds result. 

Shovel and Boom

The ability to make extensive weld repairs on-site without taking the part back to the shop is now possible for two reasons. First, by using the patented Meta-Lax sub-harmonic vibration process during welding, weld quality is improved due to grain refinement and lower porosity.

This means that extensive weld repairs can be made on-site and usually without disassembly.  Second, the Meta-Lax equipment is extremely portable and only needs 110v electricity from a generator. Why bother taking time to transport parts to the shop when the solution can come to the part?

Who Uses This: Kinross Gold, Kennecott, Caterpillar, Cerrejon Coal, Holt CAT, Empire Bucket, Coteau Properties, Bucyrus, Corrosion Engineering, Trapper Mining, Recolsa, Kimball Equipment.

Call us now and we'll show you how to get your mining equipment repaired on-site.
