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.

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.

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.
