Re-engineering and upgrading of wear parts

The re-engineering of wear parts demands the upmost precision to guarantee compatibility. It also requires careful consideration part’s operating conditions and wear exposure. Only then can we engineer replacement wear components that have significantly longer service lives.

Your sole contact is our mechanical engineer

We believe the best way to navigate the challenges of re-engineering is to have one single contact for the entire wear parts upgrade process. The same person that visits your site, and sees the part’s working conditions, also does the measuring, the Solidworks® drawings, and the estimates.

That same mechanical engineer reviews, along with our factory production manager, the fabrication plan and processes, and assures that the final implement of the upgrade meets all of your requirements. We have found this “single-person responsibility” method to deliver the best results on complex, detail-oriented upgrades – and our customers agree.

Wear parts that exceed OEM specifications

OEMs’ interests and considerations can be widespread: they are, understandably, trying to make parts that can work over a variety of conditions – even, in some cases, across different industries.

By comparison, our SSAB Saudi Factory is completely focused on greatly extending the service life of your wear part, under its specific working conditions, for your material’s (e.g., mineral’s) distinct wear properties. We also have deep resources, ranging from the steel experts at SSAB’s Knowledge Service Center to our international network of Hardox® Wearparts Centers – who share their application know-how as they address the world’s most challenging wear situations.
