Grinding on a Yankee cylinder

Whether the profile of the Yankee is straight or curved, Pikosasur can machine, grind and coat the cylinders on site.
In May 2012, Pikoasur  invested on an HP HVAF M3 to make ‘in situ’ coatings of tungsten carbide or chromium carbide.

Features of the coatings:

  • Wear resistance (designed to be doctored)
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Final roughness after polishing, Ra < 0.1µm.

The HP HVAF M3 installation spraying up to 30Kg/h (FYI : a HVOF sprays  3,5Kg/h) makes coatings over large areas in a short time. This
reduces significantly machine downtime.
