Our know-how associated with our equipment to the latest technology can provide assistance anywhere in the world.
Machining, grinding and coating
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.
reduces significantly machine downtime.
