If your organisation would like to operate its own hardfacing workshop, the Cutting and Wear team can help. We can supply all the main equipment to ensure you have a well-stocked, smooth running process. If you’re going to enter the world of hardfacing, you might as well do it alongside the best!

Our range of equipment ensures that you have all you need for each stage; heaters designed to get tools to the right temperature, measuring devices to enable accurate readings, adaptable workstations and user friendly water coolers. We even supply a directory of accessories, allowing you to commence hardfacing as soon as possible rather than having to shop around to complete your workshop.

3 Point Micrometers

3-point micrometers enable direct measurements of stabilizers and similar tri-bladed equipment and tools. Our 3 point micrometers provide fast and accurate measurements of the OD and range from 3″ to 18″ in 1″ increments. With lightweight frames they are easy to use and eliminate the need to hoist up one end of the tool being measured. The come in a case, fully calibrated and ready to use.

Silver Dragon Bore Heaters

The Silver Dragon Bore Heater is designed to efficiently pre-heat, maintain and provide post-heat soak of large through bored components such as stabilisers. When welding or hard facing low alloy steels it is essential to pre-heat the metal to prevent hardened zones that might lead to cracking. The built-in timer enables the start of the heating time to be set.


Our workstations are designed to assist in the hardfacing of stabilisers by rotating the tool during hardfacing therefore easing the use of application for the user. Workstations are available in both manual and powered options.

Water Cooling Unit

Our water cooling unit is used when hardfacing non-magnetic components to help prevent inserts lifting from the tool surface when the material contracts after heating. The cooler unit fills the bore of the tool to maintain a constant temperature throughout the material resulting in less expansion and contraction.

Spares and Accessories

We can offer a wide range of other workshop tools and equipment, such as brazing torch kits, propane torches, and heat shields as well as PPE such as helmets, visors, and aluminised aprons. If you need assistance in finding an item, please get in touch with our sales team, providing your details and the item you require, we have a wide range of suppliers from which we can source a variety of equipment.
