Coating without borders in Norway: HVOF Workshop Expansion in Trio OilTec Services
Having proved consistent high quality HVOF spraying for the Oil & Gas industry in the last 15 years, demand for coating services is rising in Trio OilTec Services, the Castolin Eutectic workshop in Stavanger, Norway. A completely new setup of the HVOF cell will be launched in 3rd quarter 2014, with the newest high-tech coating technology which doubles workshop capacity, increases equipment availability and ensures even shorter lead times.
The new HVOF cell is 6m x 4,4m, allowing wearfacing of components up to 3,5m length, 500 mm diameter and 1 ton weight. Coming as an extension of the current HVOF booth where parts up to 9m length can be wear-protected, coating is now LIMITLESS in our Norwegian workshop. Synergies with the existing laser cladding machine are also provided, which means unique wear protection solutions adapted to tough North Sea challenging conditions.
Additional investment in the vertical CNC controlled machining centre (vertical mill) comes to complete the last generation setting, enabling us to provide one-stop-shop solutions in new parts production. The machine overall dimensions of 9m x 5m allow manipulation of large-scale components up to 8 tons.
