Specialized Wareplate Manufacturing
In 1996 Austral Technologies purchased and installed the largest PTA (Plasma Transferred Arc) system in the world. This piece of German ingenuity is able to deposit upto 25kg/hr of Tungsten Carbide hardfacing. Thus was born Austral Technologies SPOT60 highly wear resistant WearPlate. SPOT60 is unrivaled in abrasion resistance and used mainly in the harsh environments found in Iron Ore and Gold mining operations.
In 2015 Austral Technologies installed a second fully automatic PTA system of the same capacity and today SPOT60 is sold both in Australia and overseas.
