Material development

In addition to coating processes equipment, ArcX also benefits from Höganäs’ overall Material development R&D compentencies. By not only having access to our wear and corrosion testing, but also our metallographic labs, where theoretical calculations in various simulation tools such as ThermoCalc and JMatPr can be applied. Furthermore, an extensive range of state-of-the-art materials and powder testing equipment are available in-house.

Wear and corrosion lab

Hard faced components need to perform well when exposed to wear and corrosion in severe working environments. A complete prediction of wear and corrosion resistance of components in real working environments is of course not possible from results obtained under laboratory conditions.

Training and education

In recognising the importance of continuous learning and training, ArcX brings specialists from all over the world to conduct training and education in materials, processes and applications. Höganäs continues to be dedicated at organising different seminars and workshops, both at Höganäs facilities, and on site at customers and end-users.
