Steel Coated Face of Aluminum Clutch Disc

Steel Coating - Aluminum Disk Face

Problem:

Premature wear on contact surface of cast aluminum clutch disc previously made from cast iron; traditionally fastened wear ring requires rivet assembly and fails in service.

Solution:

Apply wear resistant steel coating to contact surface for long life, durability to withstand aggressive environment, provide reliable operation while taking advantage of the light weight aluminum.

Results:

A successful re-design of heavy cast iron assembly with lightweight aluminum parts using a thermal sprayed coating to enhance critical wear surface. The coating has excellent bonding, heat transfer, and component integrity.

Value Statement:

Lighter weight component to save vehicle fuel costs, less costly manufacturing process of die casting, very reliable product with less subcomponents and assembly operations. Precision Coatings helped improve the overall product design and continues to provide reliable high volume production, quality, and on-time delivery.
