Fabrication Methods

Fastening Methods

Plug Weld Mounting

Overlay will perform best when plug weld mounting is done on the back of the plate. If there is a need to provide plug weld mounting on the front or "top" of the plate, the weld can be capped with hardfacing.

Stud Weld Fasteners

A steel stud welded to mild steel back vertical to the plate backing.

Countersunk Fasteners

Heads may be surfaced with weld to provide extra protection from washout.

Edge or Backside Weld Mounting

Because you will be welding to mild steel, no special procedures are required. In dynamic loaded structures, it is desirable to seal the mating surfaces with a weld layer (or root pass) of type 312 stainless to prevent carbides from drifting into the weld zone. Weld joints exposed to abrasive wear may be capped with appropriate hardfacing material.
