Explosion hardening

Explosion welding and hardening are a special metal forming processes which use power of explosives to create or enhance metal structures.

Explosive hardening of manganese-steel construction elements

Processing of the Hadfield’s steel by action of shock wave result in increase of both its surface and in-depth hardness. The main application is explosive hardening of cast railway crossing frogs of manganese steel.

The scope of possibilities of the explosive welding principle is not to be understood as limited to the applications outlined above. Our Research Institute offers the possibility to consult the applicability of explosive processing of metallic materials according to customer requirements.
