Investment Casting for Bucket Protection Wear Parts

Bucket Protection

bucket protectionWear Protection plays an important role in the mining industry, protecting the most important parts of earth moving and construction equipment buckets, providing additional protection in the toughest conditions.

Besides bucket teeth & adapaters, investment casting can also makes replacement wear parts for excavator and loader buckets include Sidebar Mounts, Corner Guards, Lip Shrouds, Heel Blocks, Wear Plates and Sidebar Protectors, which all assist in protecting and extending the life of the bucket.

Of course, all wear protection by investment casting is available in light duty through to heavy duty, to suit all types of OEM earth moving and construction equipments.

Why Investment Casting?

  • Investment casting is a custom process for various metal castings. This metal forming technique can produce all kinds of bucket protection wear parts with high quality alloy steel. And the heat treatment will help to strengthen the wear resistance, then to protect bucket from fast wear.
  • To keep normal working of excavator and loader buckets, these bucket protection wear parts need to be replaced on a regular basis. So cost of such bucket protection wear parts must be low. Investment casting is an economical production process. No matter small or large batch order, this process is all feasible.
  • Bucket projection wear parts will be assembled to the buckets, so the dimensional tolerances should be as accurate as possible. Investment casting can offer most precision dimensions for its advantages. When working, we do not need to worry about these wear parts will fall off.
  • Besides heel blocks, side cutters, wing shrouds, and lip shrouds, investment casting is available for other designed bucket protection wear parts.

Main Bucket Protection Wear Parts in Investment Casting:
