HFW manufactures and reconditions shafts for various industries. Runout is usually measured mechanically with a dial indicator. In some instances, however, some customers require EMRO (electrical mechanical runout) inspection. If your shafts require EMRO inspection when manufacturing or reconditioning consider HFW Industries for your next project. With over 75 years of experience, you can trust that your parts are in the right hands.
Thermal spraying includes a variety of processes where molten material is propelled onto a substrate. The two surfaces form a mechanical bond and the substrate temperature generally remains below 300 degrees Fahrenheit so zero distortion occurs. At HFW, we are wear and corrosion prevention experts, and our thermal spray processes are at the heart of that expertise.
Hardfacing and welding overlays are at the root of our name – HFW Industries, Inc. Founded in 1947 as Hard Face Welding & Machine Co., Inc., our history and breadth of experience in hardfacing and welding is unique to HFW, and an important part of the value we offer our customers. While our capabilities have since expanded beyond these humble beginnings, they are still very much at the heart of our business.
At HFW, we continually upgrade our machining equipment to suit our customers’ needs. Recent investments in new CNC lathes, mills and other equipment have expanded our size capability.
We have more than 15 pieces of precision grinding equipment at HFW, which round out our thermal spraying, hardfacing, machining and assembly operations. Recent investments in CNC grinding equipment will help to further reduce lead time for our customers.
Our assembly area includes general assembly tooling and equipment, mechanical assembly, static balancing, dynamic balancing (capacity of 5,000 lbs.), hydrotesting, cleaning and blasting.
Let’s face it; every breakdown is an emergency. Downtime costs money – and lots of it! That’s why HFW is dedicated to being the one source facility for all your repair needs. From single component replacement to the refurbishing of complex machinery and sophisticated components, we will have you up and running quickly.
