With Hardox 500 Abrasion Resistant Wear Plate & Chocky Bars

In this application aggregate mining and construction excavation customers contract Kendo to rebuild worn loader and excavator buckets. In this application shown, Kendo measures the radius of the bucket, makes a template, and then cuts and rolls Hardox wearplate into bucket liners which greatly extend the life of the bucket. In addition Kendo supplies Hardox Brand chocky bars and edge liners. The bores on the buckets are then inspected and weld repaired and line bored to receive new bearings. The end result is a like new bucket that will last for another round of production.
