Primarily used as a front edge on backhoe and wheel loader buckets.
Effectively protects the undersides and ends of buckets.
Used as a front edge on light material buckets.
Grouser Bars were originally intended as repair parts for under carriage belts.
We keep a wide range of perforated base and bolt-on edges for a.o. Volvo, CAT and Komatsu machines in stock.
Primarily used as a front edge on wheel loader buckets but also on backhoe buckets.
Bucket Wear Steel
Top Notch Quality – for all wearing edges
• Hard and tough from edge to edge – maximum wear time.
• High precision in dimensions – meets tough tolerance requirements.
Systematic quality control.
• Excellent weldability properties in both 500 HB and 400 HB
weld-on edges and wear bars.
Olofsfors provides a wide range of weldable edges and bars and bolt-on edges for excavator buckets, wheel loader buckets, dump trucks, crushers, conveyors and other high wearing applications. Olofsfors steel is very hard, tough and meets the high requirements for quality tolerances of, for example, robotic welding systems. The special steel alloy and computer controlled heat treatment process that Olofsfors uses gives Olofsfors weld-on edges and bars far better wear resistance and weldability properties than common tempering steels. Olofsfors can supply a wide range of high quality 500 HB wear parts in bolt-on edges, segments and plates for most OEM bucket designs.
All machining and forming of Olofsfors wear steel is carried out before the hardening process; this makes Olofsfors steel products hard and tough from edge to edge. The production method gives wear parts with excellent performance, superior to that of wear parts made by heat impacting cutting in hardened plate material.
Olofsfors wear steel – optimal protection at the most wearing edges.
Bruxite - the new name on Olofsfors bucket steel2010-04-19
Hard work now has a name. From now on, Olofsfors wear-resistant cutting edges and bars for buckets and heavy machinery will be called Bruxite®.
