Bisalloy Steels will unveil what it describes as the hardest quenched and tempered steel made in Australia on Stand 4225 at AIMEX.
According to Bisalloy Steels’ business development and strategy manager, Tom Matinca, Bisplate 600 was developed in response to requests from Australian mining companies focused on reducing operational costs.
Bisplate 600, along with the company’s full range of high tensile and abrasion-resistant quenched and tempered steel, is manufactured in an efficient continuous-flow process.
Bisalloy’s AIMEX display will also include a new low-friction Bisplate option that can handle wet and sticky ore types while offering a very low friction service, as well as a very high tensile strength steel in structural applications.
According to Bisalloy’s product applications engineer, Justin Suwart, the company’s customers no longer want to just purchase ‘any wear material at any cost as long as it is available’.
“They are looking for a fit-for-purpose wear product that provides the best return over the life of the equipment,” he said.
Bisalloy Steel’s main production facility and sales headquarters are in Wollongong, NSW, with stock facilities and sales offices in Perth and Brisbane and a sales office in Melbourne.
