Metallising is suitable both for the reclamation of worn parts and for the application of a protective metal coating. In this very brief article, a worn shaft is used as an example. The deposition of the metal is carried out by means of a metallising gun, in which the metal is fed in the form of wire into the tip of an oxy-acetylene flame which melts it, and an air blast atomises and projects the molten metal at high velocity on to the rotating shaft. The spraying is done first at an angle of 45 deg. in order to fill the under-cuts of the grooves, and completed at 90 deg. The final operation is the finishing of the sprayed surface by turning or grinding.
