Steel Work Innovation Plate - is a two-layer metallic material that composes an integral part. The sheet consists of two different metals, which can be steel and its alloys, firmly interconnected throughout the contacting.

In bimetal layers have different functions and are called the main one and built-up. The main layer assumes mechanical loads and the built-up layer has a high wear resistance and performs a protective function.

Features of the production of SWIP sheets on overlaying technology

Maximum wear resistance is achieved through the use of our own patented production technology, which implies full automation of the overlaying process, allowing to control all its parameters: the value of welding current, arc voltage, electrode extension, the stability of the build up rate, the temperature of the built-up layer, the speed of transverse displacement of the electrodes.

The main layer

The main layer of bimetal can be made from both conventional low carbon steel and heat resistant steel. A special wear-resistant coating is applied on it thought robotic powder overlaying.

The built-up layer

The built-up layer may contain carbides, as well as carboborides, nitrides of iron and alloying elements. In the process of overlaying, materials from both domestic and foreign manufacturers are used.

Bimetal sheet SWIP

Choice of the desired composition allows to achieve an optimal indicator of hardness and maximum operating temperature. Characteristics depend on the working conditions of the product, the nature and intensity of wear.

Bimetal SWIP on explosion welding technology

Together with the Institute of Electric Welding named after E. O. Paton we developed and implemented a joint project for the bimetal production, which is obtained by the pulse method. In this type of bimetal sheets, the strength and mechanical loads are carried by the main layer of inexpensive steels and alloys, and the built-up layer of stainless steels, titanium, brass, zirconium and other alloys serves to protect against the effects of corrosive environment, thermal wear and other factors.

The pulse method of producing multilayer metals is a perspective process, which allows to obtain work parts and products of various sizes and various compositions of metals and alloys.

Allows to make parts and equipment that can not be produced by traditional methods

After welding, the physical and mechanical properties of the welded metals or alloys arepreserved

The greatest strength of the connection between materials is achieved

Allows to provide short production time and efficiency in orders fulfilment

Production has a lower cost compared to traditional overlaying

It is possible to produce any batch: from one piece to hundreds of tons per month

What tasks does bimetal SWIP solves?

The advantage of a two-layer metal is the possibility of production of end products of almost any shape, taking into account rolling and bending. Assembling, joining and fixing bimetal products on the protected surface is performed either by welding or by bolting, studs, etc.

The advantages of bimetal SWIP over other types

An independent laboratory conducted comparative metallographic studies. That is why we are confident in our products and take responsibility for the trouble-free operation of repaired and reconditioned equipment during the warranty period.


20 times higher durability than low alloy steels


5 times higher durability than 110G13 armour, HARDOX


Reduction of the lining thickness and, accordingly, its weight


Dense fusion of the built-up metal between rolls, layers and base metal
