Conforma Clad™ Wear Protection for Extrusion Equipment
Kennametal Conforma Clad™ offers industry leading wear protection for extruder screws and liners. We have been helping pet food manufacturers extend the life of their equipment for many years. Conforma Clad screws and liners are engineered to withstand the most extreme extrusion processes.
Conforma Clad technology was first applied in 1982 with our plant in New Albany, IN opening shortly thereafter. Conforma Clad’s unique cloth delivery system enables densely-packed tungsten carbide or Stellite™ alloy to be uniformly applied to complex geometries, providing a metallurgically bonded protective barrier that retains its exceptional wear characteristics through the full cladding. We also offer new & used rotary airlocks with solid carbide tiles as well as screw segments with the option of a tile combined with carbide cladding for the most extreme wear conditions. Conforma Clad technology has been used in many industries to protect critical components, however, extrusion equipment has long been a key focus for the Conforma Clad team who have decades of experience in this industry and are committed to offering superior products and service to their global customer base.
