The Influence of Surface Welding Using EDTCrMnSi Special Wire on the Wear Resistance of 16Mn Steel
Coal-winning machine is to break coal with rotating mechanism. Owing to the harsh working environment and large stress, the top-disc plate, helical blade and tooth holder in cylinder often lose their wear resistance, hence causing overhauling of the machine and influencing the production of coal. With the modernization of the production technology and mining equipment of coal, the mining intensity of coal constantly increases, which calls for higher wear resistance of the top-disc plate, helical blade and tooth holder in cylinder. Currently, many studies have been performed on the wear resistance of the tooth holder in cylinder, but rare on the wear-resistant technology and wear resistance of the top-disc plate and helical blade in cylinder. In this paper, 16Mn steel which is used in the top-disc plate and helical blade in the cylinder of coal-winning machine was welded based on surfacing technology using EDTCrMnSi special wire to obtain composite wear-resistant steel plates. Then wear tester was employed to compare the wear of 16Mn steel and composite wear-resistant steel plate. Meanwhile, metallographic microscope and x-ray fluorescence spectrometer (XRF) were used to observe the microstructure of the materials and analyze the types and contents of elements in the surfacing layers of the composite wear-resistant steel plate. Furthermore, the influence of surfacing technology on the wear resistance of the material was analyzed. The results showed that there existed high contents of Cr, Si and Mn in the surfacing layers of the top-disc plate and helical blade in cylinder of the coal-winning machine after welded based on surfacing technology. Moreover, the wear resistance and service life of matrix were largely improved.
