Farm Machinery and Equipment

Equipment used in farming is subjected to high wear and heavy loads. Performance is constantly being pushed to the next level as products are expected to last longer and be cost effective. The agricultural industry has therefore taken a keen interest in ADI and other Austempered materials for their excellent wear characteristics.

Many companies such as John Deere, Caterpillar, and CNH Global are now using Austempered parts to enhance the performance of their equipment and increase productivity for their customers. At the same time the manufacturers have saved money by replacing forgings with low-cost castings that are Austempered for optimum properties.

We can help your designers select the material/process combination that is right for your components and applications. ADI Treatments Ltd is happy to meet your engineers and to discuss solutions with Austempered parts.
