Eliminating roll arcing

This project will investigate alternatives to roll arcing in sugar mills, including laser cladding, to determine the extension to service life that can be achieved and the reduction of health and safety risk costs associated with these alternative approaches. The project will also ensure that there is at least one Australian supplier able to apply and maintain the long life coatings.
