Bucket Teeth & Adapters Knowledge
Bucket Teeth & Adapter For Excavators, Loaders & Backhoes
As we all know, Bucket teeth are wearing parts, and necessity of construction machinery, high quality bucket teeth tend to bring greater benefits, here we together to learn the manufacturing processes of bucket teeth.
JOFOV devotes itself in developing and producing all kinds of high quality bucket teeth & adapters for excavators, loaders and backhoes, such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Esco, John Deere, JCB, Hitachi, Volvo, Hensley, ect. Look more brands for bucket teeth
Material of bucket teeth in casting from our foundry is low alloy steel with main elements C, Si, Mn, Cr, Al, ect. Besides, to improve the wear resistance for better working performance, we suggest adding some microelements, like Mo, Ni. Below is the detailed chemical composition and mechanical properties of our cast bucket teeth.
All the bucket teeth and adapters made in our foundry are in lost wax investment casting. Main process for excavator bucket teeth includes: Tooling – Wax manufacturing – Shell building – Dewax – Pouring – Cutting – Shot blasting – Heat treatment – Painting – Delivery.
In general there are three manufacturing process of bucket teeth: sand casting, forging and casting, precision casting, what is their advantages and differences between them?
Forging Casting: Highest cost and quality of bucket teeth is the best.
Precision Casting: moderate cost, but very stringent requirement for the raw material , high technology process, Some precision casting bucket teeth even better than the quality of forging casting bucket teeth due to its abrasion resistance and ingredients. Now on the market, Precision casting are mainstream manufacturing process. Look more at casting process of bucket teeth
Bucket teeth is the wear replacement parts of excavator or loader & backhoes. Such bucket teeth & adapters will be assembled by a pin, retainer and lock. Then fitted to excavator bucket for working (see how to identify & select the right bucket tooth) . For its special working condition in soft soil and rock environment, there is a high demand of wear resistance and high impact, thus to longer the working life.
Why Us to Supply Bucket Teeth?
Advanced process–There exsits another casting process, procoated sand casting (refer to investment casting vs sand casting), for manufacturing bucket teeth in low production cost. But due to its bad quality, it always cause lots of quality problems, such as bad surface finish, not enough wear resistance, short working life, ect. All these quality issues will result in high frequency replacing of bucket teeth, which is not cost-effective and will add cost at last.
Best performance–Combining unique material with excellent heat treatment, our bucket teeth point can maximize its wear and tear. The shape innovation of bucket tooth make it always stay sharp, help to speed up the bucket loading. Also, our lateral thickening design makes products more wear-resistant and durable!
Perfect appearance–Even if the same production process, the apperarance will be different. CFS foundry does not only focus on inner quality, but also pay attention on surface finish. Due to our rich production experience, we continuously improve our investment casting process in each procedure, so that we can achieve good surface quality, and try our best to reduce weld repair. Besides, we adopt firts class painting in different colors so that it looks glossy and well-marked.
Suzhou and Ningbo located–Based in Suzhou and Ningbo, China, JOFOV has a long history and is specialized in supplying various bucket teeth. We all know that Suzhou and Ningbo all are the production base of investment castings. So JOFOV Industrial Parts has the most mature production technoloy for producing casting bucket teeth. Besides, we enjoy convenient water transportation for Shanghai and Ningbo seaport, which will help you save cost.
With OEM types at hand, we can cast and sell numbers of OEM brands, such as Caterpillar, Komastu, JCB, Hitachi, Volvo, Hyundai, Kobelco, Esco, Daewoob, Bobcat, Case, etc. Just please kindly offer us the OEM Part Numbers and relevant Brand name of machines. Besides, we can also produce bucket teeth & adapters from our customers’ drawing or samples. Feel free to contact us if you are interested to purchase bucket teeth from us.
