Rankin Industries has introduced RanCUT™, an arc cut wire designed to remove hardfacing deposits without air assist.

RanCUT™ arc cut wire was developed for operators to remove old hardfacing deposits from circumferential shaped parts including drill pipe tool joints to prepare for new welds, without the use of compressed air. RanCUT works best on round parts in the three o'clock or nine o'clock arc position where gravity pulls the molten puddle material off the part. RanCUT offers very high metal removal rates and is an excellent choice for drilling tools, tool joints, and drill collars. Additional applications include using RanCUT to groove or reshape gyratory cones, and cement and coal rolls.
