KVX offers you a range of high-quality wear bars

Thanks to a unique heat treatment process and special steel properties, KVX is able to harden its steel to 480-550 Brinell Hardness (HBW 10/3000), while still enabling it to withstand high impact conditions without cracking.

5. March 2020

Many years of experience have enabled us to achieve the optimal combination of hardness, abrasion resistance and toughness. KVX wear bars are not only an excellent steel protection solution, KVX customers also typically report that KVX wear bars are easier to use and more reliable in the long run than most competitive alternative.

KVX wear bars uniquely bring together the best of all worlds:

  • Abrasion resistance
  • Impact resistance
  • “Weldability”

Classic straight wear bars

KVX wear bars offer an excellent protection solution for a wild range of applications including:

  • Bucket liners (internal & external, in both impact and wear zones)
  • Dozer blade liners (some applications)
  • Hopper liners (crushers, feeders, etc.)
  • Dump truck liners
  • A broad range of other applications where wear and impact protection are required

Short wear bars have a long range of opportunities to streamline production of many bucket types and needs.

13 references are now available:

  • Length: 750 to 1200mm
  • Width: 80 to 250mm
  • Thickness: 10 to 50mm
  • Weight: 6,3 to 65kgmm

Cut-to-length wear bars

“Short wear bars” is the New Trend!

Wear bars are available in short lengths («Cut-to-length»). This means you can have specific dimensions adapted to your needs.

This is especially interesting for bucket manufacturers to reduce manufacturing time and contractors who can have wear bars adapted to fit the buckets for maintenance.

5 reasons why shorter wear bars are a better solution:

  1. Safety: Shorter bars are safer to handle than 3 or 6-meter bars
  2. Health and environment: Easier handling due to shorter length and lower weight and no cutting inconvenience (smoke/sound)
  3. Less need for production equipment and personnel to handle cutting
  4. Quicker and simplified production due to ready-made bars from stock
  5. Stocking inhouse is easy due to pallet size bar lengths (less rust)

Curved wear bars

With the same abrasion and impact resistance as classic wear bars, the KVX curved wear bars meet a great success in Norway.

They can perfectly fit the shape of your bucket whatever its volume (700L to 2000L). They ensure a better side protection and generate less resistance when digging.

Banana bars

KVX produces some special curved wear bars, called “Banana bars”, for mining excavators. We meet a great success with a customer who has multiplied by three the lifetime of wear bars.

The design has been made for a PC8000 bucket in operation and KVX is working on other alternatives.

Thickness: 12 or 50mm

Grader Blades

KVX Grader Blades are made from High quality material, designed to withstand high impact, abrasion and provide a longer wear life.

This blade is made to reduce your down time by increasing your uptime. Build for heavy duty operations, the KVX Grader Blade will surpass all your expectations.

Three sizes are available:

  • 2438 x 300 x 35 mm
