TMS Bridgemaster® MKII Arc Spray System
The Bridgemaster® MKII is the newest addition to our Bridgemaster series and is packed full of new features and technology. This system, like its predecessor, is a heavy duty, lightweight, low energy, and high-deposition arc-spray metalizing system meant for running either 1/8" or 3/16" wires.
Ideal for shop or field corrosion control coatings, the Bridgemaster® MKII includes a new robust 6-wheel wire drive assembly, extreme duty gear box/drive motor, safety interlocks, and color coded meters. These new features add to the reliability of the system even in the harshest of conditions. All of these features further separate the Bridgemaster® MKII from its competition.
The lightweight portability of the total system, the low maintenance requirements, the ease of operation, plus the “no wire clipping” feature, all add up to increased production time for the metalizing applicator.
Improved production, efficiency, and safety - and the best part - all of this even comes with a reduced price!
The Bridgemaster® Series
The Bridgemaster® Series is a lineup of twin wire arc spray systems that are heavy duty, yet portable. These low energy, high deposition arc spray machines are primarily used in the corrosion control industry to apply metalized coatings. Modular by design, these systems are capable of easy adaptation to the needs of the customer.
The Bridgemaster Series can be configured for automated or handheld, shop or field, close coupled or stand alone, while dispensing wire from either drums or spools.

Simple handle/knob tension assembly that allows for easy tension adjustments by the machine operator. Nothing hidden or complicated like other drives available on the market today.
The six wheel wire drive design includes four serrated “U” groove drive wheels, one large grooved guide wheel and one smooth following wheel. The serrated “U” groove drive wheels nearly double the wire gripping power of “V” groove drive wheels common in many systems.

Drummed Wire Dispensing Unit
Payout Systems are an excellent option for high production applications where drummed wire can be utilized. (Zinc and Zinc/Aluminum wires up to 3/16" in diameter.) View More
Arc Spray Process
In the arc spray process, the raw material in the form of a pair of metallic wires, is melted by an electric arc. This molten material is atomised by a cone of compressed air and propelled towards the workpiece.
The molten spray solidifies on the component surface to form a dense, strongly adherent coating.
Arc Sprayed Coating Benefits
- Corrosion Protection
- Component Reclamation
- Wear Resistance
- Electrical & Thermal Conductivity
- Free Standing Shapes
- The coatings are available for almost instant use with no drying or curing times.
- The deposits generally possess a higher degree of bond strength than flame sprayed deposits.
- It is more economic to operate than flame spray. No fuel is required; just compressed air and electricity.
