With a proven record of over 30 years, our original Bridgemaster® continues to deliver. This system is a heavy duty, lightweight, low energy, and high-deposition arc-spray metalizing system. A great option in corrosion control applications running 1/8" and 3/16" wires.

Over the years, we've designed updates to this machine to allow interchangeability with older Bridgemaster systems. This strategy has helped our customers by giving them the option to purchase a machine which has many improvements over their current machine, yet is familiar in the sense of operation, maintenance, and availability of spare parts.

Our proprietary industrial strength wire drives are CNC machined, anodized, and have an adjustable wire tension lock system. The design of the powder coated feeder cabinet and cart allows individual components to be replaced if damaged, saving both time and money.

After making a significant investment in new equipment, it helps to know you will never be stranded with a discontinued model or its parts. In another 30 years, we look forward to being able to offer continued support on our older equipment, which isn't something every manufacturer can say!

If you are shopping for new equipment, you should consider the new Bridgemaster® MKII over the original Bridgemaster. The MKII includes additional features not available on our original Bridgemaster, and comes with the added advantage of a lower 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.

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

Major Advantages

  • 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.
