Abstract : The authors suggest the use of an alternating current plasma arc for preparing a surface just before pouring (in this case, the surface is cleaned by the so called ion etching process) and for facing the bearing's framework with babbitt. This process eliminates the laborious operation of cleaning the surface. The quality of the babbitt deposited by the plasma arc and its adhesion strength are not inferior to those characteristics obtained by the usual method. (Author)
