Caden Edge Welding Technology Now Available on Plow Sweeps

“By lasting longer, this new technology eliminates costly downtime by not having to change out sweeps and points and allows for better seed bed preparation.”

USM WearTech announces the new CADEN Edge welding technology is now available on plow sweeps and ripper points. CADEN Edge is a patented welding process that enables sweeps and points to last 3 to 5 times longer than standard equipment.

“We at USM are pleased to announce that the CADEN Edge process is now available to the agricultural, biomass and heavy industrial markets,” said Loran Balvanz, President and CEO of USM WearTech.

“By lasting longer, this new technology eliminates costly downtime by not having to change out sweeps and points and allows for better seed bed preparation,” said Balvanz.

For over the past 23 years, USM WearTech has designed, built and refined their own automated equipment to apply the patented Tungsten Carbide weld to industrial and environmental products. The unique and proprietary CADEN Edge process (Carbide Applied Designed Edge Network), allows USM to place into the base metal Tungsten Carbide chips from the surface to the root of the weld creating a depth penetration almost impossible to produce by hand.

USM uses a welding process that allows for the chips to be buried in a weldment network which absorbs most of the shock and keeps the Tungsten Carbide from chipping or shattering thus providing assured results of up to 5 times the normal wear life of the product. It was reported that some farmers ran all last season without having to change sweeps.

Caden Edge products can now be easily ordered directly through the recently launched CADEN Edge website at The new website also provides for quick delivery through participating OEM Ag dealers.

“Previously, to receive CADEN Edge sweeps and points was a long, drawn-out process that took weeks if not months to take delivery,” says Balvanz. “Now, our new website will speed up the process exponentially.”

Through this website and our dealer network, customers will now have easy access to CADEN Edge plow sweeps and ripper points for the 2016 season.

For over two decades, U.S. Manufacturing has developed, designed, manufactured and distributed innovative equipment for the entire solid waste and recycling industry. USM is widely recognized as the leading manufacturer of the longest lasting and most efficient hammer mill components available for both Original Equipment Manufacturers and after market replacement parts.

Loran Balvanz, President and CEO of USM WearTech, founded the largest wood waste processing company in the United States. During this period, Loran recognized the need for an enterprise dedicated to making ultra-high quality, durable, replacement wear parts. In 1993, U.S. Manufacturing was formed for that sole and dedicated purpose.
