Heat treatments and advanced hard coatings

The Wallwork Group operates from four locations, Manchester, Birmingham, Cambridge and Newcastle to provide a rapid service to customers in all corners of the UK. Operating capacity has increased as a number of new investments in equipment go live at the end of 2018. These include a large capacity Seco vacuum furnace and Rübig Plasma Nitride furnace in Cambridge. A new 1200kg payload furnace for processing aluminium is coming on stream in Birmingham and this will be followed closely by a new sealed quench furnace due to be in operation early 2019.
Howard Maher, group sales manager, commented, “Additional plant is only part of the story. We have a strong service ethic that is routed in our people. Combined with a dedicated pick-up/delivery fleet, UKAS certified in-house mechanical testing and multiple aerospace prime accreditations, customers really appreciate the full end-to-end service we can provide. Fast, efficient and without compromising quality.”
Processing aluminium and vacuum brazing, particularly, are seeing greater demand, so the new capacity is coming on stream just at the right time. In the light of REACH and also important is the in-house developed environmentally safe PVD coating that is a full HCP (hard chromium plating) replacement.
