At Advanced Engineering 2015, stand A55, Wallwork Group are championing the benefits for customers from a major expansion programme that sees them offering a significantly broader range of heat treatment, hard coating and development services than last year. In many areas the company has also increased processing load size too.
Enhancements include, greater capacity and more expertise in vacuum brazing, having doubled the size of the Cambridge plant and bringing online a dedicated vacuum brazing facility in Manchester. Multiple options for nitride hardening have been added, alongside additional capacity for large component and bulk components heat treatment.
Responding to customer demand, aerospace treatment of aluminium and magnesium alloys to Nadcap aerospace standards has also been added to the service. Completing the picture, the company now provide an even greater choice of PVD and PECVD applied surface coatings and is also including other world class coating brands such as those from the German diamond coating specialist CemeCon alongside their own.
Wallwork serve clients in aerospace, motorsport, medical, nuclear and other demanding industries. Operating from three locations in Manchester, Birmingham and Cambridge, with multiple quality accreditations, the company provides a nationwide service supported by door-to-door collection services for rapid product turnaround.
Expansion has been driven by a £2 million investment programme in new plant and processes across all three locations. Wallwork staff will be on stand throughout the show to demonstrate the full line of heat treatment, hard coating and development services now available to customers.
