The Wallwork Group return to MACH, at the NEC in April, celebrating the latest phase in a major expansion programme that sees them offering a significantly broader range of heat treatment, hard coating and development services.
Serving clients in aerospace, motorsport, medical devices, nuclear and other demanding areas of engineering, the company provides a nation-wide service from locations in Manchester, Birmingham and Cambridge. All sites have multiple approvals from leading national and international accreditation services and are staffed by skilled and experienced scientists and engineers.
Building on their established expertise in vacuum brazing the company has doubled processing capacity at its Cambridge site and added a new state-of-the-art vacuum brazing workshop in Manchester to expand national coverage. Each location has a range of vacuum furnaces enabling efficient processing of components and offering project scalability from bespoke development work to full scale volume processing. An extension to the Cambridge facility, extending the footprint by 30 per cent, creates further capacity for on-going expansion.
The company offers multiple options for nitride processing. These embrace thermal treatments such as traditional salt bath processing or treatment in computer controlled furnaces through to plasma processing at relatively low temperatures. Having a full basket of nitriding services to offer, with the additional option of post treatment PVD coating, the company is able to advise impartially on the best technical and commercial options for every situation.
Following demand from existing customers, more processing plant has been added to the Manchester site for the treatment of aluminium and magnesium alloys. These treatments are now accredited to the international aerospace Nadcap standard.
Birmingham is developing as the company centre of excellence for large engineering components. The site can heat treat single components or large scale batches of up to four tonnes using one of the largest and most advanced Seco Warwick vacuum furnaces in the UK. This is complemented by recent investment in the latest environment friendly vapour/spray degreasing equipment capable of processing large components or bulk batches of smaller items speedily and thoroughly. Additional nitriding capacity for Birmingham is planned for 2016 to meet growing local demand.
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.
