Wallwork research &development expertise

Metal heat treatment and hard coatings are relatively mature processes but the metal performance properties demanded by aerospace, automotive and medical device engineers means the technical boundaries are being pushed all the time. At Advanced Engineering, Stand P52, Wallwork Group will be showcasing their research and development expertise.

At their well-equipped laboratory in Cambridge, the company is innovating unique heat treatment and coatings processes that solve real world problems for customers. Highly skilled and qualified staff are involved in cross-industry research with product manufacturers to improve performance, reduce production cycle times and achieve savings.

Once a new process is developed, Wallwork see it scale-up from the lab to full production. Non-disclosure agreements are an important part of this work to ensure a customer’s return on investment is protected.

With sites in Cambridge, Manchester and Birmingham, the firm offers an incomparable range of metal improvement services. Heat treatments include solution, age or precipitation, hardening and tempering, nitriding by gas or plasma and more. Coatings include TiN, CrN, CrALN, TiALN, Diamond Like Carbon, Duplex Nitron and multi-layer variants. The company is also a centre of excellence for vacuum brazing, producing complex component assemblies by joining same-metal or dissimilar metals.

To ensure quick and reliable service, Wallwork has invested in their own fleet of over 45 collection and delivery vehicles. These operate out of six depots around the UK and allow the company to take full responsibility from load pick-up through processing and to return.

Already AS9100 revision D certified, the company has many process specific approvals from aerospace primes such as Airbus, BAe Systems, Rolls Royce and Moog.
