application Flamespray reclamation of ball bearing seats on rubber coated print rollers

INTRODUCTION The printing, paper and packaging industries use a wide range of rubber coated steel rollers for applying ink adhesive or the transportation of paper. During use, the bearings at each end of the rubber coated rollers will become impregnated with ink, adhesive or other types of debris causing them to seize, inducing the roller […]

application Reclamation of blanket cylinders web offset litho press

  INTRODUCTION  In the offset litho printing process, there is a requirement to use a mixture of water and ink to achieve the correct density of print. The introduction of water onto any printing process will inevitably lead to corrosion problems. The blanket cylinder is one of the main casualties of this corrosion, where the […]

application Reclamation of plate cylinder web offset litho press

INTRODUCTION    In the offset litho printing process, there is a requirement to use a mixture of water and ink to achieve the correct density of print. The introduction of water onto any printing process will inevitably cause corrosion problems. One of the main problems on an offset litho press is the plate cylinder, where […]

application Backing nickel electroforms

INTRODUCTION  Nickel electroforms are extensively used as tools for injection moulded plastics. Whilst they give excellent service, their production is slow and costly. In some cases, tool distortion may be caused by the high residual plating stresses. For these reasons, the Metallisation spraying processes have been adopted to reinforce thin electroformed shells to produce tools […]

application Metal spray moulds in the shoe industry

INTRODUCTION  Due to the rise in costs of producing a pair of shoe sole moulds using the conventional methods of casting or engraving, metalspray moulds have increased in popularity over the past decade. By using the Metallisation Arcspray Process of Mould Manufacture, it is possible to produce a pair of shoe sole moulds in two […]

application Manufacture of Sprayed Metal Moulds

INTRODUCTION  The Metallisation Metal Spraying Process is in increasing use today for the manufacture of low cost moulds and tools for the plastics foundry and other industries. In this process, metal in the form of a molten spray, is deposited on to a suitable pattern; the spray solidifies immediately on the surface to produce a […]

application Flamespray reclamation of rudder posts

INTRODUCTION    The Shipping Industry, like any other Industry, has its share of wear problems. These are generated by the very harsh conditions of a Marine Environment; ships are sometimes at sea for months at a time with limited regular maintenance to some of the extreme areas. The rudder post which will only have limited […]

application Flamespray reclamation of ships propeller shafts

INTRODUCTION  Due to the constant rotation of a ships propeller shaft in a harsh marine environment, the bearing areas are very susceptible to wear, consequently giving rise to the inclusion of sand, salt water and other debris, leading to bearing seizure and loss of propulsion. By using the Metallisation Flamespray process it is possible to […]
