Deburring, Automotive Stamping of transmission splines leaves fine burrs which are removed in seconds with no media imbedded in the surface. At the same time wet blasting prepares the inside for a pressed bearing.
Deburring, Automotive Deep, sharp stress risers left by broaching are removed with fine slurry blasting. The result is a very large increase in life cycle from the effects of fatigue.
Deburring, Precision Machining Wet blasting removes fine burrs in machined titanium with no dimensional damage while leaving clean, uniform, matt finish.
Deburring and Cosmetic Finishing Examples of deburring machined aluminum components- computer heat sinks, engine fuel rails, etc.
Crack Detection, Aviation Cracks are exposed with no media imbedded in the surface leaving an even finish ready for liquid penetrate inspection or LPI. Dry blasting tends to mask/hide surface cracks.
Aircraft Wheel/Brake Overhaul Oxidation and corrosion deep cleaned for inspection and repair. Faults are exposed.
Automotive Rebuilding – Torque Converters Wet blasting simultaneously cleans and provides a uniform surface finish. Light oils and corrosion are addressed dust free.
Automotive Rebuilding – Transmissions and General Parts Wet abrasive slurry blasting offers deep cleaning of aluminum cases and can eliminate painting while leaving a superior cosmetic surface.
Diesel Engine Rebuilding Wet blasting combines several steps to clean oils and greases as well as corrosion and burnt on carbon.
Investment Casting Removal High pressure water systems to remove investment cast shell and slurry blasting to do the final clean.
Semiconductor Tooling Coating Removal Chemicals eliminated, process time lowered. Delicate cleaning with slurry can remove layers with no damage and warping without media imbedding. Parts include metal shields and ceramic tooling.
Plastic Deflashing Using plastic in the wet blasting slurry removes flash with no damage to the substrate or static. Parts are deflashed, rinsed and dried in one system to meet a particulate free “Millipore” cleanliness standard.
Mold Cleaning Wet blasting achieves simultaneous cleaning and polishing with no damage. Edged are kept sharp and mold life is extended.
Aviation Wet Peening Turbine blades, vanes and components are wet peened on the “N” and “A” scale using glass bead or ceramic beads.
Cosmetic Finishing of Golf Heads Wet Blasting can achieve various looks while leaving a scuff resistant surface.
Medical Implants and Instruments Pre-plate uniform surface finish and etch achieved with no dust imbedded media.
Cosmetic Blending Machined aluminum is wet slurry blasted to blend in extrusion lines and generate and uniform dust free finish.
Composite Bonding Preparation Wet blasting etches the surface to create a light anchoring pattern with no media imbedded to increase the bonding strength and eliminate post-cleaning.
Descaling Wet blasting with various slurry from fine to coarse deep cleans scale for cosmetics and painting preparation in a dust free environment while eliminate caustic chemicals.
Paint Stripping Wet blasting can strip paint in a dust free environment eliminating health hazards from toxic coatings.
