The Advantages Of Outsourcing Stainless Steel Repair

Apr 20, 22 The Advantages Of Outsourcing Stainless Steel Repair

Posted by in Metal

In many industries, parts and components are made of stainless steel to comply with sanitary requirements. This is the case in the food and beverage industry, dairy processing, and in the manufacturing of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. Stainless steel is naturally resistant to corrosion, which means rust is less of a risk in the process. Stainless is also non-porous, which means that bacteria and other contaminants cannot form on the surface. Finally, stainless is also resistant to other types of damage from chemicals and abrasive materials, making it an effective choice for parts and components. However, when stainless steel needs to be repaired, it can be a challenge. For industries, outsourcing these needs to a stainless steel repair service makes practical sense. Reduced Costs Using a specialized stainless steel repair service means the company does not have to purchase equipment and employ teams with the experience and expertise to work with the stainless. Outsourcing allows the company to plan its budget by paying only for the costs to repair the part. Quality Control Outsourcing to an experienced, proven stainless steel repair service ensures confidence that the repair is done correctly and the part is returned in a condition to meet industry standards. Look for a stainless steel service for your repairs specializing in working with companies in the sanitary process. These companies are often located in proximity to food and beverage production centers, dairy industry and processing facilities, and areas where pharmaceutical and cosmetic products are produced.

Why Choose The Rubber To Metal Bonding Process?

Aug 09, 19 Why Choose The Rubber To Metal Bonding Process?

Posted by in Metal

In many types of applications, metal to metal parts are a constant source of excessive wear, noise, transfer of vibrations and a range of other potential problems and issues. To solve these problems, and to provide a seal, OEMs have several possible options. The Value of Bonding Rubber to Metal In the past, one of the most common options was the use of gaskets or rubber and synthetic types of seals. While these products are effective and they can be replaced as needed, they also have a relatively short life cycle, and they are an additional cost in the design. It is also an extra step in the fabricating and manufacturing process, with an improperly placed gasket or seal often causing significant problems for the consumer. A better option is to use rubber to metal bonding processes to completely bond the rubber component directly to the metal part. Through the use of advanced types of adhesives, the bonding is very durable. It eliminates the problems with gaskets and seals slipping and moving. In fact, the rubber to metal bonding process is so complete and precise, these types of parts are used in the aerospace industry, as automotive parts, and in medical equipment and electrical components. Specifics of the Process The key to effective, precise, and top quality rubber to metal bonding is to use a company with extensive expertise and experience in the process. It is essential for the metal component to be correctly prepped prior to the application of the adhesive and the rubber components. The top companies offering this process can work with a variety of different metals and alloys. It is essential to the durability of the bond to match the alloy with the adhesive and to set up the process specific to the materials. Typical metals used in rubber bonding including steel and aluminum, with brass, copper, and beryllium also used in specific types of applications. Be the first to...

The Advantages In Choosing A Laser Metal Cutting Service

There are many different options to consider in the forming of parts for all types of applications. When working with sheet metals and alloys, one of the fastest and most precise methods to use is laser metal cutting. A top laser metal cutting service can provide simple to highly complex parts with a short turnaround time and cut to exact specifications. The use of CNC laser cutting equipment also provides several benefits to make this state-of-the-art technology a cost-effective choice. Speed of Production With an experienced laser metal cutting service , all aspects of the process are very fast. This includes the speed of setting up the equipment and the ability to immediately begin production without the long gaps used in other types of production methods. The speed of setup and production also means the service is able to quickly scale up or scale down to meet changing order requirements and market demand. This is essential for small to large Original Equipment Manufacturers where there can be a dramatic change in order requirements. Waste Reduction and Cost Savings One of the benefits of using a laser metal cutting service is the cost savings through waste reduction as well as processing speeds. Parts can be designed to minimize any waste through nesting smaller parts within larger parts. With multiple parts, quickly and easily cut on the same equipment in the same operating time, the cost per unit of production goes down. The smooth, even and precise edges of the laser cut also mean no finishing or clean-up processes are required on the cut part or component. Saving additional grinding and deburring steps means less cost per unit produced as well as a lower turnaround time for production. Experience, state-of-the-art equipment and expertise in setting up the process will be important. Look for companies offering laser metal cutting with experience in the industry and a solid reputation for quality and on-time delivery of orders. 1 person likes this...

Top Reasons To Choose Zinc Nickel Plating

Apr 04, 17 Top Reasons To Choose Zinc Nickel Plating

Posted by in Metal

While plating using zinc nickel can be used for a wide range of applications, it is most commonly found on parts and components in the automotive industry. This is an electroplating process that offers a range of benefits or advantages not possible with other plating options and processes. The use of zinc nickel plating is primarily to reduce corrosion. It is highly effective as a coating for this purpose, with a similar impact of that found with cadmium electroplating. However, unlike cadmium electroplating, it is very safe for the environment. In addition, the use of zinc nickel rather than cadmium often prevents the need for an additional chromate conversion coating. Aesthetic Benefits While not as important as corrosion resistance, the use of zinc nickel plating also offers an aesthetic factor that is not present in all types of plating and coating. When applied using the latest in technology and equipment this plating will offer a bright and burn-free coating that can be left as is or further processed with clear or black trivalent passivates. These coatings are RoH compliant, so this is often a choice for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers) exporting parts and components outside of the United States. Durability An often overlooked aspect to zinc nickel plating is the durability factor over other plating options. It is very resistant to corrosion, even if the part is exposed to repeated thermal shock that can limit the effectiveness of other plating options. When applied by experienced companies it will also be, completely blister free, and this is a plating that will not display the “whiskers” that can be noted with other types of plating in different industries. This plating is particularly important in the automotive industry for one additional factor. It is an ideal consideration when the metal part has to be bonded to rubber, something that can be problematic for other coatings to achieve. Be the first to...
