Three new vibratory finishing machines from PDJ Vibro Ltd are helping the Metal Improvement Company (MIC) at its Derby facility to streamline the ‘C.A.S.E™’ isotropic superfinishing process, which uses a combination of controlled shot peening, surface treatment by oxalic acids and non-abrasive vibratory finishing to enhance the fatigue strength and surface properties of components operating under stress and enable them to resist high stress loadings. The process is said to be more effective than shot peening alone and is used widely for improving the fatigue resistance of critical motorsport/automotive, aerospace and power generation parts as well as some orthopaedic implants and medical instruments.
One of the UK’s leading specialists in 3D printing – Central London based, Digits2Widgets – has enhanced its range of surface finishing services with the recent installation of a vibratory finishing machine from PDJ Vibro Ltd. The new machine is dedicated to the high quality polishing of Nylon SLS parts and produces a very smooth, ivory-like finish.
Marine wind turbines are particularly susceptible to corrosion as a result of widely variable weather conditions and constant salt-spray. Their surface finish obviously has to be tough enough to cope with this environment and ensure a maximum working life.
Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) specialist – 3T RPD Ltd, based in Newbury – has recently installed a vibratory finishing machine from PDJ Vibro, to complement its surface finishing capability.
Well-established precision engineering firm, Dowse Engineering Ltd, based in Bletchley, Milton Keynes, boasts an excellent reputation amongst its prestigious customer base, which includes companies in motor racing, medical technology, aerospace, and the photographic and telecommunications sectors.
One of the UK’s leading anodising and plating specialists – Anodisers Runcorn Ltd – has eliminated the labour-intensive task of manually deburring and removing inclusions and minor surface defects from mainly aluminium and copper components, following the installation of a new vibratory finishing machine from PDJ Vibro Ltd.
