Services Wallwork Heat Treatment Birmingham Ltd Provide
Aerospace Heat Treatment
Both Wallwork Heat Treatment Manchester and Cambridge operate a 24/7 fully integrated process house that between them encompasses a comprehensive list of aerospace approved thermal treatments.
Vacuum Brazing is a joining process which can offer significant advantages in terms of cleanliness, joint strength and integrity. The process is performed under vacuum with excellent temperature uniformity.
Commercial Coatings (PVD)
Using PVD coatings on metal components and tools is becoming increasingly popular and necessary, as these items are required to perform tasks that are beyond the capabilities of the base metal.
