Treatments and coatings have a four-point plan

One of the UK’s largest heat treatments and hard coatings suppliers to aerospace, automotive, motorsports and surgical implant industries, the Wallwork Group, has four locations, Manchester, Birmingham, Cambridge and Newcastle to provide a rapid service to customers in all corners of the UK.

Operating capacity has increased as several investments in equipment went live at the end of 2018, including a large capacity Seco vacuum furnace and Rübig Plasma Nitride furnace in Cambridge. A new 1200kg payload furnace for processing aluminium is coming on stream in Birmingham, closely by a new sealed quench furnace due to be in operation early 2019.

Howard Maher, group sales manager, comments: “Additional plant is only part of the story. We have a strong service ethic . . . Combined with a dedicated pick-up/delivery fleet, UKAS-certified in-house mechanical testing and multiple aerospace prime accreditations”.

The increased capacity is timely, as processing aluminium and vacuum brazing, particularly, are seeing greater demand, in the light of REACH. Also important is the in-house developed environmentally safe PVD coating that is a full HCP (hard chromium plating) replacement.
