Coatings to service mechanic field: improving perfect machines, today it is possible
Over the years the sector of industrial mechanics has made big progresses from a technological point of view. Machine tools have been automated, computerized and made essentially infallible when used by qualified programmers. Despite this, basic characteristics of their ancestors have remained almost unchanged and many of the solutions adopted at the beginning of the 19th century, with due comparisons, are still exploited today. These modern machines, whether they are CNC machines, lathes, mills or grinding, still require a high degree of maintenance since internal transmission gears are responsible for high precision obtainable during processing. Long ago, most of these components were restored and brought back to a condition suitable for use.
Unfortunately this practice, perhaps due to today’s consumerism, has been completely lost. Metalvar New, thanks to its ten-year experience in the sector, is continuing to provide its customers with innovative solutions. The world of cold coatings offers a myriad of systems able to recondition the components worn out by hours of usage and considered useless. Restorations can be performed in very short times in order to reduce machine downtime. Final performances are often higher, so much so that many manufacturers have decided to insert, right from the beginning, the coating in those areas more subject to wear and tear.
Main works are carried out on:
- Grinding wheel spindles
- Reduction gears
- Hydrostatic pads
- Thrust bearings
