In the previous post we saw that glass beads glass microspheres have application in multiple sectors. However, beyond the railway and automotive industries, microspheres are also used to treat glass or in industries as disparate at first glance as aeronautics and medicine.
– Cleaning of molds, removal of oxide layers without metal loss. The finest engravings are retained and the life cycle of the molds is substantially increased.
Flat glass plants
– Cleaning of the rollers and calenders of oxide films, mostly under the use of a brushing and blasting head with abrasive recirculation. Spectacular time and cost savings compared to hand brushing.
– Cleaning of jet engines and turbine blades, intake pipes and manifolds, aircraft engines, cylinder heads.
– Elimination of wing corrosion, opening of stress cracks.
– Shot blasting of all engine and landing gear parts and wing elements exposed to stress.
Tire factories, rubber boot factories, and other rubber manufacturers
– Cleaning of molds, e.g., tires, boots, battery boxes, without removal of base material.
– Deburring of precision castings and sintered parts or gears.
– Cleaning of foundry molds.
– Shot blasting to prevent corrosion and mechanical stress cracking, with the objective of prolonging the life cycle of all parts exposed to stress.
– Post-tempering and tempering treatment.
– Removal of salt scales and salt crusts after hardening processes.
– Preparation for polishing, burnishing or galvanizing processes.
– Glass bead blasting glass beads is the most delicate process for the removal of corrosion on die castings and gravity die castings. Significantly increases the life cycle of dies and molds.
– Polishing of non-ferrous metals
Medical and FoodIndustry
– Cleaning of oven molds
– Surface finish (uniform with dull matte finish)
– Welding bead stripping with simultaneous elimination of internal stresses.
