Precision Grinding and Machining
Our Precision Grinding and Machining experts will complete your project on time, and within your given parameters. We know the importance of accuracy, and will ensure that your parts will be created to your exact specifications. Whatever your grinding needs, we have the tools and expertise to get it done properly. Some of the grinding services we offer are:
- Cylindrical Grinding : Perfect for products with highly restrictive or precise diameters. Cylindrical grinding is ideal for tight tolerance and/or fine finish projects.
- Surface Grinding : Useful for flat objects. Surface grinding can reduce your materials to a critical size, or simply provide a smooth finish.
- Jig Grinding : Ideal for grinding complex shapes or holes with exact precision. Jig Grinding ensures a high degree of accuracy, and provides a smooth finish upon completion.
Our Machinists are experts in precision and cylindrical grinding. Whether your project requires a smooth, flat top, or a smooth rounded surface, our experts have the tools and qualifications to meet the needs of your project. We don't take heavy machining lightly.
Wilcox High Velocity Ltd. is proud to offer Shot-Peening services. The shot peening process creates compressive stress and plastic deformities in your materials, which helps to protect against microcracks. Shot peening is a used in functional applications for gear parts, coil springs, connecting rods, turbine blades, gearwheels, etc. Shot peening also has cosmetic applications, and will produce more pronounced results than sandblasting, creating a more dramatic effect.
At Wilcox High Velocity Ltd., we use air blast systems, with a variety of spherical cast steel shot and glass beads to create uniform and effective peening.
Thermal Spraying involves heating materials in order to spray onto solidified materials, creating a coating or seal. Thermal Spraying creates a thick and effective coating in less time than other coating methods. We can spray a wide variety of materials, including:
- Soft alloys
- Stainless Steels
Wilcox High Velocity Ltd. has the ability to use a variety of materials and techniques to fit the needs and specifications of your project. Some technique examples include:
- Wire arc spraying
- Flame spraying
- High velocity oxy-fuel coating spraying (HVOF)
Our certified technicians will ensure that your project is completed in a safe and timely matter, and to the needs of your specifications. While not all coating projects are suitable for Thermal Spraying, we will assess your project and offer alternative solutions for your needs.
