Machine Breakdown Repair

Cyllindral Grinding, Vertical Grinding, Surface Grinding

For over 6 decades, Industrial Grinding has offered machine breakdown repair to any company in the manufacturing industry with a moving part. Our extensive in-house grinding and metalizing capabilities enable us to repair worn machine parts such as gear shafts, drive spindles, as well as spindle housings. Typical materials that we process include cast iron and tool steel.

Your machine components are refurbished by grinding and metalizing, while maintaining tolerances close to 0.0001". We have a full line of grinding equipment for performing cylindrical, ID/OD, vertical, surface, Blanchard, wet, and rough grinding operations. Through thermal spraying, Industrial Grinding enhances the corrosion, heat, and wear resistance of machine parts used in highly corrosive environments.

Coating materials used in our thermal spraying processes include oxide ceramics, nickel-chromium alloys, and non-ferrous metals. Through plasma arc spraying, we coat component substrates with high-density tungsten carbides, molybdendum, bronze, or oxide ceramics for enhancing wear resistance and bond strength.

Metallizing: Ceramic Coating

Metallizing

Through thermal spraying, we apply ceramic coatings on components such as pistons, shafts, and pump seals. Our ceramic coatings act as thermal barriers between dissimilar materials, reducing friction of machine components used in printing and aerospace industries. The low porosity and high strength coating process also enhances corrosion as well as wear resistance of custom components.

Common ceramic materials used include ceramic alumina, 102 titanium oxide, 10 white alumina, and 201 zirconium oxide. Our extensive metallizing equipment can process parts up to 150" in length and 40" in width, while holding tolerances close to 0.0002". Depending on your specific application, workpieces can be coated with ceramic products up to 0.025" in thickness.

The hardness of our ceramic coatings range from 52 Rc up to 63 Rc.
