Shot Peening in Aluminium Sand Casting

Shot Peening in Aluminium Sand Casting

Shot peening is a finishing technique designed to increase component fatigue life and to reduce cracking in parts operating in high-stress environments. For this reason, it is widely used in the aerospace and automotive industries for safety-critical parts in aluminium sand casting.

NEW 5-Axis Vertical Machining Centre

NEW 5-Axis Vertical Machining Centre

We are excited to share the latest addition to our machining capabilities in the form of a 5-Axis Yamazaki Mazak Vertical Machining Centre.  On a 5-axis machining centre, the cutting tool moves across the X, Y and Z linear axes as well as rotating on the A and B axes moving in 4 dimensions enabling it to approach the workpiece from any direction.
