At Professional Motorsport World Wallwork Group will be highlighting the latest advances in micro thin coatings that improve metal wear resistance, lubricity and performance of critical engine, gear box and transmission components. Also on show will be thermal processing techniques for metal hardening and bonding.
Protecting metal-to-metal surfaces from damage to maintain an optimal profile is the aim of the specialist coatings offered by heat treatment experts the Wallwork Group. The company works extensively with leading F1 teams on key components such as camshafts, gearing, bearings and turbo chargers. In addition to aerospace standards of thermal processing, the company’s precision coatings cover the full carbon spectrum, from graphite to diamond, giving resilience and lubricity.
A range of single, multi-layer and duplex coatings, based on nitride and other materials, is also available. Backed by comprehensive research, development and quality assurance facilities, bespoke processes can be developed to address particular technical issues found in motor racing.
As a leading aerospace component processor, the company also has a wealth of experience in the vacuum brazing of complex components. This process provides extraordinary strength metal to metal bonding in a high vacuum environment so that there is no surface oxidization.
Sales director, Simeon Collins explained, “We bring to F1 knowledge and expertise from our work with leading aerospace manufacturers such as Airbus, Rolls Royce and Goodrich. This means that we operate world-class laboratory facilities to develop, deliver and validate coatings and thermal processes that give long life resilience, lubricity and the sustained performance demanded by the extremes found in motorsport.”
