Multi-axis CNC machines are used to produce parts with precise tolerances that conform to Engineering specifications. 3,4 & 5 axis CNC Milling, CNC Turning, EDM, Grinding, Honing, and Burnishing machines are employed to reach the required tolerance and surface finish of complex products. Most of the machines are automated to increase both the throughput and quality of components. Cutting, Welding & cladding are also possible using stick, PTA or Laser technologies
To prevent premature fatigue corrosion or mechanical failures, it is crucial that careful and suitable metal treatment is applied. Choosing the right metal treatment for parts ensures longer life and less maintenance costs. This is why at MIT-Technologies we use the most suitable treatment, apply strictest quality procedures and utilize best material for the application.
Metal treatment portfolio includes coating material surface with special layer or altering the material surface properties to suit the required application.
For wear resistance various types of coating can be applied. This include: HVOF, Plasma, and Laser Cladding, they all coat the part with the required particles, however, the main difference is the thickness of heat affected area. The original properties of the base metal is altered within the heat affected zone causing potential residual stress that can cause premature failure if that stress was not relieved properly.
Different types of metal treatment are possible, here are some examples:
Carbide Coating using High Velocity Oxy-Fuel (HVOF) Technology
HVOF devices use confined combustion and an extended nozzle to heat and accelerate powdered coating material. We use these at MIT-Technologies to produce high quality, dense, wear-resistance carbide coatings for devices that require high wear resistance properties. properties.
Electric & Electro-less Plating
The design engineers at MIT-Technologies apply the greatest care in taking an electric & electro-less plating project from specification to success. Chrome plating is commonly noticed with PDM shafts as used for protection against wear and corrosion.
Electro-less Nickel Plating
Nickel is an excellent adhesive to substrates such as steel, stainless steels, cast iron, aluminum, copper, ceramics and even plastics. Nickel plating brings superb hardness and uniformity to the contacts it is applied to. It is also highly corrosion resistant.
By infusing the surface of a metal with carbon and nitrogen (or a combination of the two), the surface layer can be transformed into a harder, sturdier alloy. At MIT-Technologies, we provide the most advanced processes of case hardening including Carburizing, Carbonitriding & Gas Nitriding with various case hardness depth and properties.
In some cases, only the surface of steels needs to be hardened without an alteration of the chemical composition. The surface of a steel with sufficient levels of carbon can be hardened simply by rapid heating for a short period of time followed by quenching. This process allows the selective hardening of a specific area and depth. It also allows for less metal distortion. The result of induction hardening is a part with great fatigue resistance.
Total Quality Management (TQM) is an approach that seeks to improve quality and performance which will meet or exceed customer expectations. This can be achieved by integrating all quality-related functions and processes throughout the company. TQM looks at the overall quality measures used by a company including managing quality design and development, quality control and maintenance, quality improvement, and quality assurance.
For product quality control, latest technology in measuring product dimensions are deployed to insure compliance to engineering specifications.
