Bury, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 17, 2014 -- Wallwork, the thermal processing and specialist coatings company, used Farnborough International Airshow to introduce Wallwork Cambridge, the new name for Tecvac. The new company aims to maintain and build their reputation for excellence in research and development and the application of coatings for aerospace, motorsport, medical devices and other demanding industries that improve endurance and performance of critical components. These frequently operate in extreme conditions of heat, pressure, flow or other aggressive environments.
Simeon Collins, site director responsible for the Cambridge operation explained, "We acquired Tecvac 18 years ago to extend our capability in this growing field. Investment in staff, premises and equipment has been continuous, starting with re-location to purpose built workshops, laboratory and office premises the following year. This has continued with a programme to create a skilled team of scientists and engineers working to create the most advanced surface coating technology. Rebranding recognises the company as a central part of the Wallwork Group, serving ground-breaking industries such as aerospace, motor sport and medical implants."
The specialist coatings applied at Cambridge improve the hardness, lubricity and other critical properties of metal components. Wallwork also builds the PVD machines used in this process at the site and has customers around the world in university material science departments, metallurgical labs and manufacturers. Machine building will continue at Cambridge with the machines carrying the Tecvac name.
A dedicated facility has been established at Cambridge for development, batch and volume production of complex brazed components. As a centre of excellence in coating technology and in addition to their own unique coating services, Wallwork Cambridge offers other leading technology as well as its own. The company is the official UK partner of the German coating specialist CemeCon. They are the only officially accredited supplier in the UK for CemeCon's highly specialised advanced coatings.
