Thermal Spraying is an excellent repair process for worn surfaces such as (but not limited to): bearing journals (internal and external), seal fits, pump packing sleeves, mechanical seal shaft sleeves, pump impeller skirts, impeller wear rings, and sleeve bearing fits. Don’t throw your worn parts away; improve them with thermal spray and cut down on unnecessary replacement costs!
During the coating there is no distortion of the part being coated. The part temperature is generally below 250˚ F (121˚ C) during the spray operation; the substrate of the part that is being coated does not get altered metallurgically. Virtually any material can be applied to any metal substrate and some plastics (including ceramics, carbides, pure metals, and alloy metals), and the application time and finish machining is very fast, reducing costly downtime.
At Pasco Machine, our waterjet cutting machine can perform precision quality cuts on materials from .03 inches to 6 inches in thickness. watch it perform it’s magic
NO Material Limitation
Waterjet cutting is an efficient and versatile way of cutting vast types of material such as composite, plastic, metal, glass, stone or rock, ceramic, and rubber. With the addition of a granular abrasive, our waterjet cutting machine can perform precision quality cuts on materials from .03 inches to 6 inches in thickness.
NO Heat Affected Zone
A major advantage of waterjet cutting is that no heat affected zone (HAZ) occurs due to its cold cutting method. Not only does cold cutting enable clean cuts but produces satin-smooth edges.
NO Material Distortion
Through its cold cutting method, the heat exposure can be bypassed, which is especially critical for materials like metal, leading to a fine cut without edge distortion in the material. This results in a smooth and burr-free cut.
NO Additional Finishing Process – Immediate Satisfaction
The high cut quality ensures a precise result the first time, avoiding additional finishing processes. This helps reduce overall project costs by saving cut time and increasing the overall efficiency of any cutting project.
NO Hazardous Waste
The growing importance of environmentally friendly processes throughout the industries is becoming more apparent. A significant advantage of waterjet cutting is that it does not create any hazardous waste in the form of fumes and gases, unlike other cutting technologies.
Pasco Machine thermal spraying
With Intelli-MAX, the operator enters the material type and thickness, then the software calculates and controls the cutting.
A state-of-the-art tool cutting machine
Fast cutting speeds and precision cuts leaving behind a satin-smooth edge, reducing secondary deburring operations
Cuts .03” sheets of aluminum to 6” plates of steel with precision
Waterjet cutting results tight tolerances
Does not create heat-affected zones or mechanical stresses
Environmentally “green” system uses only natural garnet abrasive and water in the cutting process
Our Omax Waterjet comprises of a Dual Bridge-3 – cutting head system that can be used to increase machining capability and job speed.
Our Waterjet software allows you to import drawings directly from other programs, works with standard DXF files to advance 3D shapes and allows all major CAD / CAM and artistic drawings programs to be imported.
With a built-in innovated CAD software system we are able to take an image from a scanner, digital camera or the internet and quickly convert it to a vector drawing.
