News Article:
On stand 6070, Wallwork Group, will showcase advanced me tallurgical processes and surface engineering products used throughout motor sport from drag racing to F1. From sites in Manchester, Birmingham and Cambridge the company works with race engineers and their related sub-contractors.

With an extensive research and development capability we work with teams on specific product innovation – enhanced by an impressive material analysis laboratory with a newly launched mechanical testing capability.

Heat treatment capabilities cover many materials and techniques including case hardening, vacuum treatments, solution and ageing of titanium.

Surface enhancement technologies play a major role in reducing friction, increasing wear resistance and prolonging the life of highly stressed engine and gear components. These include PVD coatings along with low friction Carbon thin films such as WCC-H and DLC and a recently developed duplex process called Nitron 100 for Titanium alloys and stainless steels. We also provide dry lubricating films with both Molybdenum Disulphate and Xylan.

Nitriding is used on motorsport wear parts to create fatigue resistance. A high level of precision enables a high hardness to be achieved without compromising the ba se me tal properties. Camshafts, piston rings, valves and other me tal-to-me tal contact components all benefit.

Vacuum brazing capacity is expanding from our Cambridge site to Birmingham and Manchester. This method of joining dissimilar me tals allows motor sport engineers to form complex shaped profiles and create new parts with great endurance capabilities.

As a supplier to aerospace manufacturers we hold many industry and manufacturer specific quality and service accreditations. We apply the same experience, high quality levels and timely service to ensure that critical lead times in the fast moving world of motor sport can be realised.
