- A major automaker experienced rear end noise
on current model SUVs. After intense diagnostics,
their engineers determined that the only difference
was that the part, a limited slip disk, had not been
processed at RTF, as it had been in previous
RTF and the automaker worked together and
applied a technique used on aircraft components
to relieve metallurgical stress using a unique combination of blast and vibratory processes.
The noise promptly disappeared.
- RTF developed a process for blasting stainless
steel nuts, used on exhaust system clamps. Our
process substantially improved the adhesion
characteristics of a special coating.
- RTF is building an enhanced length, wrap-around
screen deck to assure best-possible media separation,
and produce a better steel media result (despite the
bouncing inherent in steel media!) We are also
updating our equipment controls, and building
a work deck for closer parts inspection, and to
assist in loading and unloading.
Surface improvement, from rust removal to
abrasive blasting, black oxiding to zinc phosphating,
is our specialty!
