Sandwell to exhibit at LCV 2017
Following a successful exhibit at the MIA Business Growth Conference, where Sandwell’s exhibit was met with great interest from the audience in attendance, Sandwell will make its debut at the Cenex Low Carbon Vehicle show on September 6 and 7 at Millbrook. On stand C3-200 Sandwell will be displaying the latest shot peening and surface engineering technologies.
At LCV 2017 Sandwell will exhibit their latest decorative “Satinising” techniques, as well as their expertise in conductive and non-conductive coatings. Also on display will be their various shot-peening and bead blasting technologies, not to mention their in-house advanced superfinishing processes and RoboPeen. RoboPeen is a bespoke, in-house developed robot enabling shot peening of parts in hitherto unseen levels of detail and complexity.
The surface engineering expertise that Sandwell are displaying, not only aids weight reduction, but can significantly contribute to increasing the efficiency of components. Sandwell can further help make thermal efficiency gains through its processes, as well as improving electrical resistance in components.
Sandwell’s Technical Director Colin McGrory explains: “At first glance, people might consider it odd to have a surface engineering company at a low carbon show, but actually through the effective and efficient application of the correct techniques, surface engineering can play a huge part in not only the longevity of a component, but also its efficiency.”
“Add to that the fact that we can help make thermal gains as well as electrical resistance and you can see the scope clearly. Low Carbon vehicles by their definition have to be efficient, and that is where we can help” he continues.
“There is also the other side where through our decorative finishing processes we can help companies get the exact look and feel they wish for their parts, and we see our Satinising process being used a lot for things like car interiors.”
