At Rosler, we believe in helping our clients in unique markets find a better way to finish and process their products. According to Grand View Research, Inc., the global structural steel market is expected to reach USD 140.4 billion by 2025. It is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.6% during the forecast period. Increasing construction spending in emerging economies is projected to drive the demand for structural steel. Maybe that’s why our top posts this year included a series on Structural Steel. Enjoy the following recap.
5. Optimal Media Mix, Part 1 – Identifying and Maintaining Proper Levels
The best mass finishing equipment is useless without the proper media. That’s why the experienced engineers at Rosler Metal Finishing pair their quality equipment with the right type and amount of media to achieve consistent results.
Understanding how your machine, the work pieces it
is finishing, and the selected media will interact is key to delivering an
optimal finish each cycle. Doing so requires understanding why media levels are
important, determining and tracking levels, and evaluating media consumption to
To this day, the surface of large structural
aircraft components is frequently finished by hand. This process is not only
costly, but extremely inefficient and hard to replicate with absolute
Rosler Metal Finishing is changing the notion that suitable mechanical finishing equipment is not available for large, structural aerospace components by offering mass finishing technology capable of solving this problem and providing fully automatic finishing of work pieces up to 30 feet long.
We kick off our Aerospace Series with an overview
of the cost-effective and mechanical finishing options Rosler offers for the
Vibratory Tubs Offer a
Thanks to the development of large, powerful vibratory tubs manual deburring and grinding of large aircraft components can now be eliminated. The development of perfectly controlled mechanical finishing systems offers finishing solutions for applications where the biggest rotary vibrator, because of the size of the parts, might still be too small.
While none of these work pieces contain sand, their
surfaces may show oxidization or – in the case of ferrous metals – heavy
scale/rust caused by iron oxide.
All forms of oxidization must be removed to ensure
that subsequent manufacturing operations such as machining, coating, and
painting are economical and efficient. Poorly cleaned work pieces may cause additional
processing, premature wear on milling tools and drill bits, excessive pollution
within coolant systems, and inefficient adhesion of coatings and paint.
Traces of oxidation may also impact the work
All medical technology requires precise surface finishing to ensure safety, strength, and longevity. The specific surfacing goal and technique vary though.
From stainless steel dental drill heads that require deburring and
surface smoothing to stainless steel tweezers that require surface cleaning and
texturing after forging/grinding and induction welding, the specific treatments
are the key to surface finishing success.
Another major milestone for the Rösler Academy has been reached: starting in March 2019, the internationalization of the Academy is set to begin with the English-speaking seminar series. In twelve different training courses, participants will receive basic knowledge of vibratory finishing and blasting technology, in-depth knowledge of individual machine types, maintenance issues or processes such as shot peening. Interested persons can view all seminars with their contents, dates and prices on the new English Academy website; www.rosler-academy.com.
The trainers of the Rösler Academy, all experts in their field, are specially trained by a train-the-trainer course including TÜV certification to provide specialized knowledge in an effective and varied way. The aim is to procure a decisive competitive advantage through effective knowledge transfer. Therefore, in the future our international business partners and customers will be able to benefit from the wealth of experience of the certified specialist and use it profitably in their company.
