Wheelabrator Wire, Bar and Billet Descaling Machines

Wheelabrator’s Wire and Bar descaling machines are renowned for their reliability and multi-shift capabilities. The process of mechanical descaling can be considered as an “environmentally responsible” non-polluting alternative to chemical descaling.

Wire, bar, tubes and profiles can be blast cleaned in a single or multistrand method. Wheelabrator offers the solutions to descale wire coils with the following machines: 

Single strand machines
Multi strand machines
Wire coil machines

Designed as 3, 4 or 6 wheel machines, Single- or Multistrand longitudinal blast machines not only meet different capacity requirements, but can be optimally adapted to changing product runs. These shot blast machines are easy to integrate into modern drawing lines operating at speeds of up to 240m/min or can be used as stand-alone machines for autonomous finishing.

Wheelabrator Strip Descaling Machines

Today, the different operations for the production of hot rolled strip (carbon-, silicon and stainless steel strip) are done in-line: annealing, cooling, descaling and pickling are combined in integrated processing lines. This combination of mechanical descaling and chemical pickling has greatly reduced the amount of chemicals used.

World leading Wheelabrator technology is available for narrow, medium and wide strip. Blast cleaning systems can be adjusted to various strip widths and quality grades and will enable practically any output demand.

Product category: Shot peening

Wheelabrator Spring Peening Machines

Shot peening is an established technology designed to enhance the fatigue strength of components which are subject to high alternating stress. Shot peening strengthens lighter components which, optimised for weight and cost/benefit, can be loaded up to the limits of their properties.

Shot peening systems for suspension, valve and leaf springs
Shot peening systems for valve springs and small pressure springs
Stress peening system for coil springs

Wheelabrator shot peening systems deliver reliable process-safe treatment of workpieces of all geometries, sizes and qualities. The systems are flexible, and so offer longterm investment security if process or production requirements change.

Automotive Peening

Wheelabrator Impact applies fatigue enhancing, controlled, automated shot peening processes to most metallic/alloyed components incorporated in a motorsport racing vehicle.

These processes are also increasingly being applied to everyday automotive motor vehicle production.

The applications for shot peening in auto sport and automotive engineering are highly varied and are applicable to most high cyclic stress loading environment conditions, including performance sports cars and also very large plant vehicles.
