Glass Bead produces a clean, satin finish. For delicate thin-walled parts and welds, peening with glass bead provides stress relief without causing damage.
Aluminum Oxide has a wide variety of applications. It is also commonly used for matte finishing as well as cleaning and preparing parts for metalizing, plating and
welding. Aluminum Oxide is the best choice
for an abrasive blasting as well as for preparing a surface for painting.
Steel Grit is ideal for aggressive cleaning applications. The angular nature of steel grit produces an etched surface on metal for superior adhesion of paint, epoxy, enamel, rubber or other coatings.
Ceramic Media is recommended for polishing, light and heavy deburring, fast and extra fast deburring
and ultra aggressive metal removal. Ceramic Media is best for heavy cutting and hard metals.
Plastic Tumbling Media is recommended for pre-painted or pre-plated finishing and/or polishing.
Plastic Tumbling Media is also used for soft metals (such as brass and aluminum) or stringy materials
to avoid rolling burrs into holes. Plastic produces a very smooth finish but with very little shine. It is safe for parts with threads and is good for preparing parts for anodizing. The tetrahedron and cone shapes
of the media are good for parts with pockets and orifices, where triangle shapes are good for corners and
flats. Combinations of media can be used to process geometrically complex parts. Keep in mind there
is no heat transferred to the base metal with this process.
Burn Off Service
NEDS’ latest addition to the professional removal of coatings is our state-of-the-art burn off oven.
With a capacity of 6’ x 4’ x 18’, this oven efficiently cleans and decoats iron and/or steel components.
The high-heat process works in an oxygen deficient atmosphere where combustible hydrocarbons decompose leaving the oven completely dry and ash residue on the metal is easily removed. The oven heats and cools slowly, so there is no warping or stress, leaving the metal as new.
Used in a wide array of industrial applications, this burn off oven effectively removes varnish, epoxy, paint, grease, and oil from machinery parts, automobiles and more. NEDS serves manufacturers, paint shops and other powder coaters to clean paint hooks and racks or for regular cleaning maintenance.
No longer is there a huge void in this sector for cleaning services.
