Beyond The Surface 3rd Quarter 2010
CNC Machining Center
The recently installed CNC Machining Center from Chevalier will enable ASB to support production repeatability on dimensionally challenging hard surfaced components. Features include Fanuc Virtual Device Interface Controller and set-up and tooling features to reduce handling and set-up time. The table diameter is up to 15.74" with 21.65" swing along with high speed tool changing. The equipment will be utilized to produce rough machined parts to a finished coated part.
Heavy Duty Lathe
Another addition to ASB machining capabilities is a 71"diameter (56" diameter over tool post) X 240" long-with a 3 axis cross slide read-out. Using the new lathe for part preparation and finishing for Thermal Spray Processing, we are utilizing our current tooling and belt grinding capabilities. This adds another rigid and powerful tool for ASB Industries--The equipment is installed and running in less then one week after delivery.

Case Studies and Surfacing Applications
High temperature environments create unique challenges for equipment performance and product quality. Shown is a Furnace Roll located in an annealing furnace with a high a performance pseudo ceramic Thermal Spray Coating System to prevent iron by-product adhering to the roll surface that may cause surface defects. The coating is corrosion resistant to the sealed furnace atmosphere with wear and steering properties of the coating system. Each application is unique and consideration of fundamental engineering design is critical to optimize performance.
