Thermal processing and specialist coatings company, Wallwork, chose Farnborough to announce the new identity for their Tecvac division. Re-branded as Wallwork Cambridge, the company will continue to be a centre of excellence for research, development and application of advanced coatings for aerospace, motorsport, medical devices and other demanding industries.
Sales and marketing director, Simeon Collins explained, “We acquired Tecvac 18 years ago to give the group capability in this growing field. Relocating to new, purpose built premises the following year, we began a programme to create a skilled team of scientists and engineers working with the most advanced surface coating technology. The rebranding recognises that the company is a core part of the Wallwork Group, serving aerospace and other technologically pioneering industries.”
In addition to the application of specialist coatings to improve the hardness, lubricity and other critical properties of metal components, Wallwork Cambridge also builds the PVD machines used in this process. These bespoke machines are chosen around the world by university material science departments, metallurgical laboratories and manufacturers for their advanced research and development programmes.
Machine building will continue at Cambridge. Recognising the value of the Tecvac brand to this important customer base, the PVD machines will continue to bear the Tecvac name.
A recent addition to facilities at Cambridge has been the creation of a specialised manufacturing unit for brazed components. This has a complete capability from development work and batch production to large scale volume production.
In addition to offering their own unique coating services, Wallwork Cambridge is the official UK partner of the German coating specialist CemeCon. As such they are the only accredited supplier in the UK for their patent processes.
