Shot Blasting of Aluminum Brake Repair Kits for the Recreational Vehicle Industry

DeLong Equipment was approached by a recreational vehicle maker to shot blast brakes and clutches for use in break repair kits. We used our 7 cubic foot wheel tumble blast machine to shot blast the 5″ long and 4″ wide brakes and the 10.5″ long and 3″ wide clutches.The blasting of each load of aluminum brakes and clutches was completed in 5 minute cycles.

Finishing of Carbon Steel Squish Plates for the Military Industry

By utilizing S170 steel shot, we removed all corrosion and achieved a matte finish that allowed for a coating to be applied.

DeLong’ outstanding facilities and expertise allowed the customer to save money on internal processing and new hires.
