Need to Improve Bond Strength?

Are you solely specifying Ra to determine bond strength? Do you see variation in pull or peel tests? We find that specifying Ra alone rarely provides a comprehensive understanding of a surface’s bonding potential. To improve bond strength, incorporate developed surface ratio (Sdr) and full coverage into your specification. Here’s why…

Need a consistent and repeatable surface finish?

What do you include in your surface finish specification? Abrasive type and size? Blast pressure? Anything else? Like the majority of first-time MicroBlasting users, you might stop at those points. Unfortunately, this limited outline opens the door to inconsistent surface finish results.

How to calculate stempover and get a uniform surface finish

“Where did these stripes come from?” This is a question we hear in automated texturing and etching applications. Most customers want to avoid creating a barber-pole or stripe pattern on their part surface.

Abrasive Jet Machining from the Blog

How to create features of a specific depth

A single pass of the focused abrasive stream from a MicroBlaster can uniformly remove 5 µin (0.127 microns) or less of material depending on the substrate, abrasive, and blast parameters. Given this level of precise and controllable erosion, you simply need to know how to fine-tune the process to suit your application.

Read More

5 Variables for Abrasive Jet Machining

Using MicroBlasting to cut or etch a part (a process also known as controlled erosion) is a great method to machine many precision parts, from drilling holes in ceramic substrates to cutting slots in fragile silicon and glass wafers. MicroBlasting is “shockless,” generating neither heat nor vibration, meaning microcracks are less likely to form and damage part integrity.

Etching channels to create an air bearing or hydrodynamic seal

Bearings inside turbine engines operate at high speeds in a harsh environment where traditional rolling contact or static bearings would not survive. To improve reliability and fuel efficiency specifically on jet engines, shallow channels are incorporated into the design in which air flows rather than traditional lubricants. The technical challenge is how to create these channels.
