Curtiss Wright Impress at the 2018 Advanced Engineering Show

Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies News and PR from Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies - Published 08 January 2019 In 2019 saw the 10th anniversary of the Advanced Engineering Show, one of the biggest engineering and industrial based trade shows in the UK.
Based at the NEC, Birmingham, the show brought together SMEs and international corporations for two days of extensive networking opportunities, professionally led seminars and talks, and a chance to catch up on the latest industry news.

As long time exhibitors, Curtiss Wright Surface Technologies also attended the show for the 10th time in order to showcase their wide ranging portfolio of material based solutions. Curtiss Wright, a subsidiary of the Curtiss Wright Corporation, boast a global network with over 70 locations, providing material surface treatments, protective coatings, high tech processes and much more for the aerospace, automotive, oil & gas, subsea, medical, and power generation sectors.

At the show, they demonstrated the practical applications and benefits of their services, such as Controlled Shot Peening which is excellent for reducing fatigue and stress corrosion cracking, shot peen forming for creating curvature in aircraft wing skins, laser peening, CASE Isotropic finishing, parylene conformal coatings, and much more.

Among their lauded engineering coating services, Curtiss Wright also offer thermal spray coating, which proved to be one of their main draws at the Advanced Engineering show. Their thermal spray and High Velocity Oxygen Fuel spray coatings can be seen in use throughout aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, and much more. Essentially, thermal coatings offer a cost effective and high performance alternative to hard chrome plating, providing a finish that protects metals from heat, wear, oxidation and corrosion. Attendees of the show were particularly impressed by the many advantages gained by HVOF thermal spray coating, including how it can be used with metals, alloys, ceramics and carbides. Not only that, but it is also shown to provide outstanding bond strength to withstand against extreme mechanical loads and more.

At the show, Curtiss Wright also received rave reviews for their Solid Film Lubricant and Liquid Component Coatings which provide long lasting lubrication, and protection against friction and galling within harsh operating environments.
