    Satinising

Sandwell UK Ltd is a highly professional company focused on specialist surface engineering solutions for top level clients. Our specialist skillset and excellent product knowledge in Shot Peening technologies, Surface Engineering and Engineering Technology & Innovation are the key to the company’s success. We are always pushing surface finishing boundaries with new innovative techniques, whilst always meeting our customers needs and expectations.

Shot peening is the process of impacting materials with spherical media to impart energy to the surface of a component. The amount of stress imparted to the material is proportional to the amount of energy applied. more..

Bead blasting is the surface engineering process of either glass bead blasting or ceramic bead blasting at a surface to improve its general surface finish or to remove surface contaminates. more..

Our satinising surface engineering process employs a range of in-house media processes to produce the surface finish you require. Typically the process of gently blasting the surface with a glass bead media will enhance the finish of machined parts and produce a bright, non-glare and finely textured subtle surface finish. more..

The Chemi Blacking surface engineering process is most effective on most low and high alloy steels with the exception of high chrome austenitic and martensitic stainless steels. It produces a lustre finish dependent on base material condition that doesn’t significantly affect frictional properties. more..

Our superfinishing surface engineering process is designed to refine and polish surfaces to enhance component performance. This is an engineered finish with the benefit of producing a low friction surface that reduces rolling resistance. more..
