Restoring Tolerance to Wheel Hub Bolt Holes

Off highway vehicles face demanding environments. And every component of that vehicle is essential. For the largest coal mining operation in Kalimantan, Indonesia, that critical component was a wheel hub assembly. The wheel hub assembly allows the vehicle to steer freely, and is critical to the anti-lock braking and traction control systems. But when a […]

How to plate non-line of sight applications

How to plate non-line of sight applications

The plating process plays a very important part across a range of industries, from aerospace to oil and gas and power generation. It’s easy to presume that selective plating or tank plating should be able to plate every component and complex part possible. However, there are instances where both of these processes are unsuitable due […]
