Blacksburg, Virginia- September 14, 2009.  Cutting Tool Engineering Magazine reported on Schultz-Creehan LLC’s metal coating and joining method that provides superior bond strength.   The Reverse Machining (.pdf) article focuses on Schultz-Creehan’s ability to repair high-value metal parts for the Navy which cannot be repaired by traditional means such as welding.

Schultz-Creehan's Metal Coating and Joining Technology Showcased in Cutting Tool Engineering Magazine The magazine reports on the development of “this process for the Office of Naval Research, focusing on depositing aluminum alloy coatings onto aluminum alloy substrates because the Navy is interested in lightening ships and vehicles.” The additional benefits of the Frictioncoat technology is “the coating’s bond strength is equivalent to that of the base metal” and “there is a near zero porosity and the lack of oxide content allows the coating to be machined.”  Schultz-Creehan is able to master specialized materials science and industrial engineering services as a result of its knowledgeable engineering team and cutting edge equipment.

Cutting Tool Engineering Magazine publishes information to help manufacturing professionals with productivity in machining operations. The magazine is the only monthly publication exclusively focusing on these subject areas and providing editorials highlighting all aspects of the machining process.
