A successful Technical Seminar was held in June at Schulz Foundry, one of the biggest air compressor manufacturers in Brazil. They started in the foundry industry producing parts for their compressors and, after that, extended their range of products for the automotive industry, the most important Brazilian sector today after the agricultural sector.
 
Schulz was one of the first customers where we were successful in implementing the HPG in 2007, providing important gains in productivity, a fact that has kept them faithful to our product since then. The HPG, which means High Performance Grit, is a steel grit specially designed to improve shot blasting performance in foundries and forges. It works faster and lasts longer. Its characteristics give a higher cleaning efficiency on external parts, a higher cleaning efficiency of internal surfaces with smaller holes and geometry details, and a controlled and consistent surface profile. 
 


 

As a leading service partner, we provide regular visits and give annual training to entire teams involved in the Blasting Process such as operators, quality, maintenance, and process coordinators.
The main issue of this kind of event is to ensure that our customers have an efficient process control, such as separator settings or abrasive feeding to keep a good control of the operating mix. 
 
Thanks to the information provided throughout the training and discussions about the problems found during the machine checks, we were able to instruct how to correct and maintain a good process control.
Our expertise allows Schulz to reduce costs and improve blasting productivity and parts cleanliness.
We thank Schulz for trusting in our Walue team, and we hope our partnership will last for a long time.
