Wallwork solve material, treatment and surface engineering problems in aerospace, automotive, motorsport, medical device, oil and gas. 50 commercial vehicles ensure fast reliable turnaround.

Aerospace approved thermal treatments, include vacuum, age, case and precipitation harden, solution treatment, gas and plasma nitride. Annealing includes alloy steel, stainless steel, aluminium alloy, titanium alloy and magnesium alloy. Approvals: AS9100, NADCAP, OEMs Rolls-Royce, BAE, Airbus, Safran, Bombardier, Boeing and Moog.

Hard coatings extend mould and tool life and enable higher cutting speeds. Coated motorsport parts allow engines to run hotter, faster and longer, with lower friction. Coatings for aerospace components reduce fuel use and extend engine on-wing time. Medical coatings enhance the surfaces of implant and surgical devices.

Vacuum brazing joins similar and dissimilar materials. Void free and leak proof joints promote joint strength and integrity. Processed under a vacuum, it reduces residual stresses, allowing other heat treatments to take place.

Using 3D models and CNC patterns, we make durable heat resistant Ni/Cr castings and fixtures, in short lead times. Light-weight to save energy, these resist distortion and cracking.

In-house testing and quality monitors our processes. We provide investigative and failure analysis services; material science experts produce accurate reports that help you solve surface engineering problems.

Other services include decorative coatings of jewellery and architectural components. Nitron CA coatings provide a new and safe environmentally friendly alternative to hard chromium plating. We are the UK provider of Cemecon tool coating processes. We design and make our own vacuum coating systems and bespoke kit for customers.

  • Further Rolls-Royce Approval

    Following on from Rolls-Royce approval at Wallwork's Bury site, Cambridge has secured the company’s approval for vacuum brazing, Plasma nitriding and Heat Treatment. These processes are seeing soaring demand and we are making significant investments to ensure Wallwork is the go to company for these processes.


  • Dougie Lampkin Hot Lap of Wallwork Heat Treatment Works

    It is clear why Dougie is a twelve times Trial World Champion. His thrilling two minute ride through our Manchester heat treatment plant proves there is no obstacle too high – or too hot!. It is an exciting and engaging way to show a brief glimpse into the world of metal heat treatment.


  • Additive Manufacturing: Vacuum Brazing White Paper

    Amid all the hype about 3D printed components it is easy to forget that there is a proven, versatile and technically capable additive process – vacuum brazing – that can address multiple challenges. This is the theme of a new Wallwork white paper.
