When it comes to steel manufacturing, or manufacturing equipment with steel, there are many logistical nightmares. Often times steel is coated with an RPO or a primer/paint to inhibit oxidation during transportation or storage.
In order to be able to work with the steel it needs to be cleaned and be free of any surface contaminates to ensure good welds or paint adhesion. The traditional methods are quite messy and create a lot of waste.
Whether its blasting, grinding or washing with emulsifiers, all of them have there set backs.
Laser is an excellent solution. It can be automated or manually operated, is dry and does not affect the substrate, leaves no mess and is safe and reliable. Please contact us with any questions.
