Midvale Industries specializes in aerospace maintenance and manufacturing applications to keep your aircraft flying longer. We are innovators of environmentally friendly practices, organic abrasive, and custom engineered processes to make sure you achieve the smoothest surfaces without harming metal or composites.
Aerospace Coating Removal
Remove any coating from any type of surface using our environmentally friendly selective stripping process.
Composite Bond Prep
Create a clean, even etched finish with no media embedment to prepare your composites for the bonding process.
Composite Tool Cleaning
Safely and effectively clean your tooling and molding while reducing costs and wear caused by hand sanding.
Metal Bond Deflash
Quickly remove excess adhesive without damaging the underlying surface, including aluminum and composites.
More Aerospace Applications & Services
Mobile Blast Room Demo
Midvale has a mobile demo truck fully equipped with a blast room to process sample parts or help properly train your staff. Talk to our team about process development, testing samples or scheduling our truck to come to your facility for training.
We offer air and wheel blast systems for peening high stress parts like gears, springs, drive shafts, axles and more. Round abrasives such as cast steel, ceramic, glass, and stainless steel shot are used to create uniformed compressive stress layers to prolong service life and reduce part failure. Peening also straightens parts that have been bent during heat treatment and machining.
Other Benefits of Peening
- Offsetting tensile stresses and changes in tensile strength due to grinding and chrome plating
- Reducing porosity in castings that could lead to leakage of fluids
- Improved oil retention on pistons, cylinders, and bearings due to small indentations created by media
