Groundbreaking ceremony for Rösler's new preservation line.

 

Rösler Metal Finishing (Battle Creek, Michigan) has begun construction on a preservation line for General Dynamics NASSCO in San Diego, California, which designs and constructs ships for the U.S. Navy, as well as oil tankers and dry cargo carriers for commercial markets. This line will replace NASSCO’s original line and will be used to blast clean and coat the surface of steel sheets and structural shapes prior to cutting and welding. Rösler’s line is designed to operate about 30 percent faster, improve blast and paint quality, handle larger plates and eliminate emissions, creating a more efficient and environmentally friendly process. The line is on schedule to run starting in July of 2016.
