Transmet Corp. has completed an expansion in its zinc cast shot manufacturing facility. The Columbus, Ohio, company manufactures cast zinc shot for blast cleaning markets in die casting, paint removal and automotive component remanufacturing. The expansion and improvements focused mainly on the collection and classification of cast zinc shot for packaging, says Tom Fee, senior sales engineer.
“The improvements will enable increased production while improving operator safety,” he says.
The project was financed internally along with a grant from the Ohio Bureau of Workers Compensation. The equipment was designed by Applied Engineering Solutions of Columbus. Specialized machining was performed by Crist’s Machining of Lancaster, Ohio, and installation by H.I.P. Mobile Welding of Stoutsville, Ohio.
