Viking Blast & Wash Systems announced the release of its new and improved Spinner Hanger, the SH 2560. This machine is said to provide versatility in blasting a range of part sizes and shapes on a continuous basis. The SH 2560 features more horsepower with two, 15 HP VC-1, 3525 RPM, direct drive blast wheels. This machine is designed to remove scale, corrosion, rust and paint by indexing three, 25-inch by 60-inch work envelopes, exposing the parts to the 2 blast wheels. Safety light curtains protect operators from rotating drum. Additionally, the wheel housing is wear lined with 1/2" thick replaceable, cast chrome wear plates. The SH 2560 also uses a heavy-duty abrasive recycling system with an air wash separator that cleans the abrasive prior to blasting.

    Immersion tin and lead-free hot air solder leveling (HASL) coatings based on SnCu or SnAgCu alloys are widely used as surface finish materials for printed circuit boards (PCB). These coatings prevent the underlying copper from corrosion and preserve its solderability during lead-free assembly processes and for a long storage life of PCBs.

    Surface finish types for commercially supplied stainless steel sheet are detailed in various standards. ASTM A480-12 and EN10088-2 are two; BS 1449-2 (1983) is still available, although no longer active. These standards are very similar in that they define eight grades of surface finish for stainless steel. Grade 7 is “buff polished,” while the highest polish—the so-called mirror polish—is designated Grade 8
