With over 150 years of combined experience Straaltechniek UK can offer extensive Equipment Modernisation Programmes for all types of Surface Preparation Blasting & Shot Peening Equipment. at a fraction of the cost of new installations.
Why EMP? Jay Dorling (Sales Director) at Straaltechniek UK explained ‘that many of our customers we service and supply spare parts to have older generation shot blast and shot peening machines and although well maintained by the Straaltechniek UK Service Division for various reasons do not fulfil the latest health & safety legislation and increased production demands of improved modern day processes.
This usually results in the request for significant capital investment for the latest new design modern replacements.
However, in highly competitive industries this investment may not be forthcoming straight away but in the short & medium term all is not lost! Older machines can be retrofitted and upgraded with the latest technology.’
