Project Brief: Degreasing, cleaning and peened finish for a high volume of stainless steel trays for use in sleep apnoea/CPAP machines
Organisation: Harrington Industries, Resmed
Finish: Wet blasting/glass bead blasting
DECO’s Industrial team have provided services to Harrington Industries, a local engineering firm providing quality metal pressing services, for several years. When Harrington began producing trays for ResMed’s sleep apnoea/CPAP machines, they sought out the DECO Industrial team’s quality finishing services to help complete the job.
The original aluminium trays were anodised, and DECO’s Industrial team built custom pallets of titanium and plastic racks to more effectively coat the products.
When ResMed changed over to using stainless steel trays, Harrington sought out a wet blasted finish from DECO Industrial, that would effectively clean, degrease and add a smooth, peened finish to the parts. DECO’s Industrial team rose to the challenge, creating a bespoke line for the new orders, updating it as the customer’s needs changed.
This has expanded over time, and DECO Industrial now runs 3 custom built glass bead blasting process lines. Thousands of sleep apnoea tubs in two different shapes are degreased, cleaned, rinsed, blasted, inspected and packed, making for an efficient and thorough service that ensures all parts are hygienic, free from sharp edges and surface contaminants, and suitable for use in ResMed’s quality CPAP machines.
With high volume blasting capability, rapid turnaround times, thorough, quality-controlled processes and a willingness to create custom lines as needed, DECO Industrial can come up with a solution to your medical machinery needs.
