Our vast expertise in manual welding and our many welding plants on site together give Nichol McKay the versatility to tackle any task. We can take care of all MIG, TIG, stud, spot and projection welding needs.
Wheelabrator shot blaster: 800kg load capacity, 2m3 size capacity
Manual shot blaster: 6m L x 2.5m H x 2.5m W
Our fully automated powder coating system uses a three-stage iron phosphate pre-treatment. We can also apply two stage powder systems. Capacity 3.2m L x 1.3m H x 1m W
To meet customer demand, we operate two wet painting plants, one plant is a semi-automated 2 stage indexing system. Again, this reduces waste and maximises our wet paint capacity, letting us offer a faster turnaround than we could with an entirely manual system. However, to ensure maximum quality, we always hand-finish components. Capacity 4m L x 1.6m H x 1.6m W
Our second wet paint plant is for very large components and comprises a very large spray booth with separate oven.
Capacity 9m L x 4m H x 4m W capable of painting a 20' ISO Containerised Housing.
Hydraulic / Diesel Tank Cleaning
To meet the extreme cleanliness demands of our hydraulic tank customers, we operate a sophisticated tank washing plant capable of achieving ISO 4406 Cleanliness Code. Post manufacture, the tanks are washed internally using a saline and detergent mix and the effluent is inspected under a microscope for particulate contamination which is progressively measured to comply with the given standard. The tanks are then hermetically sealed to prevent any contamination. This maximises the reliability of hydraulic systems, by minimising component failure and warranty costs.
