Lead & Asbestos Removal By Descaling

When removing these dangerous coatings from a busy metropolitan rail station, time is of the essence. Workers must be protected from contaminant dust in the air and serious vibration-related injuries related to power tool use. CS Unitec has just the tools for the job: reliable, low-vibration needle scalers allow operators to comfortably work a full shift and get the job done fast.

Maintenance and repair of protective coatings is a constant process on any oceangoing vessel. Given the corrosive nature of seawater and the constant movement of cargo and crew, regularly scheduled maintenance is critical to keeping a vessel in service. Having the right surface preparation tools for the removal of coatings and corrosion can make all the difference on a vessel and reduce expensive future repairs.

In tire manufacturing, plant maintenance can be a real headache. In this case, Goodyear's tire manufacturing lead to a large buildup of rubber that needed to be removed from plant floors in order to keep production going. Goodyear had tried manual processes, but they were time consuming, ineffective and laborious. Fortunately, the long-reach light chisel scraper was perfect for the job and allowed Goodyear to quickly remove rubber buildup while minimizing the impact to production.

Using needle scaler to restore USS Pampanito

When a dedicated team of volunteers is responsible for restoring a national treasure to its former glory, their job should be as stress-free as possible – not a physically taxing endeavor leaving them susceptible to vibration-related injury. Fortunately, CS Unitec has a line of low-vibration needle scalers that allowed the volunteers to work longer and safer.

MAB 485 Portable Magnetic Drill Drilling Holes

CS Unitec was approached by Big Imagination to assist in specifying and supplying a drill and lubricant to cut holes in the titanium wing beams of a Boeing 747. This is the story of the 747 project and how CS Unitec and Big Imagination collaborated to drill two hundred and thirty-two 5/8” diameter holes through 2” thick aerospace-grade titanium.

CS Unitec mixer used to restore steps at Alcatraz Island

Creating the perfect mix is always important when repairing concrete – especially so when preserving a national historic landmark – but the task is much easier when outfitted with reliable, high-performance equipment. Eight Concrete Industry Management (CIM) degree students from California State University, Chico (CSU Chico) learned that lesson first-hand this summer while working on Alcatraz Island.
