Rösler UK’s ‘significant investment’ enhances its aerospace offer

Mass finishing specialist Rösler UK is ready to grow its presence in the North West aerospace sector after securing new accreditation.

Based in Knowsley, Rösler UK is focused on mass finishing and shot blasting technology and is a well-known and trusted supplier to the aerospace, medical and Formula 1 sectors as well as multi-national and small engineering companies.

Mass finishing or shot blasting is an industrial process which focuses on the surface finishing of plastic or metal parts. Rösler UK’s expertise offers aerospace manufacturers the kind of exacting standards required for an industry where the efficient working of multiple components is critical in meeting stringent safety standards.

The business has supplied equipment and systems for all types of aero-engine components, including airframe, landing gear and control system OEMs. Thanks to the renewed ISO and new AS9100D and BS EN ISO 9001:2015 accreditation, Rösler UK can now offer sub-contracted services directly rather than customers having to invest in expensive capital plant.

At the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, Rösler UK saw an initial slowdown in activity as a number of clients put work on hold. However, the company decided to make good use of the time by upgrading its equipment. This now means it has enhanced its offer as the economy starts to accelerate again.

Daniel Tweer, managing director at Rösler UK, said: “Our customers work in sectors where innovation and adaptability are key to continued growth. So it is vital for us to also be forward-looking and seek ways of enhancing our offer.

“2020 was a difficult time for many businesses and we were no exception. So we decided to use the down time to make a significant investment in our business and we believe it makes us even stronger as many countries now steadily lift their restrictions.”

Rösler UK’s expert sub-contracting team has, at its disposal, more than 40 machines for mass finishing, shot blasting, centrifugal finishing and drag finishing. Daniel added: “We have recently invested in new specialist AM finishing equipment to complement and extend our in-house finishing/preparation capabilities.

Dave Williams, head of Subcon said “With a combined total of 80 years’ experience we are confident we have the knowledge, expertise and the support of the Rösler Group to enable us to react to customer demands and expectations, to offer the best options in mechanical surface finishing.”

Those options include, for instance, deburring, creating controlled edge radii, improving Ra for gas flow or reducing friction. Shot blast services include suction-fed, pressure pot and wheel blasting for coating or oxide removal, bond preparation.

Having the latest AS9100D standard in place and gaining the certification will allow Rösler UK to actively market and approach companies who have AS 9100D as a requirement of doing business with them. Armed with this enhanced offer, the business is confident it can win new business and expand on the services it currently offers.

“We invite businesses in the aerospace, medical, Formula 1, as well engineering firms of all sizes, to come and talk to Rösler UK about our enhanced sub-contracted finishing service,” said Daniel.

“Our new investment demonstrates to existing and potential customers that Rösler UK has a safe and robust quality management system in place to AS9100D standard.”
