Corrosion occurs naturally and unavoidably.

The chances are you would have seen corrosion before, and will know that the process produces a less desirable material from the original metal and can result in a loss of function of the component or system. The corrosion product we see most commonly is the rust which forms on the surface of steel.

Here's a guide, originally compiled in the Beginners Guide to Corrosion, to 15 of the most common forms of corrosion found on-site.

In focus: Bespoke turning machine for the best shaft journal repair

Posted by Simon Pownall on Aug 18, 2014 12:59:00 PM

In a new feature for the Mirage blog we'll be taking an in-depth look at a specific portable machine tool. This week we take a look at the MST300-915 Bespoke Turning Machine for shaft journal repair.

When it comes to shaft journal repair, the days of off-site repair and assembly are thankfully a thing of the past. Particularly for the shipbuilding sector, on-site machinery has meant repair times have been significantly cut, and so too have the costs associated with off-site machinery.

As many search for the perfect portable machinery which is fast and has a high accuracy tolerance, we take a look at the MST300-915 in depth to see what Mirage Machines have done to combat shaft journal repair effectively.
