News- 5th Generation of Surfox 205 and Mini

Walter Surface Technologies the global industry leader in surface treatment technologies, has announced the launch of their new Surfox™ 205 and Surfox™ Mini TIG and spot weld cleaning system.

Underscoring Walters’s commitment to innovation and to develop safer alternatives for the metalworking industry, this new generation of Surfox™ 205 uses an electrochemical process to clean and passivate TIG and spot welds on stainless steel, aluminum and titanium. The redesigned machine is exceptionally powerful, rugged and replaces time-consuming manual operations such as mechanical abrasion or extremely hazardous solutions like pickling paste.

Like the Surfox™ 205, the redesigned Mini Surfox™ has been engineered to allow operators to clean TIG or spot welds on aluminum and stainless steel to a perfect finish even on the most delicate surfaces. This durable unit is compact, portable and lightweight which makes it ideal for every day field work including equipment repair, installation or touch-up.

“Electrochemical cleaning is by far the safest and most efficient method of removing heat tint and other contaminants from stainless steel surfaces” stated Jonathan Douville Senior Product Manager for Surfox™. “What is unique about the new generation of Surfox™ machines is that we are now able and have the patent to use both the 205 and the Mini to mark stainless, aluminum in black and titanium in blue.”

The benefit from using our electrochemical systems is a safer, healthier industrial environment for the worker and a more efficient work process that lowers consumable costs yet produces a high standard of cleaning, and consistent finish on stainless steel, aluminum and titanium. Our Surfox™ systems are ideal for any industry where stainless and aluminium are found including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, architectural and transportation.

From portability, marking, etching, cleaning, and polishing, Walter’s Surfox™ portfolio of products provides users a complete, economical and comprehensive line of products from which to choose. The Surfox™ family addresses the industries weld cleaning and passivation requirements to not affect the parent material’s surface.
