FICEP has a long experience in supplying complete manufacturing systems that includes complementary processes to drilling, sawing, coping, punching and shearing. Since more than twenty years the FICEP organisation have been supplying, together with the well known FICEP equipment, wheelblasting roller conveyor machines and painting systems.
The use of shotblasting equipment is very common in Europe and is getting more and more introduced in line with the comprehensive FICEP equipment all over the world.
The need to satisfy more and more strict finished painting quality acceptance methods from the main contractors and clients pushed the fabricators to introduce shotblasting as a must requirement previous to painting.
Whether is just a need of priming or top coating, shotblasting before painting has proven to be the best process to obtain outstanding painting quality.
The H-I-U etc. rolled steel sections are the supporting frame of all the modern civil and industrial building construction. Together with gusset plates, fin plates, end plates etc., they become the assemblies that constitutes the bones of the latest infrastructures.
It goes without saying that good shotblasting and painting techniques make maintenance of building less frequent and give a better look and aesthetic. It is for this reason that after a collaboration of more than ten years FICEP and Wheelabrator have signed a technology partnership to bring to the market the most performant solutions both in shotblasting and painting.
