Our supplemental core processes keep your products protected longer and your business operations humming.

We offer a full spectrum of supplemental processes to keep your products performing optimally. Our progressive supplemental services provide the manufacturing support and thermal protection you can only find at CTS.

Plasma Transferred Arc

Dry Film Lubrication (DFL)

Reduce Surface Friction

At CTS, our Dry Film Lube process reduces friction between surfaces, helping prevent seizing and galling within your product’s parts.

Protect your products from the most extreme environmental fluctuations in temperature and pressure, and high-revolution mechanisms.

Our dry film lube applications also protect against corrosion resistance, atmospheric and cathodic environments, and use chemical friction engineering to address fretting, galling, and anti-skid/traction issues that typically arise in extreme thermal environments. For high-temperature dry film applications, we also incorporate tribological coatings to protect the surfaces of components and improve surface properties such as wear resistance, wear corrosion, and scratch resistance.

Shot Peen

Prevent Stress Corrosion Failures

Shot peening is a cold work process used to finish metal parts that prevent stress corrosion failure, alleviate abrasions, reduce friction, and extends the overall life of your parts and components.

We offer shot peen services that address these mechanical properties along with compressive residual stress and fatigue while providing a highly productive environment that improves your parts’ performance.

By utilizing round metallic, glass, or ceramic particles for our shot peens combined with highly-impactful surface force, we are able to create a compressive residual stress layer that modifies the shot’s mechanical properties to produce a highly non-corrosive finish for any part or component.

Heat Treatment

Add Value To Your Parts & Components

Our advanced heat treatment services offer unparalleled technical expertise and state-of-the-art thermal protective equipment.

Each of our CTS facilities has aligned its production needs with local heat treatment vendors that are logistically and strategically capable of supporting our clients’ needs with on-time delivery and cost-effective pricing that works for your budget.

All work accomplished by our heat treat partners meets and exceeds industry-standard regulations, is compliant with all customer, OEM, and regulatory market requirements, and is backed by our team of professionally certified engineers and research experts.
