Astro Machine Works Adds Vibratory Stress Relief Service for Increased Quality Control

Astro Machine Works, located in Ephrata, PA is constantly adding capabilities to better service its customers and to insure exceptional quality control. The Meta-Lax Stress Relief removes thermal stress from metal parts. Thermal stress can be caused by sharp temperature drops in metal, creating problems of distortion and premature cracking. This typically occurs immediately following machining or over time. “Stress relieving” reduces these effects.

The Meta-Lax® is the world’s most consistent vibratory stress relief for metal structures. The patented sub-harmonic Meta-Lax process is the only vibratory stress relief process that is consistently effective in comparison to thermal stress relief. Meta-Lax consistently achieves equal to or better results than thermal stress relief.
