ERW is a full service thermal spray masking company serving the needs of the industrial gas turbine, aerospace, and mass transit industries.

Established in 1985 by Eric and Robin Whittenburg with a main objective of supplying fixtures and masking to the thermal spray industry. From our early beginnings working out of a small 2,500 sq. ft. storage building until today our focus has always been on customer satisfaction. In the last ten years we have invested in new equipment technologies and capacity. Today we are in two locations with a total of 27,000 sq ft in the Putnam industrial park, serving a wide base of customers and industries.

In this fast paced world of thermal coatings, ERW produces solutions to help increase production while reducing labor associated with masking of parts. ERW produces many custom clips to allow the operator to install during the coating cycle. Sheet metal clips and masks won't leave any residue as with the removal of tape masking. While sheet metal masking will not solve all problems we would invite you to allow us to quote on any present or future masking projects.

No matter where you're based, we make it easy to work with us via internet, email or special file transfer. Our systems are compatible with virtually all software programs including Solidworks, CadKey, CamWorks, and UniGraphics.

With years of experience behind us, ERW has reduced lead times significantly. The total process from quotation to prototype or production can often be completed in a matter of weeks as opposed to months. Taking advantage of our website for a preliminary quote can improve turn-around time even more.

ERW's shop management system allows us to provide instant updates on your job's status. Our customer service representatives are knowledgeable and responsive, when you need us we're there.

After your job is completed, we keep your tooling on file, compounding your cost savings over time.
