Sub-Harmonic Vibratory Stress Relief Bonal manufactures the Meta-Lax Vibration Stress Relief Technology for the purpose of metal stress relieving. Meta-Lax is a patented stress relief process which according to the US Dept. of Energy is a “proven substitute to 80-90% of heat treat stress relief applications yet saves 65-95% of the time and cost in doing so without sacrificing quality!”
Meta-Lax - A Patented Process The patented Meta-Lax technology is unique in the vibratory stress relief industry in that Meta-Lax is the ONLY vsr process that produces “consistently” effective results. It also is the only vsr process that uses sub-harmonic energy and can certify that stress relieving is complete.
Meta-Lax Technology - During Welding Furthermore, Meta-Lax processing can be used during welding (Weld Conditioning) to prevent 50-95% of weld distortion and cracking while improving overall quality. That will save you straightening, rework, and scrap.
