Everything you need to know about surface treatment

Setting up a manufacturing business requires a lot of planning. You will have to consider what you want to produce, your target customers, and most importantly, the production method you wish to adopt. It is at this stage where you start making plans about the type of equipment you will be using for the production process. 

Depending on the industry you want to operate in, one area you cannot handle with kids’ gloves is when it comes to buying machinery and maintaining your machines. 

Indeed, you will be bringing efficient staff and operators to handle every segment of the factory operation. Still, your effort may go down the drain if there is no adequate provision to forestall frequent machine breakdowns. Don’t forget that if any machine breaks down, it will slow down the production output pace, which may hinder your ability to meet up with your customers’ needs. 

As you read along, you shall be getting information about surface treatment and how to effectively perform it on your machinery for efficient output and durability. 

The main idea behind the application of surface treatment stems down from the need to increase protection against any form of corrosion or tear and wear on any part of machinery before they finally assemble. The three-part procedure which includes corona, rotor spray, and drying technology makes room for improvement on the appearance, corrects any form of imperfection that may arise during the manufacturing process, and most importantly to protect the machine from any form of corrosion. 

  • Drying Technology: 

This process is associated with the procedure of removing excess water from any treated surface in preparation for adhesive application or additional treatment operation. 

What will determine the drying process will be the type of dried material. A good example is iron alloys. When iron alloys become overexposed to slow drying, corrosion will set in. Hence, the best practice is to conduct the drying process in an inert gaseous atmospheric condition to eliminate any corrosion element. 

  • Rotor Spray

The best way to restore the dimensions of a component that has worn out, breakdown as a result of corrosion is through the application of rotor spray. This procedure does not possess the capacity to restore any component fully. Still, it is ideal because it is quick and economical when it relates to the restoration of a dimension of parts of your machine.

  • Corona 

This treating procedure focuses on increasing the efficiency of the surface energy of any form of plastic films, paper, and foils to improve the area of adhesion of inks and coatings. When this procedure is in place, it improves the printing quality and coatings quality.

Benefits of surface treatment

  • Improve lifespan 

Industrial Machines are for long-term purposes, but if you want to enjoy their services, there is a need for you to maintain them frequently. The greatest threat to the long-term use of any machine is corrosion, and that is why you need to implement surface treatment on all your plants. Once the rate of corrosion falls, you can rest assured that your machine will be in your service for a long time. 

  • Wear and tear resistance 

Once a machine has been deployed for the operation, have it at the back of your mind that aging is already creeping. The surface treatment is a great agent of ant-tear-ware. It helps to keep different parts of your machine in good condition, saving your checkbook from expenses arising from maintenance. 

  • Corrosion prevention

Just as cancer is an agent of destruction to the human body, so is corrosion to any machine’s health. When it comes to shielding your equipment from any form of corrosion, surface treatment gives you the best resistance deal you can ever get.

  • Reduce the cost of maintenance

Any business owner and manager aim to find a way to reduce the cost to the barest minimum. But if you do not maintain your machine through frequent servicing, you are most likely exposing them to corrosion. Surface treatment reduces the rate of the exposure of your equipment to humidity and oxygen that causes a systematic breakdown.

  • Reduction in friction

The best way to protect your machine parts from frequent friction is through surface treatment. It offers you the best insurance not only for the machine as a whole but also protects your workers that will be operating it on a day-to-day basis.

  • Reduce Drag

To deter the development of barnacles and green growth, you need to implement a treatment surface.

Surface treatment as a preventive and maintenance technique has existed for decades and is still widely used in industries for machine servicing and maintenance. To keep production moving at a profitable pace, it is important that your machines are always in top shape.
