Finishing Yearbook 2023

Welcome to the 45th edition of the Finishing Industries Yearbook – the essential guide for everyone involved in the UK surface treatment industry. 2022 has been another challenging year. We have experienced rapid changes economically, politically and with the sad passing of HRH Queen Elizabeth II, constitutionally too. Now with a new king and a new prime minster, we must remain optimistic. However if 2022 has taught us anything, it is that the spirit of British industry remains as strong as it has ever been. We hope that you find this edition an invaluable aid to sourcing suppliers to provide the solution to your specific needs. It is used by the whole buying chain from trade finishing houses to manufacturers of a wide variety of products from white goods to automotive. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the businesses that have contributed to the compilation of this yearbook. If you have any comments, suggestions or would like to be included in the next edition, please email me at b.williams@turretgroup.com. The Finishing Industries Team wish you all the very best for 2023!

SLOTOLOY ZN „Generation VX“<br />

The alkaline zinc-nickel processes SLOTOLOY ZN „Generation VX“ are operated with an anode (special anode VX 1)<br />

specially adapted to the process and respective additives. Because of this, the formation of breakdown products and cyanide<br />

on the anode is inhibited. The practical application at customers showed in converted electrolytes that even the cyanide<br />

content is reduced actively.<br />

Advantages of the zinc-nickel<br />

processes „Generation VX”<br />

· No cost-intensive membrane technology necessary.<br />

· Improvement of current efficiency and appearance.<br />

· Simple conversion of existing electrolytes.<br />

· Low additive consumption.<br />

· The formation of cyanide is significantly reduced and<br />

may falls below the detection limit.<br />

· Since there’s less non-active tetracyanonickelate there’s<br />

a lower demand of nickel.<br />

Manual Ion Exchange Treatment &<br />

Regeneration Systems for Trivalent<br />

Chrome Plating<br />

For successful trivalent chromium plating bath<br />

operation, SERFILCO provides simple, cost-effective<br />

equipment to remove copper, nickel and zinc from<br />

the bath without interrupting bath operation. The<br />

benefits gained include the following:<br />

• Copper, zinc and nickel ions are all removed<br />

from the bath smultaneously.<br />

• Treatment can be done during bath operation<br />

(no shutdown time required).<br />

• Treatment can be done continuously or<br />

intermittently depending on need.<br />

• The treatment units are small and usually can<br />

be located right at the plating tank.<br />

• Treatment is simple, consisting of pumping<br />

solution from the tank, through the treatment<br />

unit and back to the tank.<br />

• Regeneration of the ion exchange resin takes<br />

about two hours and occurs about every week<br />

to two weeks for a properly sized treatment<br />

unit.<br />

• Options exist for acid, alkaline and de-min water<br />

feeds for regeneration.<br />

the new world in which we live.<br />

n The British Allied Trades Federation (BATF), of which The Surface<br />

Engineering Association is a federated association, commissioned a<br />

piece of silverware, to add to its collection, to commemorate the<br />

Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II in June 2022.<br />

n Powder coatings are essential to the future evolution of Electric<br />

Vehicles (EVs), protecting batteries and associated components from<br />

overheating and insulating them against other threats that can reduce<br />

performance and increase risk.<br />

And powder coatings are doing more than just helping to prevent<br />

thermal runaways and the risk of battery failure in modern EVs. They<br />

are also supporting EV Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and<br />

tiers in creating a more sustainable manufacturing process, and<br />

compliance with stringent international environmental regulations and<br />

directives.<br />

These are two of the many themes explored in a new White Paper<br />

from AkzoNobel Powder Coatings entitled: ‘The critical importance of<br />

powder coatings in driving an electric future’.<br />

n Indestructible Paint Ltd<br />

n Over 150 senior decision-makers from the UK's paints, coatings and<br />

printing ink sectors gathered in Birmingham for the annual British<br />

Coatings Federation (BCF) Annual Conference.<br />

The opening keynote from the UK Government’s Business<br />

Department (BEIS) highlighted the government’s growth drivers and<br />

Net Zero ambitions for energy, chemicals and coatings.<br />

n From May 2022, decorative paints manufacturers will be able to<br />

(VOC) as part of the British Coatings Federation (BCF)’s VOC Globe<br />

scheme to improve communication to consumers highlighting which<br />

products have the lowest levels of VOCs. The TRACE globe will be used<br />

for products with VOC content of less than 0.1%.<br />

n AkzoNobel created a new dedicated microsite and resource centre<br />

for customers and specifiers of functional powder coatings to guide<br />

them through the selection process and learn how a Resicoat solution<br />

can support transformational change in scenarios where protection<br />

defines success.<br />

n During the QUALICOAT UK & Ireland conference held at the<br />

Building Centre in London, Chris Mansfield Commercial Director of<br />

Tomburn and licensed QUALICOAT Applicator, offered delegates<br />

an insight into the recently released BS EN 12206 for coated<br />

architectural aluminium having sat on the working group dealing with<br />

the revision.<br />

n Previous HSE research estimated that there are approximately 3000<br />

workers employed at around 450 companies in the Great Britain (GB)<br />

surface treatment industry who are potentially exposed to a range of<br />

carcinogens, asthmagens and skin sensitisers including nickel (Ni)<br />

compounds.<br />

Many of these workers are employed in small to medium sized<br />

enterprises.<br />

The work showed that exposure occurs by inhalation, absorption<br />

through the skin, by ingestion or any combination of these three routes.<br />

The research found that the most effective engineering control was to<br />

use eductors or add LEV to an air agitated tank. Using basic principles<br />

of occupational hygiene, the researchers identified that use of eductors<br />

was best because this eliminates emissions at source and is the most<br />

reliable option.<br />

8 COMPANY PROFILE<br />

FP Advanced invest in contouring technology with Gema<br />

to boost productivity.<br />

• Unique single chamber design<br />

means up to 50% percent less<br />

wear parts<br />

• Automatic colour change<br />

capabilities saves time<br />

• Automated cleaning for normal<br />

maintenance and colour<br />

change applications<br />

• Superior application performance<br />

from Gema’s patent* protected<br />

technology<br />

As part of the project the<br />

existing application guns were<br />

updated to the latest version, the<br />

gun quantity was increased to<br />

support a higher line speed. The<br />

automatic guns are mounted on<br />

Gema’s latest-generation dynamic<br />

contouring detection system, a<br />

proven innovation which is<br />

aspects combined have meant our<br />

productivity has increased by<br />

considerably more than 30%. The<br />

automation and component tracking<br />

from the contouring guns has<br />

been a game changer for our<br />

business, the operator manual<br />

coating intervention has been<br />

eliminated completely in many<br />

cases which is supporting a fully<br />

automated process for significant<br />

portions of the work which would<br />

traditionally have required two<br />

operators.<br />

Leon Hogg of Gema said ‘We<br />

were delighted to have secured<br />

this prestigious project and play a<br />

role in FP Advanced growth<br />

strategy. This contouring<br />

Technology is a fantastic<br />

innovation, and we are pleased to<br />

have many other installations<br />

planned for this year.’<br />

The Dynamic Contour<br />

Detection process is carried out in<br />

two steps;<br />

FP Advanced, formerly known<br />

as Foleshill Plating, are a Coventrybased<br />

company offering powder<br />

coating and E-coating services to<br />

some big OEM’s including some<br />

prestigious automotive brands. A<br />

long-standing Gema customer,<br />

they had reached a point where<br />

they were at maximum capacity,<br />

and it was time to upgrade their<br />

powder coating facility to increase<br />

throughput and position them for<br />

their next stage of growth.<br />

The latest installation comprises<br />

an OC07 OptiCentre complete<br />

with SIT pump technology, a<br />

product which is respected as the<br />

market leading solution for<br />

producing optimised powder<br />

application combined with stable<br />

and repeatable results with<br />

minimum operator intervention.<br />

Trying to produce an optimum<br />

powder spray pattern using an<br />

older high density, multi-channel<br />

pump is a challenge. “Puffing”<br />

and “surging” powder clouds<br />

must be constantly monitored<br />

and controls adjusted. OptiSpray<br />

and its Smart Inline Technology<br />

(SIT) design uses a revolutionary<br />

single channel powder path to<br />

accurately deliver powder and<br />

provide you with broader spray<br />

pattern management at the gun<br />

tip. This control offers the highest<br />

quality appearance for all types of<br />

powder coating material, even<br />

challenging special effect metallic<br />

and textured powders.<br />

Customer Benefits<br />

• Smart Inline Technology (SIT)<br />

can save you up to 15 percent<br />

in powder consumption<br />

• Improved penetration in<br />

recesses<br />

• Broad powder spray pattern<br />

control<br />

• Individual cloud control for each<br />

powder coating gun<br />

• Most compact application<br />

powder pump on the market<br />

• Inline design provides simple<br />

and ergonomic systems<br />

integration<br />

re-shaping the industry when it<br />

comes to automatic coating of<br />

complex geometries. Contouring<br />

supports independent movement<br />

of each gun on its own dedicated<br />

axis, coupled with a laser scanner<br />

this enables the guns to track<br />

product geometries and optimize<br />

the coating distance accordingly<br />

to deliver the coating result.<br />

Contouring is a truly game<br />

changing technology within the<br />

automatic powder coating space<br />

and facilitates customers to<br />

achieve automatic coating where<br />

it would have been previously<br />

impossible.<br />

Chris Waterhouse of FP<br />

Advanced said ‘We are delighted<br />

with the recent installation, it<br />

made sense with our initial<br />

calculations based on a 30%<br />

increase in productivity, we were<br />

running at full capacity working<br />

24 hours a day. With the<br />

additional guns and contouring<br />

system we have been able to<br />

increase the line speed, as well as<br />

reducing our colour change time<br />

with the OptiCentre, and these<br />

1. Scan: The laser scanners<br />

operate in a two-dimensional<br />

area. They measure distances to<br />

the obstacle and calculate the<br />

outline of the object. This data<br />

is tracked to the MagicControl<br />

4.0 unit.<br />

2. Spray: The scanned object<br />

shape is segmented and<br />

translated in an accurate axis<br />

position and individual gun<br />

adjustments. Each axis is<br />

independently positioned from<br />

each other.<br />

Many companies with a powder<br />

coating function are often<br />

convinced manual application is<br />

their best option, and that might<br />

have been the case prior to this<br />

development.<br />

12 COMPANY PROFILE<br />

NHE optimistic for an increase in Surface <strong>Finishing</strong> CAPEX<br />

investment projects<br />

Despite the slowdown due to the<br />

global COVID-19 pandemic,<br />

NHE remains fully aware that our<br />

industry is one that does not<br />

stand still. Under the recent<br />

difficult trading conditions<br />

experienced during the<br />

COVID-19 pandemic, many of<br />

our customers explored options<br />

to enhance and/or re-purpose<br />

their existing plant and process<br />

equipment to improve<br />

production capability, without<br />

risking new CAPEX investment<br />

projects during uncertain times.<br />

14 COMPANY PROFILE<br />

High-efficiency monocyclone saves energy and powder<br />

Many companies ask themselves<br />

how they can use less energy to<br />

reduce costs and protect the<br />

environment more. For powder<br />

coating, WAGNER has an<br />

excellent solution: the EEP series<br />

with its potential savings of up to<br />

40%.<br />

One of the biggest global<br />

trends is energy-saving. This also<br />

effects powder coating systems.<br />

Here, energy is needed directly in<br />

the form of electrical power, for<br />

example to drive motors, and<br />

also indirectly in the form of<br />

compressed air.<br />

Even in the past, WAGNER has<br />

used energy-efficient components<br />

and energy-optimised processes in<br />

its powder coating systems. They<br />

have a function, for example,<br />

which switches off the lifting<br />

devices in gaps, or only activates<br />

guns if a workpiece actually travels<br />

in front of it. This function is<br />

known as gap and height control.<br />

These savings may appear small,<br />

however they add up to a<br />

significant sum at the end of the<br />

year.<br />

Cutting energy costs for powder<br />

coating by up to 40 %<br />

The biggest energy consumer in<br />

powder coating, however,<br />

remained the fan motor in the<br />

final filter, which can consume up<br />

to 37 kW of power or even more<br />

at times. Now, WAGNER has<br />

developed a comprehensive<br />

energy-saving concept for this<br />

fan motor and successfully<br />

implemented it back in 2016 in<br />

the “EEP” monocyclone and final<br />

filter series. EEP stands for “Energy<br />

Efficiency Package”.<br />

In the EEP concept, two measures<br />

come together to reduce airflow<br />

resistance and therefore<br />

compressed air consumption: first<br />

is an optimised duct between the<br />

powder cabin and cyclone, and<br />

second is a special air guide within<br />

the monocyclone itself. With this<br />

setup, a smaller motor is sufficient<br />

to generate the same volume of<br />

suction. In this way the EEP series<br />

is able to reduce energy costs by<br />

up to 40 %.<br />

These values can be achieved<br />

by combining a high-efficiency<br />

monocyclone with a corresponding<br />

ductwork and matching filter to<br />

create the “Energy Efficiency<br />

Package” (EEP) (see illustration).<br />

Powder savings by boosting<br />

cyclone efficiency<br />

In addition to energy savings, the<br />

flow-optimised construction of the<br />

cyclone also increases the cyclone<br />

efficiency by 1-2%. This is a<br />

positive side effect that should not<br />

be under-estimated. Depending<br />

on the system configuration,<br />

powder savings can be quite<br />

considerable. In example<br />

calculations (see table), cost<br />

savings of 20% can be achieved.<br />

“Energy and powder savings are<br />

important for many industrial<br />

clients and their significance is<br />

increasing. Partly, of course, due to<br />

lower costs – but also because<br />

more and more companies have<br />

set themselves the goal of<br />

reducing their energy consumption<br />

to protect the environment.<br />

With the EEP series, we are able<br />

to help our clients to achieve these<br />

goals”, explains Michael Topp,<br />

Reducing energy costs and cutting down emissions<br />

with next generation cleaning solutions<br />

Businesses are striving towards<br />

ESG targets and methods that cut<br />

carbon emissions, make efficiencies<br />

and reduce overall costs as energy<br />

prices soar. In these cases, changing<br />

the chemicals and equipment<br />

used in the cleaning process can<br />

have a significant impact.<br />

The benefits of next generation<br />

solvents<br />

The significant advancements in<br />

industrial solvent cleaning, results<br />

in viable, safe, and cost effective<br />

solvents. One such product is<br />

Chemours’ Opteon SF80 which<br />

has an ultralow GWP of under 2.5,<br />

unlike common F-gas solvents<br />

that can have a maximum GWP<br />

of 11,000. SF80 is just as effective<br />

as these damaging competitor<br />

products – and can be more<br />

efficient – so changing can have<br />

a huge impact on lowering<br />

carbon emissions.<br />

Changing products can also<br />

save money. SF80 reduces weekly<br />

CO2 usage by 75%, reduces<br />

weekly fluid consumption by<br />

50% and reduces average daily<br />

consumable costs by eliminating<br />

water treatment. One of Fraser<br />

Technologies’ aerospace customers<br />

found success with sister product,<br />

SF79. SF79’s 100% cleanliness<br />

pass rate and efficiency reduces<br />

lead times and costs.<br />

Best in class equipment<br />

Fraser Technologies market<br />

leading cleaning systems provide<br />

superior cleans for a wide range<br />

of industries.<br />

Our superior solvent cleaning<br />

systems offer environmentally<br />

friendly and cost-effective<br />

systems. Our range includes<br />

single and twin tank options to<br />

fully automated systems to<br />

improve your current processes.<br />

The range is designed to safely<br />

operate with the new generation<br />

non-flammable approved<br />

solvents. Sealed lids, upgraded<br />

refrigeration, ultrasonic options<br />

along with the Vapotronic<br />

Electro-Pulse Modulation<br />

increases solvent retention,<br />

reduces energy consumption and<br />

emits fewer carbon emissions.<br />

In addition, we offer a wide<br />

range of aqueous cleaning<br />

systems. The SlimLine PLW 6011<br />

& PLW 6111 aqueous cleaning<br />

systems from Miele Professional,<br />

for example, are single chamber<br />

aqueous cleaning machines.<br />

Providing time energy and cost<br />

saving efficiencies, they can<br />

meet the stringent cleaning<br />

requirements for high-reliability<br />

industrial sectors.<br />

At only 65cm wide, their compact<br />

footprint still provides a large<br />

and flexible internal chamber<br />

space. This combined with a<br />

smart load system means a<br />

variety of components to be<br />

efficiently cleaned simultaneously<br />

whilst utilising much less space<br />

compared with standard sized<br />

machines.<br />

Fraser Technologies have<br />

50 years of experience in<br />

component cleaning across all<br />

manufacturing sectors. They are<br />

uniquely qualified to offer independent<br />

evaluations alongside as<br />

well as sales support packages to<br />

optimise the performance and<br />

efficiency of your processes. For<br />

A SIEBEC Innovation: IONPURE<br />

Continuously eliminates metal polluting the Chromium (III) baths in order to guarantee optimal concentration and<br />

constant part quality<br />

Why IONPURE? Each time parts<br />

are plated ionic metal impurities<br />

are removed from the parts. They<br />

contaminate the Chromium (III)<br />

bath and this reduces the plating<br />

quality. The IONPURE treats the<br />

Chromium (III) bath continuously,<br />

keeping the metal ion pollution<br />

to a minimum. Thus, there is no<br />

interruption in production and<br />

the volume of effluent is minimal<br />

when compared to the traditional<br />

method of dilution or complete<br />

replacement of the<br />

solution.<br />

The treatment utilizes specific<br />

ion exchange resins. Once the<br />

resin is saturated (50g of metal<br />

for 1 litre of resin), IONPURE<br />

switches to regeneration mode to<br />

clean the resin of impurities in<br />

order to reuse the resin. Once<br />

clean the IONPURE is again<br />

used to remove the metal<br />

impurities from the bath. It is<br />

important to note that the<br />

regeneration cycle is initiated<br />

after analysis of the Chrome<br />

solution.<br />

Key benefits of IONPURE<br />

• Durable and profitable<br />

investment<br />

• Quality parts. Guaranteed<br />

• Increased Productivity<br />

Automated paint plant improves factory flow and production<br />

Powder coating plant and<br />

equipment specialists Haviland<br />

Ltd were awarded the contract to<br />

update, modernise and automate<br />

the painting facility at REDHILL<br />

manufacturing, a leading uk<br />

manufacturer of industrial storage<br />

and access solutions.<br />

Haviland designed and installed<br />

a turnkey package including a<br />

new design of power and free<br />

track system. This new design<br />

eliminates the consistent running<br />

noise usually associated with<br />

power and free systems. Due to<br />

extensive testing and design of<br />

the interlocking mechanism<br />

between the towing dog and free<br />

trolly, this system allows for rise<br />

and fall of both loaded and<br />

unloaded flight bars, allowing for<br />

increased versatility in their plant<br />

layouts. Flight bars are flagged<br />

and directed to set areas,<br />

allowing for multiple systems to<br />

be integrated into one conveyor.<br />

The system installed linked two<br />

independent downdraught powder<br />

booths to one cure oven and then<br />

on to multiple off load areas<br />

within the factory via points and<br />

pneumatic pushers to eliminate<br />

any non value added activities<br />

spent manually moving components<br />

in between work spaces.<br />

Systems are fully configurable<br />

in respect to screen display and<br />

visual feedback. This particular<br />

one is managed via a smart system<br />

controlled from one central panel.<br />

The programme shows a number<br />

of configurable screens with live<br />

feedback of flight bar tracking,<br />

full plant over view, individual<br />

process areas along with a maintenance<br />

screen. Live oven capacity<br />

and count down till the next<br />

release. A system which has user<br />

interface as a core design criteria.<br />

The oven is designed to use<br />

the indexing capabilities of the<br />

power and free conveyor to process<br />

flight bars. As a product enters via<br />

the automatic doors, it is timed. A<br />

queue of flight bars builds up<br />

within the oven, each product<br />

completing its programmable<br />

time. Once the time is complete,<br />

it exits through a further set of<br />

doors to the unload stations. This<br />

process saves both energy by<br />

retaining heat within the oven,<br />

along with the space required to<br />

run a conventional tunnel oven.<br />

A step forward with design<br />

from Haviland has created a<br />

versatile system with many<br />

applications.<br />

Bespoke garden sculpture protected for life<br />

The team at Hull-based Humber<br />

Galvanizing Ltd has helped<br />

protect the long-term future of a<br />

garden sculpture inspired by an<br />

iconic space at The Alnwick<br />

Gardens.<br />

North Yorkshire-based Artist<br />

Blacksmith, Katie Ventress, was<br />

commissioned to produce a<br />

private sculpture inspired by the<br />

landmark’s Poison Garden,<br />

which includes around 100<br />

toxic, intoxicating, and narcotic<br />

plants, and an iconic entrance<br />

sign featuring skull and crossbones.<br />

Katie took inspiration from the<br />

Garden’s “these plants may kill”<br />

entrance sign and created her<br />

sculpture which includes Victorian<br />

lettering to mimic old-fashioned<br />

poison bottle labels, and climbing<br />

ivy leaves, 3D skull and crossbones,<br />

and a larger-than-life<br />

spider and web in reference to<br />

the ‘False Widow’ spider.<br />

Once fabricated, Katie then<br />

sent the piece to the team at<br />

Humber Galvanizing to be hot<br />

dipped in its large molten zinc<br />

bath, a process which coats metal<br />

and protects it from corrosion.<br />

The molten zinc treatment also<br />

results in a bright silver finish,<br />

which Katie then acid-etched to<br />

create striking highlights and<br />

rustic effects.<br />

Katie explained: “Having visited<br />

the brilliant Poison Garden at<br />

Alnwick myself, I already felt<br />

inspired to make something for<br />

my customer’s garden that was<br />

completely unique to them but<br />

drew on inspiration from the<br />

iconic Poison Garden’s entrance.<br />

“I’d never made a spider or<br />

human skull before and am<br />

typically drawn to the ‘darker’<br />

subjects, so I was very excited to<br />

get stuck in and do something<br />

new! Galvanizing was hugely<br />

important in order to protect the<br />

outdoor piece from the elements,<br />

and the team at Humber<br />

Galvanizing did a great job as<br />

always. After all, if the sign<br />

doesn’t last for long, how will<br />

people know that the plants will<br />

kill?”<br />

According to Katie, the finish<br />

also provides her with a unique<br />

base from which to acid-etch.<br />

“I use Humber Galvanizing<br />

regularly both for long-term<br />

protection and for the design,<br />

as the silver finish allows me to<br />

create darker shading and<br />

accentuate specific details.<br />

“Once this process was done, I<br />

then polished the lettering and<br />

cobweb to make them stand out.<br />

I’m very pleased with the finished<br />

result and am<br />

thrilled to see<br />

it in pride of<br />

place in my<br />

customer’s<br />

garden.”<br />

Tony<br />

Linsley, Sales<br />

Manager at<br />

Humber<br />

Galvanizing,<br />

added: “Katie<br />

always brings<br />

us fantastic<br />

sculptures to<br />

galvanize and<br />

it’s always an<br />

exciting<br />

moment when<br />

they are<br />

brought out<br />

fully coated<br />

from the<br />

galvanizing<br />

bath. This was<br />

certainly an<br />

eye-catching<br />

piece and<br />

we’re pleased<br />

that it’s been<br />

protected for<br />

the customer<br />

to enjoy for<br />

many years to<br />

come.”<br />

Corrosion Protection -<br />

developing the best preventative measures to reduce corrosion<br />

Carbon and high strength steels<br />

are some of the most widely<br />

used metals today, and the<br />

corrosion of this type of material<br />

is a serious problem for a<br />

variety of industries including<br />

engineering, manufacturing, and<br />

aerospace. If left untreated metal<br />

corrosion can affect a business<br />

from both economic and<br />

structural integrity standpoints.<br />

However, corrosion can largely<br />

be controlled with developments<br />

in various protective solutions.<br />

Sarah Medeiros, Corrosion<br />

Engineer at SIFCO ASC, discusses<br />

developments in R&D to help<br />

slow down the corrosion process.<br />

The shutdown and failure of<br />

equipment due to corrosion can<br />

cause major setbacks for any<br />

industry, especially when<br />

experiencing equipment failure<br />

or replacement, leading to loss of<br />

productivity and efficiency. This is<br />

why comprehensive research is<br />

undertaken to identify the effects<br />

and risks of corrosion to better<br />

understand which types of metals<br />

are most likely to be affected as<br />

well as developing the best<br />

preventative measures to reduce<br />

corrosion.<br />

The challenges facing<br />

engineering, manufacturing<br />

and aerospace.<br />

There are a variety of challenges<br />

when it comes to preventing<br />

corrosion especially when<br />

working in hot and humid<br />

environments, and even not<br />

wiping off chemicals or cleaning<br />

equipment can result in issues.<br />

However, having a proper<br />

maintenance schedule which<br />

includes keeping both machine<br />

and equipment clean as well as<br />

being situated within an airconditioned<br />

environment will<br />

extend equipment and machine<br />

life.<br />

As well as being<br />

economically<br />

important, there is<br />

the additional<br />

sustainability issue<br />

when it comes<br />

to corrosion<br />

protection. While<br />

accounting for<br />

depreciation might<br />

set the expected<br />

lifetime for a<br />

certain number<br />

of years for a<br />

specific piece of<br />

equipment or<br />

component, by<br />

adding corrosion<br />

protection you<br />

have the ability to<br />

further extend that<br />

lifetime which is far<br />

more sustainable<br />

than replacement.<br />

Types of metals at<br />

risk of<br />

corrosion.<br />

Carbon and high<br />

strength steels are<br />

very susceptible to<br />

corrosion because<br />

these alloys have<br />

been designed<br />

primarily for<br />

strength and lack<br />

the chromium<br />

content found in stainless steels<br />

that prevent corrosion. The<br />

aerospace industry is a prime<br />

example of the necessity of<br />

corrosion prevention, due to the<br />

wide variety of environments that<br />

materials are exposed to,<br />

especially the high strength steel<br />

landing gears on planes. With<br />

this type of steel, hydrogen<br />

embrittlement adds an element<br />

of risk. Another alternative<br />

electroplated deposit for<br />

corrosion protection is tin zinc,<br />

however, one of its disadvantages<br />

is it has less optimum wear<br />

properties when compared to<br />

zinc nickel.<br />

Corrosion protection relies<br />

heavily on testing, and it<br />

produces a great deal of data<br />

which needs to be analyzed.<br />

This research helps to benefit<br />

businesses within engineering,<br />

manufacturing, and the<br />

aerospace industry. R&D<br />

departments’ regularly work on<br />

different projects and corrosive<br />

scenarios. One major product<br />

that the team at SIFCO ASC are<br />

involved with is a cadmium<br />

replacement technology – a zinc<br />

nickel alloy. The two primary<br />

forms of corrosion that are<br />

most likely to affect substrates<br />

that have traditionally been<br />

electroplated with cadmium are<br />

hydrogen embrittlement and<br />

general corrosion. By adjusting<br />

and homing in on a variety of<br />

plating parameters, zinc nickel<br />

has met or exceeded cadmium<br />

selective plating, especially during<br />

salt spray testing.<br />

Optimizing this deposit and<br />

plating parameters, along with<br />

the subsequent research and<br />

testing are driven by regulations<br />

which aim to reduce the use of<br />

harmful chemicals like cadmium,<br />

which is a carcinogen, whereas<br />

zinc nickel is less harmful. A lot<br />

of the testing within zinc nickel<br />

helps to support businesses with<br />

their corrosion protection goals<br />

and, in some instances, helps<br />

them work with the military to<br />

roll the system out where<br />

advances in corrosion protection<br />

are vital.<br />

Translating the data into real<br />

world problem solving.<br />

Data gained from testing can<br />

be used to work on other<br />

projects that will help to advance<br />

corrosion protection. The ASCS<br />

(Advanced Solution Control<br />

System) is one such project,<br />

which is a fully automated,<br />

dripless, selective electroplating<br />

system from SIFCO ASC. One of<br />

the many benefits of this type of<br />

technology is that due to the<br />

dripless design the plating<br />

solution is vacuumed away<br />

during the plating process,<br />

allowing an even tighter control<br />

on testing parameters and<br />

reducing hazardous waste.<br />

Additional testing has involved<br />

looking at the effects of the<br />

appearance and morphology of<br />

the deposit and how it affects<br />

the overall performance. As well<br />

as ensuring that the part or<br />

component is protected and<br />

performs to the highest standard<br />

possible, in some cases it is<br />

important that the end result<br />

looks aesthetically pleasing which<br />

is why further testing here is key.<br />

Supporting the customer.<br />

With a considerable amount of<br />

time and research going into the<br />

development of corrosion<br />

protection technologies, the<br />

industry and customers’ needs<br />

are always changing which in<br />

turn will change our priorities and<br />

determine how we can advance<br />

selective electroplating further. As<br />

a business SIFCO ASC helps<br />

customers to meet their selective<br />

plating requirements, by using<br />

engineering expertise and continuous<br />

innovation through R&D.<br />

This is important during the<br />

concept, design, and production<br />

phase of a project. Our process is<br />

a vital resource when you need<br />

to enhance, repair, and rebuild<br />

your critical components. We<br />

work closely with our customers<br />

to develop solutions to fulfil<br />

specific application requirements.<br />

Ultimately, plating can be used to<br />

repair, enhance, and increase the<br />

lifecycle of a product, protecting<br />

them against the onset and risk<br />

of corrosion, thereby improving<br />

performance and reducing<br />

component failure.<br />

The future of corrosion protection.<br />

There is so much more to learn<br />

when it comes to corrosion<br />

protection, particularly focusing<br />

on other types of materials and<br />

substrates that are less susceptible<br />

to corrosion. The use of titanium<br />

is one alternative that companies<br />

might look at, as it forms a<br />

natural protective layer of<br />

oxidation. Testing the effects of<br />

plating on titanium is ongoing,<br />

with the intended use of having<br />

natural corrosion protection plus<br />

the benefit of additional<br />

electroplated deposits on top that<br />

can serve a variety of purposes.<br />

The increasing use of titanium is<br />

in large part because it is inert,<br />

strong, and lightweight in<br />

comparison to steel.<br />

One other material that has<br />

been identified for plating on is<br />

graphite epoxy composite<br />

materials, which are conductive<br />

and very lightweight, and ideal<br />

for aerospace applications. This<br />

application presents similar<br />

challenges to plating on titanium<br />

and while some preliminary<br />

testing has been conducted, the<br />

results still need to be studied<br />

and developed further. Corrosion<br />

presents a significant challenge<br />

within engineering and<br />

manufacturing industries and<br />

scientists and corrosion<br />

prevention engineers are working<br />

hard to find ways to slow the<br />

process down.<br />

Innovations in corrosion<br />

protection processes and testing<br />

will continue to be a driving force<br />

for success. SIFCO ASC<br />

continues to focus its attentions<br />

on corrosion protection research<br />

and development, working<br />

closely with customers to develop<br />

effective solutions to their<br />

challenges. Corrosion will<br />

continue to present engineering<br />

and manufacturing challenges,<br />

but with advancements in plating<br />

technology such as with the<br />

ASCS more is being done to<br />

slow down and reduce the effects<br />

of corrosion.<br />

Ultrasonic Cleaning Trials with Ultrawave<br />

Ultrasonic Cleaning is the use of<br />

sound waves through water to<br />

create microscopic implosions,<br />

removing contamination from<br />

surfaces, nooks and crannies. The<br />

imploding bubbles act like<br />

microscopic scrubbing brushes<br />

throughout the cleaning tank and<br />

remove dirt from all over the item,<br />

far more effectively than other<br />

methods. Ultrawave’s ultrasonic<br />

cleaning technology is highly<br />

effective, removing contaminants<br />

from surface areas inaccessible to<br />

spray washing or manual cleaning.<br />

Ultrawave’s 30 years’ experience<br />

of designing and manufacturing<br />

ultrasonic cleaning solutions for a<br />

wide range of industries has<br />

resulted in expertise they can<br />

apply to finding the best solution<br />

where you can see some of the<br />

ultrasonic units in action as well as<br />

testing how well your parts can be<br />

cleaned. If Cardiff is a bit of a<br />

distance for you, they are happy<br />

to accept items by post for<br />

Cleaning Trials, and they will provide<br />

a report of the trials, and take<br />

videos and photographs of the<br />

process and results.<br />

Every Cleaning Trial is<br />

performed with individual<br />

requirements in mind. The team<br />

at Ultrawave know that you need<br />

Why your ultrasonic cleaning process is so important?<br />

Automated Inline Ultrasonic Cleaner<br />

Ultrasonic cleaners are wonderful<br />

pieces of equipment that can<br />

help you reduce costs, save time,<br />

increase effectiveness and beat<br />

some of the toughest cleaning<br />

challenges.<br />

Too good to be true? Well<br />

sometimes it can be.<br />

Ultrasonic cleaning is as<br />

good as the process it is used<br />

in. There are many examples<br />

of cleaning systems being<br />

used the wrong way leaving<br />

customers disappointed and<br />

frustrated.<br />

So how do you know that your<br />

process is correct? Some things<br />

can be more obvious than others,<br />

once you breakdown the stages<br />

of your cleaning. Let’s go<br />

through 5 things to check:<br />

• Handling – How is your<br />

component handled. Is it by<br />

an operator with dirty gloves<br />

or basket? It’s amazing how<br />

many people spend time<br />

getting a great clean, then<br />

contaminate a component<br />

with dirty gloves. We always<br />

recommend suitable jigs and<br />

baskets rather than manual<br />

handling.<br />

• Rinsing – Rinsing is key to<br />

the next process for the<br />

component you are cleaning<br />

and in some cases several<br />

rinses are required. Not only<br />

does rinsing remove any final<br />

contamination it also can be<br />

important to remove the<br />

chemical used in the clean,<br />

to prevent quality issues<br />

going forward. Rinsing in<br />

contaminated solutions once<br />

completing a clean is a massive<br />

process issue, but can be<br />

combated by using pre washes<br />

and filtration.<br />

• Chemical – Many customers<br />

have given up on ultrasonics<br />

when in fact they were just<br />

using the wrong the chemical.<br />

Always trial different chemicals<br />

to ensure the one you are<br />

using gives the best results.<br />

• Stages – There are some<br />

cleans that are going to require<br />

more than one stage. A part<br />

that has both oil and carbon<br />

contamination, may not be<br />

able to be cleaned with one<br />

solution, it may require various<br />

stages and chemicals.<br />

Understanding what your clean<br />

is and number of stages is vital<br />

to getting effective cleaning<br />

processes.<br />

• Time – Understanding the<br />

time required in an ultrasonic<br />

is important. Timing could be<br />

the difference between a good<br />

clean and a poor clean. The<br />

time shouldn’t just be left to an<br />

operator. Many of our systems<br />

include programmable cycles<br />

with alarms to ensure the<br />

process is being governed at<br />

all times.<br />

you can improve your cleaning<br />

process, please contact us on<br />
