Automated dip-spin-tilt transfer hoist technology to move parts through chromate, sealing and other zinc plating post-processes can help users reduce chemical costs and waste generation while meeting customer demands for increased quality. The system, from WMV Inc., transfers parts from the plating process through a water-filled funnel and basket to minimize impact and part damage during transfer. It then dips parts while rotating and tilting the basket at up to a 60° angle to maximize solution turnover around the parts. Baskets can also be oscillated up and down while remaining vertical or tilted, and can be raised above the treatment bath and spun at high speed to remove excess solution and reduce drag-out by up to 90%.
