Early Bird Registration through May 11 for Additive Manufacturing Workshop for Plastics at Amerimold 2019
Event is June 13 at the Donald Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
Technical Coatings enable smooth and sealed surfaces with specific functions.
This presentation is the 53rd William Blum Lecture, presented at SUR/FIN 2016 in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 6, 2016. In this lecture, Dr. Melissa Klingenberg discusses additive manufacturing; that is, any manufacturing process capable of making 3D objects from a digital model, or building-up 3D features onto an existing object, layer-by-layer. Cold spray, thermal spray, electroforming, structural plating and gaseous carbonyl deposition are covered.
Andreas Osterwalder calls his office a museum: what looks like a collection of small machines are 3D printed and partially electroplated parts that the scientist has been creating for his experiments.
Q. I inherited a cleaning and phosphate line and over the last two weeks, we have lost our phosphate solution twice. I am told it is because we have lost iron in the solution. Is there an additive that can be used to help maintain the solution as the tank is not in constant use?
We have been experiencing craters or dimples in our current coating application process. We have spoken with our coating supplier, which said we may need to add an additive to eliminate this. What is this product, and how does it work?
A recent Forbes article by Mitch Free addresses the problem of cadmium finishing. Free is the owner of ZYCI, a small manufacturing company that provides CNC machining, injection molding and 3D printing.
We have customers that want a smooth powder coating on a galvaneal finish. We prep with a light alcohol wipe, prebake the parts to allow for off-gassing, then spray with a smooth powder. We are having problems with “craters” and specs, so the surfaces won’t pass a class “A” test. Is there a way to coat a galvaneal part with a smooth powder that does not have a special additive?
Ionic Liquid [BMPy]Br as an Effective Additive During Zinc Electrodeposition from an Aqueous Sulfate Bath
The effects of a new ionic liquid additive 1-butyl-3-methylpyridinium bromide [BMPy]Br on the electrodeposition of zinc on steel substrates from acidic sulfate solution was investigated by employing potentiodynamic polarization and cyclic voltammetry techniques complemented with XRD and SEM measurements.
Results show that the novel organic additive reduced the sparking voltage and provided a relatively smoother surface.
Is there a specific additive that can be added to an injection molded ABS plastic part to allow it to accept a powder coating?
Question: In the November 2003 issue of the Painting Clinic (www.pfonline.com/articles/clinics/1103cl_paint5.html), you replied to B.B. regarding the addition of a heat insulating additive to his paint material.
Question: Sir, I have purchased a granular powder that is a heat resistant additive and has to be added into the paint as 20% addition.
