Results show that the novel organic additive reduced the sparking voltage and provided a relatively smoother surface.
Here is the Products Finishing Latest News for the week December 19, which includes information on how coatings for additive manufacturing is showing promise and Boeing and AkzoNobel have coated their 787th plane in the 787 fleet.
Technical Coatings enable smooth and sealed surfaces with specific functions.
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.
Henkel’s Adhesive Technologies business unit is now offering the ability to create tailor-made materials for additive manufacturing.
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?
The benefits of AM may result in cleaning challenges. The layer-by-layer process of AM allows complex internal support structures and tortuous internal channels.
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?
I have heard that a fish-eye-type additive can be added to the coating to help eliminate what looks like Swiss cheese in my coating after it has been sprayed. Can you give me any insights on this issue?
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?
