Dassault Systèmes (Vélizy-Villacoublay, France) is collaborating with Geico Taikisha (Milano, Italy), which plans and constructs turnkey automotive car painting systems, on a joint initiative to improve quality, production rates and production efficiency in auto body painting.
Geico Taikisha will implement Dassault Systèmes’ DELMIA applications as the manufacturing execution system of its Smart Paintshop, an auto body paint shop of the future that integrates smart, connected and strategic solutions to improve the efficiency, safety, quality, costs and sustainability of the auto body painting sector. Through a model-based, data-driven digital experience, DELMIA applications allow users to establish a common set of operational processes to improve agility and expand continuous improvement across the enterprise and extended value network.
Over the past few years, a number of new environmental directives have come out of Europe and Asia encompassing mainly the automotive and electronics industries.
Ford and GM install new paint shops, equipment to improve efficiency.
A Comparative Study of Gamma-Phase Zinc-Nickel Deposits Electroplated from Various Alkaline and Acid Systems
Sacrificial anodic coatings, specifically zinc deposits, have provided corrosion protection to components and parts across many industries, with an increasing demand in the automotive and industrial sectors. Today, typical sacrificial applications for fasteners, fuel systems, braking systems and drive assemblies require higher corrosion performance from anodic coatings. Electrochemical alloys can be designed to provide the highest corrosion potentials to meet these increased demands.
