Roy Metal Finishing (RMF, Greenville, S.C.) has introduced a SIDASA robotic treatment technology for post plating and baking application of passivates, sealers, topcoats and waxes. The part-specific, recipe-driven technology ensures gentle handling of all size parts to guarantee excellent performance and appearance. This offering includes the latest technology for trivalent black passivates over zinc and zinc nickel plating. The line is positioned beside the company’s continuous hydrogen embrittlement relief oven for efficient transfer of parts for the application of trivalent clear, yellow and/or black passivates.

In addition, RMF recently completed the installation of a new automated, part-specific, recipe-driven heavy zinc phosphate line. This line is capable of coating parts in a barrel or rack with the application of pre-black, heavy oil, dry-to-touch or no oil. The company says the line currently operates on a 10-hour/shift schedule with plans to grow into a 3 shift, 5 day/week schedule.
RMF says the new technology is critical for growth in the automotive, agriculture and general fastener industries.
