Atotech's DynaSmart Plating Line Enhances Efficiency
Appears in Print as: 'New Automation System Maximizes Plating Throughput'
Atotech’s DynaSmart includes a new automation system that allows the simultaneous movement of several product carriers through different plating tanks.
Atotech (Rock Hill, S.C.) has launched its DynaSmart plating line for corrosion-resistant coatings worldwide. This addition to the company’s product line is meant to address increasing demands for advanced surface-finishing equipment in industrial end-markets.
DynaSmart’s new automation design enables several product carriers to move simultaneously through different plating tanks. This allows customers to process different parts simultaneously according to their specific immersion times and agitation modes, enabling flexible and customized production.
DynaSmart is compact and available as a modular system, helping it fit into existing factories and easing expansion as product demand increases. To make the installation process more efficient, Atotech pre-installs DynaSmart modules at its factory and ships them in standardized freight containers for plug-and-play installation.
This equipment features a large number of integrated recycling processes, resulting in lower consumption of resources and chemicals and producing less wastewater.
Further technical features include even distribution of coating thickness through uniform current density provided by small coating barrels, automated maintenance processes that maximize production availability and a high throughput capacity of 13,500 tons per year despite the line’s small size.
Atotech manufactures the DynaSmart plating line at its recently expanded production facility in Guangzhou, China, which also produces Atotech’s DynaPlus plating system and a wide range of sustainability-enhancing auxiliary equipment for the Asian market.
“We are delighted to now manufacture some of Atotech’s renowned products here in China,” says Alex Liu, general manager of operations at Atotech China. “The DynaSmart system uses the latest technologies for production automation and applies the highest safety and sustainability standards. It serves as a role model for the development of next-generation plating lines that enable more sustainable production in China, and also around the world.”
