Corrdesa will showcase its computer-aided engineering (CAE) capabilities, including electrochemical and fluid analysis designed to optimize plating processes for efficiency, uniformity and corrosion performance, helping to save time and cost. The company says it models the plating process, including the electric fields, fluid flows, heat transport and more, and uses those models to optimize the placement of anodes, robbers, eductors and other system components to ensure accurate and uniform plating.

The company also offers the Corrosion Djinn corrosion assessment tool, a software designed to help engineers evaluate and manage galvanic corrosion risk of dissimilar materials. The company says it guides the designer to the best combination of materials, coatings, and surface finishes, using a qualified database of modern electroplates and passivates. Corrdesa also says it is beginning to add commercial coatings from companies interested in participating.
