Chem Processing Completes Construction of New Anodizing Line 7/13/2022
Chem Processing recently completed construction of a new anodizing line. This processing line is able to simultaneously run sulfuric acid anodizing, hardcoat anodizing, hardcoat/PTFE, chromic acid (8625 Type I) anodizing, chemfilm/Alodine and trivalent chemfilm simultaneously. The four-hoist system is software controlled and recipe driven so that once jobs are through the planning stage, they run the same way every time. The system also allows for detailed records to be retrieved, allowing for quality review of any job at any time. All processing chemistries are maintained to Nadcap standards and verified by ASTM B117 salt spray periodic testing.
CPI partnered with Koch Price Walgren to design and build this state-of-the-art system, incorporating quality and environment-focused inputs like conductivity-controlled rinses and algorithm-driven anodizing. Black, red, blue and gold dyes are in-line, with capability to add additional colors if needed. Hot water, nickel acetate, dichromate and trivalent chromic post-anodize seals are available. Parts up to 6'x4'x2' can be accomodated.
Here's a time lapse video of construction...
