Hand spray is a type of industrial coating process. Hand spray is useful for coating parts, components, or equipment that have odd or difficult geometries. Items such as this cannot generally be coating via traditional, mechanized, industrial coating methods because their unusual shapes prevent them from being coated uniformly across their surfaces.
Hand spray industrial coating is generally performed by trained professionals, using specialized application systems that allow the applicator to move 360° around the workpiece. Special hand-held equipment (hence, “hand [...]
Statistical Process Control Software
Statistical process control software (SPCS) is used in quality control, to monitor and control a process or processes, usually in manufacturing applications. By monitoring and controlling a process or processes, SPCS can help ensure that said process(es) operates at full potential. Running a manufacturing process at full potential enables it to create as much conforming product (product meeting specifications) as possible, with minimal waste.
Statistical process control software can be applied to any process where the output of conforming product can [...]
Intermatic Timers & Controls
Founded in 1891 as a manufacturer of portable streetcar fare registers, Intermatic has a long history of excellence. From Navy bomb sites in 1917 and coin meters during the Great Depression to their timers, switches, and photo-electric controls, introduced in the late ’50s and now the company’s bread and butter, Intermatic has made their name as a highly integrated manufacturer of industrial and consumer energy and time regulation products.
For decades, Intermatic has been dedicated to developing energy management solutions to [...]
Anodizing is an electrolytic passivation process designed to increase the thickness of the naturally occurring oxide layer on the surface of metal materials. Anodizing is generally used to improve the corrosion resistance of the treated material; it can also improve its dielectric properties and aesthetics. A variety of metals can be anodized, such as aluminum, magnesium, zinc, titanium, niobium, and tantalum.
The anodizing process relies on a very specific chemical-electrical reaction. As such, anodizing requires very specific chemicals to produce the [...]
Anodizing is the process of increasing the thickness of the naturally occurring oxide layer on the surface of metal materials through electrolytic passivation. Anodizing improves the material’s corrosion resistance and can improve its dielectric properties and aesthetic appearance. Numerous metals can be anodized through essentially the same process, including aluminum, titanium, magnesium, zinc, and tantalum.
Because it is a specialized process, anodizing requires specialized equipment. Perhaps the most important piece of equipment in the anodizing process is the rectifier. Anodizing rectifiers [...]
