Protective Coatings Maximize Machine Uptime and Productivity

As more manufacturing operations rely on predictive maintenance to keep systems running, you can count on surface protection coatings to keep machines running reliably. We formulated our coatings to resist persistent industrial threats like corrosion, chemical attack, abrasive wear, galling and sticking, along with the associated downtime.

We can engineer the right surface protection coating to impart the properties your parts need to operate effectively and reliably in their environment. Our surface treatments improve common and inexpensive metals, transforming them into super-hard, smooth, higher-performing surfaces ideal for demanding manufacturing conditions. They also boost production, efficiency and equipment lifetimes while meeting various industry standards.

Application Examples

Gears and Bearings in Robotic Systems

Robotic parts move constantly in automated manufacturing systems, creating friction that causes wear and tear. Applying Hi-T-Lube and Magnaplate HMF® to these parts reduces wear from friction to keep robots in service around the clock.

Engineered Coatings Boost Throughput, Solve Problems in Packaging Applications

Keeping packaging equipment up and running is top priority for engineers and plant personnel. Faced with ever-increasing productivity benchmarks based on fast and efficient operation, packaging engineers must continually fight against issues such as sticking, premature wear, abrasion and corrosion. To eliminate these challenges, nano-engineered coatings are being used to protect machine components and solve performance problems in food, pharmaceutical and consumer goods packaging.

High-Tech, Space-Age Metal Surface Enhancement Coating Solves Wear and Release Problems for Pine Instrument Company's Gyratory Compaction Asphalt Testers

The development of computer-controlled asphalt testing equipment to simulate and then quantify and predict the punishment which various asphalt mixes will be able to endure when used to pave actual roads has placed enormous burdens on the components of that test equipment. To stand up to simulations of heavy road wear, equipment designers have had to look beyond the conventional and to seek out materials that could endure tremendous stress. That was precisely the position in which the worldwide, leading supplier of such equipment, Pine Instrument Company of Grove City, Pennsylvania, found itself.
