Valves used in industrial facilities, as well as oil and gas installations, must endure severe conditions that can damage surfaces, lead to downtime or even shorten a part’s lifetime.
Food processing and bulk solids operations share many of the same objectives - maximizing runtime, high production and throughput, lower maintenance costs and long equipment lifetime. However, issues like part replacement, preventative maintenance and cleaning can hinder those goals.
In our latest webinar, Mind Your Metal - Coating Conversations on Packaging, we examine some common issues in the packaging industry and explore the ways high-performance coatings can solve them to help you reduce downtime and increase productivity.
Throughout the oil and gas industry, equipment is prone to unforgiving conditions that can affect performance and reliability.
When your machine shop creates precise metal parts for demanding industries, failure is not an option. Your vendors must be responsive to your needs as well as those of your customers.
No matter your industry, there will be times when you need to coat a part — whether to protect it from conditions in its target application, improve its performance, extend its lifetime or simply to enhance its aesthetics.
When you learn that a company has earned AS9100 certification, you know it is committed to continuously improving its operations.
Aerospace environments involve some of the toughest conditions for equipment. Threats like friction, galling, corrosion and high temperatures can cause some of the industry’s most common metals and alloys to fail.
In powder and bulk solids handling processes, many conditions can hinder equipment reliability and performance.
In the powder bulk solids industry, precise metering and efficient material feeding are critical. However, several conditions can hinder machine performance and affect lifetime.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. General Magnaplate was part of the Apollo program's success from the beginning, both on the ground innovating surface coatings for space exploration and, later, on the moon protecting the drill tubes that sampled the moon's soil and rocks.
Fast-paced, high-volume production facilities cannot afford downtime caused by poorly performing packaging equipment.
When it comes to food processing applications, the types of equipment that need protection are as varied as the threats they face. Whether you specify or upgrade molds, hoppers, pneumatic cylinders, extruders or guillotine blades, protecting that equipment is a top priority.
