General Magnaplate engineered coatings enhance and protect metal components from sticky substances and ensure proper mold release.
Engineered coatings can address your application’s conditions and your pump’s specific mechanical requirements to ensure productivity and uptime.
When you want to get the most out of your worn parts, let General Magnaplate engineered coatings be part of your MRO strategy.
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.
To protect metal surfaces from damage, you have several methods to choose from. Many vendors provide surface enhancement offerings that range from plating to powders to paint-on processes, all of which can offer a fair amount of protection.
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.
When two objects make contact with each other, there's going to be resistance, or friction, between the surfaces. Friction causes wear and affects the performance and operating life of components, so it’s important to minimize it.
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.
This video shows how General Magnaplate fortifies your engineered coating by infusing polymers into the substrate and applying a proprietary sealing process so it becomes an integral part of the new surface.
When you learn that a company has earned AS9100 certification, you know it is committed to continuously improving its operations.
Sometime during your metal or alloy part’s lifetime, it will be vulnerable to corrosion. Corrosion is a common problem, and it occurs in many different forms.
In powder and bulk solids handling processes, many conditions can hinder equipment reliability and performance.
When machine parts wear out, they can hurt the plant’s productivity and costs. While replacing these parts may be appropriate, MRO professionals should consider refurbishing them with the help of engineered surface enhancement coatings.
In the powder bulk solids industry, precise metering and efficient material feeding are critical. However, several conditions can hinder machine performance and affect lifetime.
As oil and gas facilities move to more remote locations with extreme conditions, any equipment downtime due to parts failure can be costly.
Throughout the food processing process, a variety of conditions can affect your equipment’s performance and reliability.
Mining and mineral processing facilities present a host of threats that can affect valve reliability and uptime. Knife gate valves used in slurry transport, for example, must consistently perform despite heavy contact with abrasive, corrosive metal solids or acids that can erode the valve.
When it comes to protecting metal and mixed metal components, harsh conditions and high performance requirements often prove too demanding for conventional coatings.
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.
Maintaining equipment with specialized surface treatments mitigates issues involving abrasion, premature wear, corrosion and sticking.
How engineered coatings extend equipment lifetime, protecting parts from wear, abrasion and corrosion.
Metal coatings technologies provide a critical edge in dry bulk solids handling—reducing friction, preventing material buildup, increasing lifespan and more.
This video shows how Tufram coatings for aluminum far outperform conventional hard anodizing when it comes to corrosion resistance, friction reduction and hardness.
Communicating early with your coating vendor to discuss base metal choices can limit issues later in the design process—especially if your part has tight tolerances.
Choose the right surface treatments early to increase a part's lifespan, cut downtime and reduce overhead.
Boost uptime and cleanliness in food processing applications with engineered coatings that handle the demands of 24/7 plant schedules and rigorous cleaning routines.
Following basic tips when designing parts for coatings will prevent problems during the coating process.
Engineered coatings solve pharmaceutical packaging issues, including problems relating to release, friction, corrosion, speed and sticking.
