Pumps, valves and compressors endure a host of threats that can impact their reliability and your operation’s productivity. Our new video describes how General Magnaplate’s engineered coatings protect a variety of metal surfaces from corrosion, abrasion, wear, material buildup and other conditions to ensure optimal media flow and maximum uptime across a broad range of applications.
When sticking threatens equipment uptime and reliability, engineered coatings can protect your machine surfaces and improve their non-stick properties.
General Magnaplate offers a wide range of engineered coatings that protect food production machines and equipment and keeps them running at their best.
When selecting your surface protection coating, be sure to also consider thermal sprays.
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.
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.
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.
When you need to enhance the surface of your part, chances are you don’t want to coat the entire part. Although masking is an essential aspect of the surface protection process, it is often an afterthought.
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.
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.
Fast-paced, high-volume production facilities cannot afford downtime caused by poorly performing packaging equipment.
General Magnaplate's Arlington, Texas, facility has expanded to keep pace with our substantial growth over the last five years.
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.
What’s the best way to protect metal parts against wear, abrasion or corrosion to ensure long lifetimes? Engineers evaluating protective coatings for metal components may not be aware of the advantages that thermal sprays offer over conventional coatings.
Labeling machines must operate around the clock at very high speeds. But if adhesive residue clings to any of the machine components, the entire production process will grind to a halt until the parts are cleaned.
In the productivity-driven packaging world, there are many possible sources of downtime. Surface enhancement coatings can help you eliminate them—ensuring your packaging machines run smoothly.
Engineered coatings keep automated machinery running smoothly, increasing throughput and helping to maintain 24/7 operation.
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.
Watch this video to learn about the basic versions of our advanced surface enhancement technologies.
Synergistic thermal spray Plasmadize includes polymer infusion, and when applied mechanically bonds to the substrate, altering its surface properties.
Metal coatings technologies provide a critical edge in dry bulk solids handling—reducing friction, preventing material buildup, increasing lifespan and more.
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.
Applying the right type of engineered coatings to key machine components will keep converting lines humming.
Following basic tips when designing parts for coatings will prevent problems during the coating process.
