Automotive companies and coaters recognize the need to monitor viscosity, but making that measurement outside the laboratory has challenged process engineers and quality departments. Automated in-line viscosity measurement enables continuous monitoring of paint at the point of application.
Data Loggers are devices that record information by periodically taking measurements from external or internal sensors over an extended period of time, and are an ideal way to capture data by removing the need for personnel to spend time manually taking and recording measurements.
CAS DataLoggers supplied the industrial data logging solution to Northeast Coating Technologies (NCT) in Kennebunk, Maine. NCT is a surface treatment company specializing in Salt Bath Nitriding Melonite® Quench-Polish-Quench (QPQ), among other processes, to produce high-durability metal components including piston rods, axles and more.
Signal Group has confirmed that the latest version of its portable FID analyzer, the 3010 MINIFID PURE, is being submitted to TÜV for QAL1 testing. This is a procedure to demonstrate that the instrument is suitable for its intended purpose, and meets required performance standards and the uncertainty allowances specified in EU Directives.
Utilizing digital color management in powder coatings eliminates data silos, ultimately resulting in faster, more-accurate matching. Digital color management gives manufacturers confidence in their color quality, knowing they have obtained it quickly and cost effectively.
Surface preparation is essential to achieving a superior finish. Vapor degreasing using modern, highly advanced cleaning fluids makes the process simple, consistent and sustainable and results in spotlessly clean parts. This article looks at the process and why it is one of the most comprehensive and effective cleaning methods to achieve an excellent surface for finishing.
In the shipbuilding industry, repairs are a constant and inevitable fact of marine life, resulting in costly downtime and loss of earnings. This article explains how shipyards can put key technologies in the dock which offer speed, portability and efficiency.
