Generally speaking, a vacuum mill can deliver better quality product in about the same time as a pressure mill that uses twice the amount of media, as well as produce a better-quality product in one quarter the time of a comparably media-loaded pressure mill.
A new pre-dispersion process has been developed that creates a homogenous slurry suitable for micro-bead milling, reliably bringing the promised cost savings and efficiency to an industrialized color suspension process for the first time.
The DYNO-MILL UBM truly grinds almost anything. This new generation of agitator bead mills guarantees high flexibility of use, high productivity and a cost-effective solution for all wet-milling tasks.
The results of this study demonstrate that heat-sensitive substrates like plastics and composites can be prepared with plasma treatment and successfully coated with UV-cured powder without degrading or deforming the integrity of the substrate.
In addition to the advantages of controlling repair costs, avoiding warranty costs for failure recovery, reducing unplanned downtime and eliminating the causes of failure, predictive maintenance employs non-intrusive testing techniques to evaluate and compute asset performance trends.
The real-time insight generated by ACOMP enables polymer manufacturers to immediately respond to process anomalies, adhere to tighter polymer quality control specifications, and optimize polymer production for continuous, batch and semibatch runs.
Recently introduced industrial chiller systems incorporate a significant series of hardware, software, material usage and design improvements. The combination of improvements in each of these domains has led to a significant overall performance improvement for this type of equipment.
Digitization has been a disruptor and driving force behind the development of a wide range of industries such as entertainment, retail and finance, among others. It will also bring a quantum leap for the manufacturing sector. It is vital for manufacturing companies to grasp the opportunities to reshape their operations and businesses, and transform the entire organization.
Our May issue features Part 2 of our two-part series on icephobic coatings. We also showcase a new overspray-free paint system that AUDI AG is using, as well as an article from Hockmeyer on vacuum milling, and a feature from X-Rite on how to select the right tolerancing method when controlling color.
