Three Things To Look For When Searching For A Supplier of Plating Equipment

Posted on: September 30th, 2013 by canadianfinishing No Comments

Electroplating is a precise practice and requires a specific equipment setup. There is diverse market for manufacturers in this field, including industries such as auto manufacturing, telecommunications, aerospace, and the military. The companies supporting each industry rely on the availability on high quality, competitively priced plating equipment to manufacture the products that they use and/or sell, as well as a supplier who is able to support their varied requirements.


1. An Organization Responsive To Its Customers’ Needs


Organizations in the metal finishing industry need a supplier who can understand the organization’s specific needs and understands the specific needs of an industry or company. While larger suppliers seem to have depth of resources, clients often find themselves caught in a situation where important details are overlooked due to too many people involved in a project. A smaller supplier can be more responsive to the needs of its customers, their focus and attention allowing for quicker issue resolution and the opportunity for a more customized process or solution.


2. High Quality Plating Equipment


The smartest, most customer-centric organization is worthless without the availability of a quality product. Companies rely on plating equipment such as tanks, filtration systems, filters, hangers, frames, and power supplies for their business needs. They want to be assured that they are getting products that fulfill their requirements, and perform well, while lasting a long time. Sometimes a company’s plating equipment needs are unique and require an individualized solution. Look for a manufacturing firm experienced in providing both standard and specialized products.


3. Cost Effective Solutions


Companies looking for a plating equipment supplier are often frustrated when they find the apparatus they need, only to discover that it is too cost-prohibitive to implement to their business process. Finding a partner offering high quality materials and customer service at a competitive price allows companies to produce their products while maximizing their profit margin.


Businesses look to their suppliers for their expertise in choosing the metal finishing equipment that best suits their business. Canadian Finishing Systems prides themselves on their quality products and strong customer focus to help their clients meet their electroplating needs.

Cleaning Methods: Industrial Chemical Wipes, Aqueous, Non-aqueous and Vapour Degreasing

Posted on: July 8th, 2013 by canadianfinishing No Comments

Modern manufacturing operations require careful attention to detail and exacting standards. When it comes to surface finishing, the first step to any successful process is ensuring that parts are completely clean. Each application requires its own cleaning process and there are a number of different techniques and technologies that are utilized to ensure that all parts are as free as possible from foreign material and contaminates to ensure proper adhesion once the finishing process begins.


Industrial Chemical Wipes



For lighter duty cleaning, there are a number of methods that involve industrial chemical wipes. Specially woven cloths are coated with solvents which can then be applied by hand to individual parts. Industrial chemical wipes are ideal for smaller-quantity jobs where special care can be taken with each individual item to be cleaned. Most industrial chemical wipes are not reusable and must be handled properly to prevent contamination or improper disposal. In general, industrial chemical wipes are often only one part of a more thorough cleaning process.



Aqueous Cleaning



Aqueous cleaning involves using water in a solution with certain chemicals to remove grease and other contaminants. In aqueous cleaning, the water-based solution acts on the foreign material and then heat or agitation is applied to remove the impurities from the surface and wash them away.



Non-aqueous Cleaning


Non-aqueous cleaning, as the name implies, relies on solvents in a non-water based solution. These solvents act to dissolve and remove the foreign material chemically. Parts may be dipped or submerged in the solvent to ensure complete coating.



Vapour Degreasing


Vapour degreasing uses heat to create solvent vapour which acts on the parts being cleaned. Rather than being submerged directly into the solvent bath, parts are hung above a heated basin of cleaning solution. The resulting vapour condenses on the parts, dissolves the contaminants and then drips away.


Every finishing process requires its own unique cleaning regimen and Canadian Finishing Systems has the experience to assist you in choosing the proper methods for your application.
