Session 2: Metal Finishing: Past, Present, and Future
Learn the benefits of using surface analytics to obtain a cleaner bath process and prevent upstream issues. Analyzing the surface characteristics helps to identify and prevent costly problems.
Advances in Surface Finishing Technology
Technologies for Improved Performance or Increased Efficiency
A common question asked by metal finishers is….How do I know when my cleaner bath is aged, and no longer effectively cleaning parts? Over the years, shops have used methods such as an oil split test, titration, conductivity, and other wet chemical methods. In this discussion we will demonstrate how measuring the surface characteristics of parts in real time, can give a more accurate and meaningful prediction of when the cleaner bath is no longer effective.
