Session 2: Metal Finishing: Past, Present, and Future

Abstract Number:

92

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.‎

Topics:

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.‎
