Coating Has Diamond Particles for Added Toughness
Samples of coatings from Bales Metal Surface Solutions will be available in in booth W118 at NPE2018.
Bales Metal Surface Solutions provides coatings and finishes to protect from wear, abrasion and corrosion. Its coatings can increase hardness for better durability and lower the coefficient of friction for better lubricity. Its diamond polishing can achieve finishes from D3 to A1. The company’s newest coating, Diamond EN, has the uniform corrosion resistance of electroless nickel with the added toughness of diamond particles for 57RC. Samples of coatings are available in in booth W118 at NPE2018.
These are overlooked components that can cost you thousands.
Bringing rapid prototyping capabilities in-house is becoming a reality for many plastics manufacturers, thanks to more affordable, faster, and easy-to-use 3D printers.
U.S. injection molders are still pretty green when it comes to processing the new crop of renewably sourced biopolymers. These biologically derived polymers made from PLA, PHA and starch-based resins are attracting growing market interest as materials with no ties to petrochemical-based thermoplastics.
