The automotive and aerospace industries make extensive use of light weight parts and complex mechanical and hydraulic control units. A key material for these applications is anodized aluminum. Parts are typically found in:
- Braking system
- Gear box
- Turbo charger
- Steering system
CYKLOS offers important advantages in surface cleaning and protection. It enables a variety of processes to treat surfaces of machined or casted parts.
CYKLOS shows better uniformity than conventional (electro)chemical processes that are used in surface finishing. It operates fully automatic from loading to unloading of the process trays. The modern control system includes a variety of process controls and allows 100 % product traceability.
Using a modular platform design, CYKLOS can be configured to represent any given process flow to treat metal surfaces. CYKLOS has fully encapsulated process modules and the lowest consumption and drag-out of chemicals. Automatic replenishment of chemicals assures a stable process, excellent repeatability and superior yield rates. Connecting it to a waste container and waste water treatment systems makes it a very environmentally friendly system.
The rotation process for the anodizing of aluminum meets the strict requirements of the automotive industry at XingLi without the normally required post-processing. This makes CYKLOS an absolute competitive advantage for the Chinese anodizer. >more
