Here is an
anodizing in an adjacent building of a CNC machine shop. This
line was put together because the owner of the machine shop
was sick and tired of relying on anodizing shop to anodize
his parts. He wanted to be able to control this lead
time as well as anodize quality. This shop also pay
for itself in about 6-9 months in the money saved from
having to send out anodizing work to an outside vendor.
This line was built to anodize the vast array of custom
machined boat parts fabricated at this machine shop.
All the parts are Electropolished and then anodized with a
clear bright finished.
Above left is
the aluminum soak tank and an aluminum brightener tank.
The picture to the right is the Desmut AL tank. Behind the tanks on the right is a
DI/RO water system for replenishing evaporated water in the
process tanks. This negates the need for buying
distilled water all the time. You can also see this same DI/RO water
system below too.
directly above and below are
pictures of the anodizing tanks. The bussing is done
with solid 6063 aluminum and the cathodes are made from 1000
series high purity aluminum. The clamps on the center
bus bars are used to hold down the anodizing racks and
secure the parts to the anode bus bar to insure proper current transfer
to the anodize parts.
The bottom middle and the bottom right is the Mid Temp
Sealer tank. This is a non boiling sealer used in most
of our commercial anodizing applications. It requires
heating much lower than hot seals, therefore it is more
efficient and safer to use.
the Decorative Anodizing tank and the Mid Temp Sealer is
filtered with Flo King filter systems. It is the black
unit with the blue top sitting in the back of the tanks.
The filter system is used to
clean the tank solution, therefore insuring a long and trouble free solution life.
Just above at
the right is a fume scrubber for venting the Bright Dip
tank. The other pictures below are some other miscellaneous pictures from the shop.
Hope you enjoy the tour.
