Family of high-performance, corrosion-inhibiting coatings, used as stand-alone coating or hybrid pre-treatment

Effective immediately, InterCoat® ChemGuard is now a registered trademark of Eco-Green Coatings, LLC a division of Chemcoaters, Inc., the Gary, Indiana-based coil coater in service to metals producers, service centers and OEMs nationwide.   This announcement was made today by company president Bill Capizzano at Chemcoaters headquarters.

The InterCoat® ChemGuard family of stand-alone coatings and hybrid pretreatments is highlighted by the ChemGuard 300 Series, a RoHS-compliant (hexavalent chrome-free) coating that features the unique chemistry of trivalent chromium vs. the standard hexavalent chromium used for decades in the metals coating industry.  With comparable or, in many applications, superior corrosion resistance to hexavalent chrome treatments, this coating bridges the long-standing divide between performance and environmentally-friendly product in the market.

InterCoat® ChemGuard is a highly corrosion-inhibiting and adhesion-enhancing coating technology that creates a permanent covalent reaction with any zinc or zinc-alloy coated substrate.   Used as a hybrid pretreatment, the product enhances corrosion resistance in a 20%-50% thinner coating onto the substrate, while exceeding the prevalent corrosion standards in industry, ASTM A1003/A1003M.

Since its development in 2011, the InterCoat® ChemGuard family has grown to include a RoHS compliant trivalent chrome product with many color tinted versions of the product now available.

Used as a pretreatment, InterCoat® ChemGuard is an ideal complement to pre- and post-paint, powder and other surface coating requirements.

Originally developed for the metal stud and other building/construction applications, InterCoat® ChemGuard coatings are now used extensively in end products for the transportation (automotive, bus, truck and RV), consumer products (appliance, power-gen, and HVAC), agricultural and off-highway vehicle markets, among others.

FARMINGTON HILLS, MI – At IMTS 2014, EMAG will feature Manufacturing Systems for Precision Metal Components with multiple machines from its new modular standard VL and VT product families on display. These Modular Standard Machines offer a systematic approach that is advantageous to establishing a highly efficient manufacturing process, with different operations offered on the same platform allowing for easy interlinking and eliminating any great outlay for automation.

 

The VL 2 Vertical Turning Machine from EMAG is designed for the quality- and cost-conscious manufacturer and sub-supplier: a universal production aid that impresses with its small footprint and advantageous price-performance ratio – automatic workhandling included.

The VL 2 Vertical Turning Machine from EMAG is designed for the quality- and cost-conscious manufacturer and sub-supplier: a universal production aid that impresses with its small footprint and advantageous price-performance ratio – automatic workhandling included.

The VL vertical pick-up lathe series opens up new opportunities for the machining of a wide range of chucked components. Small gearwheels, planetary gears, sun gears, sliding sleeves synchronizer rings or flange components, for example, can be machined with great efficiency. The smallest lathe of the VL product family, the VL 2, machines workpieces with a maximum diameter of four inches and a length of up to six inches. Increasing in size, the VL 4, VL 6 and VL 8 offer a number of different turning and milling operations within the framework of a single closed-loop production process. Specially designed for the handling of large components the largest vertical turning machine of the series, the VL 8, ideal for commercial vehicle production, handles workpieces up to 16 inches in diameter and 12 inches in length.

Built within the same modular concept is the VT-Series for machining large quantities of shaft components. With four axes, a self-loading turret and integrated automation, the VT 2-4 machines shafts with a max diameter of 2.5 inches and 16 inches in length. Spindle speeds of up to 6,000 rpm achieve extremely short cycle times as the shaft is clamped vertically between workspindle and tailstock and machined from two sides. The vertical alignment of the workpiece ensures process integrity, where the unhindered chip flow prevents the build-up of chip nests in the machining area.

Machining area of the VL 2: 12 turning or, alternatively, up to 12 driven drilling and milling tools can be employed to carry out a large number of operations in a single setup. The machine can also be equipped with an optional Y-axis.

All machines of the VL and VT product families offer the same advantages for every size workpiece:

  • A pick-up spindle/turret loads the machine itself, picking up the raw parts from the integrated conveyor and returning the finish machined component.
  • A 12-station tool turret known for very short indexing times. For drilling and milling operations it can also be equipped with driven tools in all 12 stations.
  • Service units that are quickly and freely accessible, making for short set-up and change-over times.
  • A machine base out of MINERALIT® polymer concrete to ensure stability through outstanding damping qualities, resulting in exceptional surface finishes.
  • Optional Y axis

 

The VLC 200 H is designed for the machining of gear-type workpieces of maximum 200 mm diameter and module 4.

The VLC 200 H is designed for the machining of gear-type workpieces of maximum 200 mm diameter and module 4.

Integrating the technologies of the EMAG Group into these new modular standards, the VLC 200 H will make its North American debut at the McCormick Center. The VLC 200 H hobbing machine integrates EMAG-KOEPFER technology into the EMAG vertical platform, including the pick-up design where the main spindle removes the raw part from the conveyor belt, transfers it to the tailstock flange and removes it from the machining area after the completion of the hobbing cycle. Gears with a maximum diameter of 8 inches and module 4 can be dry-milled at greatly shortened cycle times.

EMAG will also present its entire portfolio of production technologies, from turning, hobbing and grinding to those that complement traditional metalworking processes, such as its production Laser Welding, Heat Shrink Technology and Electro-Chemical Machining (ECM) capabilities. ECM processes offer non-contact machining with no heat affected zone or mechanical stress to components with no tool wear. An ECM machined blisk will also be on display.

EMAG invites manufacturers to visit them at booth N-6846 to meet with technology experts to discuss production solutions for the automotive and commercial vehicle, aerospace, and oilfield industries. For more information on the entire EMAG Group portfolio, visit www.emag.com

Siemens SINUMERIK Family

Siemens SINUMERIK Family

From the job shop to the retrofit operation, moldmakers to mass production departments at the world’s leading auto, aero and medical manufacturers, Siemens continues to push the envelope on CNC technology.  With the introduction of the Sinumerik 808D at IMTS in 2012, we took a bold step into the job shop world, as this basic CNC brings the power, flexibility and reliable performance of Siemens technology to the job shop.  Already accepted as an OEM component by numerous mill and lathe builders, the 808D provides job shops the unique opportunity to apply advanced and unmatched CNC power to their existing machines, breathing “new life into old iron,” as the saying goes.

The 808D rounds out the growing family of CNC models from Siemens, which now spans the range from the most basic 3-axis machines to dedicated milling and turning center controls in the Sinumerik 828D to CNC for the most advanced five-axis machining centers, with full robotic integration, secondary ops management and transfer line capability, all on a single control, the Sinumerik 840D sl solution line, still the benchmark by which all other CNC technology in the market is judged.  Simply put, nobody matches the muscle of Siemens.  Come to booth E-5010 and see the difference.   Productivity in Motion!
