Anodizing combines with nature to create one of the world’s best metal finishes. It is the process of electrochemically controlling, accelerating, and enhancing oxidation of an aluminum tube, creating a durable, scratch-resistant coating on the surface. However, the temperature control is one of the most important factor during anodizing, plating and other metal finishing processes. So here we are for any solutions for anodizing cooling.
Several metals can be anodized, and of course aluminum is the most common but the process may also be applied to magnesium, titanium, and tantalum. Anodizing is an “electrochemical conversion process” that changes the outer structure of the metal, rather than an applied coating, like paint. The anodizing of aluminum is performed by making the part that is to be anodized, the “anode” or positive end of an electrical circuit within an acid electrolyte. With electricity applied through the acid from the cathode an oxide layer develops in and on the outer layer of the metal. This outer layer can be formed so that it has a porous quality and the aluminum oxide layer can be dyed in many colors.
Cumond Machinery is a leading manufacturer cooling chillers for metal finish processing, such as anodizing cooling and plating cooling. If any question about how to choose cooling chillers for anodizing or plating or how to calculate cooling capacity, then our engineers are pleasure to hear from you.
