Individual Coating Concepts for your Anti-friction Coatings
When applying anti-friction coatings to pistons, Sprimag always uses the screen printing method. This method allows the pistons to be given a coating with sharp edges at a constant thickness. In contrast to previously used spraying processes, silk-screen printing causes negligible discoloration. It involves using a squeegee to press a highly viscous coating agent through a screen, which rolls over the circumference of the piston, transferring the coating paste onto the piston following the contour of the screen.
When applying anti-friction coatings to bearing shells, the compact Sprimag automatic round-table coating machine is often used. This machine can be adapted to specific customer requirements. Different cycle operations, the coating of rotating parts, and the coating of stationary parts with a rotating extension – and even both options if required – are possible.
