Keronite has the capability to design and build our own machines, from the power supplies and processing units that site at the heart of the process all the way up to a fully integrated system, including pre and post treatment and all of the associated automation. In addition the business has always formulated and manufactured the electrolytes that form the other essential part of the Keronite processing system.
The option to buy a license to and purchase the relevant equipment to operate the license is available to customers with a suitable application or range of application to make this investment the most effective way to enable their supply chain.
Four basic variants of our system currently exist.
|Technology Variant||Key Attributes|
|G2||A versatile, simple version of the technology with power regimes to treat all three target metals (Al,Mg &Ti). Produces very hard surfaces and is ideal for large surface area applications. The layers can be relatively rough and polishing is difficult due to inherent hardness|
|G3 M||Focussed on magnesium and also produces the Black Al treatment. This variant produces smooth, dense layers at relatively high speed.|
|G3 A||This is the most capable version of the technology. This version has the widest range of electrolytes available and can produce most finishes from a simple pre-treatment through to the smooth, dense Keronite® sapphire layer, which is the hardest and most corrosion resistant surface that we produce.|
|KMS||The KMS can be coupled with any of the technology variants above as is predominantly designed for mass production environments requiring millions of pieces per year. The system uses a series of micro-cells to exploit the economics of our large tank technologies while subjecting small numbers of parts to their own micro environment, enabling very high throughput and excellent part to part consistency|
In any Keronite installation the provision of power, chilling capacity and appropriate services including factory air, mains water and DI water are always additional to the core system. This is because these items are often more effectively sourced locally and or they already exist in the customer's site.
