The design, manufacturing, supply and installation of automated aluminium anodizing lines
Galvatek supplies automated anodizing systems mainly to the aviation and aluminium industries. In the aviation industry, automated aluminium surface treatment plants are used for the chemical treatment of challenging aircraft parts and frame components. Aluminium anodizing plants can also be combined with etching, cleaning and non-destructive testing (NDT) processes. In the aluminium industry, the process often also includes electro-coloring for the production of aluminium profiles and components.
Aluminium anodizing process with CAA, SAA, BSAA, TSAA and PAA
Galvatek’s anodising plants for the aviation industry are mainly used for high-grade aircraft parts, aerostructures and other aluminium components. Anodizing plants for the aluminium industry are typically designed for the high-capacity anodizing of profiles.
Anodizing is an electrolytic passivation process that is used to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts. Aluminium alloys are anodized to increase corrosion resistance and surface hardness, as well as to allow dyeing (colouring), improved lubrication, or improved adhesion. Different anodizing processes include hard anodizing, chromic acid anodizing (CAA), sulphuric acid anodizing (SAA), boric sulphuric acid anodizing (BSAA), tartaric sulphuric acid anodizing (TSAA) and phosphoric acid anodizing (PAA), all of which are made possible by Galvatek anodizing plants.
