Bulten GmbH, a manufacturer and supplier of fasteners, has begun using a coating line that enables the fully automated coating of fasteners — which includes Dörken MKS corrosion protection.
The coating of fasteners or bulk parts is typically extremely important for long-term protection. It’s also critical to apply coatings properly, which can be challenging to do for complex, geometrical components.
Additionally, to produce an even and highly effective corrosion protection layer, many processes must be coordinated.
Ideally, this starts with a pre-treatment to the coating and through to the drying process. It’s also important to ensure the fasteners for coating are free of oil and debris.
A new video by Dörken MKS in cooperation with Bulten GmbH shows how a coating material is applied to a fastener so that it gets a defined coefficient of friction. The coating line is of compact design and is suitable for the fully automatic coating of such bulk parts.
