The Metallisation ARC528E-ACD system offers the ultimate in reliability and precision for ultra-high throughput, demanding production applications with anti-corrosion coatings.

Wire drive is supplied at the proven heavy-duty pistol by a new, powerful brushless AC Inverter motor, through a robust gearbox and drive roller system. The high-performance pistol incorporates proven Metallisation technology, including a unique, constant geometry (CG) head. This ensures smooth and consistent spray quality and minimal downtime when changing consumable spares.

The high throughput ARC528E-ACD pistol connects to one of two Metallisation PLC controlled energisers, either 1000A or 1500A rated.

The drive unit controller is internally mounted within the energiser for improved reliability. The industrial spec. PLC offers reliability and easier maintainability, enabling the system to be fully integrated with production equipment such as ductile iron pipe processing plants.

Arc Spray Process

Arc spray (sometimes referred to as twin wire arc spray) is a process that uses an electric arc to melt wires.

The molten metal is then atomised with compressed air to create a spray stream that applies the coating onto the surface being sprayed.

Anti-corrosion or engineering coatings can be applied by arc spray and changing between the two is quite simple.

Arc spray systems are commonly considered to be easy to operate and also to automate.

Metallisation have a full range of arc spray systems for hand-held and fully automatic / robotic applications.
