The Metallisation ARC528E-ICC twin wire arc spray systems, with either the 250 amp or 350 amp energiser, offers the ultimate in reliability and precision for demanding production applications. This includes both anti-corrosion and engineering coatings.

Wire drive is supplied at the heavy-duty pistol by a highly accurate, powerful DC servo motor, driving 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.

To further reduce machine downtime, the supplies package can be chosen with a quick release option, enabling the pistol to be removed quickly from the line and either maintained or exchanged for a spare pistol for preventative maintenance routines.

The ARC528E-ICC has a range of PLC controlled energisers with closed loop current control. This enables the operator to set the spray current independent of wire type before starting the job, enabling easier setup and protection of the system from over-current. The control function is now controlled by a simple PLC which ensures improved reliability as less component parts are required. It also makes fault finding simple using a standard multimeter with the I/O for the PLC. All of the control electronics are in a sealed area of the energiser to protect them from the often harsh, production environment.

The ARC528E-ICC is offered with a 250 amp or 350 amp energiser, depending on your production and throughput requirements. As an alternative, a high throughput version, ARC528E-ICC-HT, is offered with 700 amp or 1000 amp energisers.

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.
