Our temporary masking products are used in electronics manufacturing and all types of surface finishing applications – protecting parts during soldering, powder coating, conformal coating, plating, acid stripping, anodising, chemical milling or plating.
How MTU Aero Engines is using a liquid mask to revolutionise its surface processing
MTU Aero Engines, a leading German manufacturer of military and civil aircraft engines, sought an efficient and repeatable alternative to manually applied masking tapes for their valuable components. By implementing Dymax Speedmask and automated dispensing equipment to the process, the team at MTU greatly increased throughput, reduced costly rejects, and achieved near zero tolerance levels.
Improving masking process for electroless nickel plating in Aerospace and Defense applications
A manufacturer of landing gear and actuation systems for the aerospace market was looking for efficiencies in their electroless nickel plating process. They wanted to automate the masking process and increase throughput, which they achieved with Dymax SpeedMask 7601 and a Dymax BlueWave 200 UV curing lamp.
Coatings expertise set to automate the aerospace industry
A leading UK aerospace company commissioned Astech Projects to build a bespoke Automated Masking System to mask complex areas of aircraft components in order to avoid precious metal coverage during the manufacturing process. Astech worked with Intertronics to incorporate precision volumetric dispensing, Dymax SpeedMask resin, and high intensity UV curing lamps.
