SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES Presents New Production Line for Three-Dimensional Components at Hanover Fair 2015
- Lacquering and vacuum coating integrated into inline process
- Technology presented at the Surface Technology Trade Show in Hanover
- New order for a production line received
The SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG (SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES) will present its new production line DECOLINE II for the manufacturing and processing of three-dimensional components at this year's Hanover Fair within the scope of the special exhibition "Surface Technology".
SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES has developed a new production line, which integrates the vacuum metalization as well as all lacquering and pre-processing steps in a production process and which automatically transports the parts.
With the optimized coating technology the DECOLINE II substantially differentiates itself from traditional coating processes and thus meets all the requirements to revolutionize the conventional products processing of plastic, glass and metal components. Amongst others, the line concept is applicable for the packaging industry (cosmetics, bottle caps), household appliances (oven knobs, control elements, consumer electronics (smart phone devices, MP3-players), interior and exterior car parts, the lighting industry (reflectors, mirrors) as well as two- and three-dimensional components of various kinds.
Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck, CEO of SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG, comments: "This new solution for the finishing of three-dimensional components is almost unique. It results in considerable cost savings and simplifies logistics. With our new DECOLINE II we offer the industry a cleaner process and substantial advantages to simplify the production processes."
The vacuum cathode sputtering is a fast and reliable method. In contrast to the batch production of vaporization techniques, this solution automates the manufacturing process and with its short cycle times and timely quality controls reduces the production costs significantly. Through the use of UV-lacquers and the ability to recycle these, the output of environmentally-burdening emissions is minimized.
An essential step for the economic production is the take-up of components, which are supplied as bulk goods. The parts are automatically picked up and correctly positioned for the DECOLINE II. Optionally, the parts can be automatically transported in the production line from an injection-molding machine. Components with a diameter of up to 65 mm and a size of up to 135 mm can be processed.
