  • SITUATION

    1. Produced parts: Truck rims

     

    Our customer was producing 30kg aluminum truck rims using two coating methods: a primer film and an insulating film.

    Productivity with this process was very low, 7 rims per hour were being produced, the protective coating had to be repaired every 2 hours and replaced every 4 days. This increased maintenance shutdowns and reduced the productivity of the plant.

  • OUR SOLUTION

    After studying the case, our R&D department proposed two release agents from the CASTFLOW GR line, which were tested in several trials at the customer’s plant. A specific lubricant for the sides and upper parts of the die and another one for the base of the die.

    With Metalflow’s low pressure and gravity release agents, our customer was able to improve the productivity:

    • Minor film repairs every 2 days
    • Re-application of the product every 12 days
    • Die cleaning and new product application every 20 days.

  • 80% downtime reduction
  • Increased productivity
  • Lower production costs
