Whether you’re looking to remove phosphate coating, e-coating, powder coating, or epoxy, there is not a single method that works best for all applications. Laser cleaning, chemical stripping, abrasive blasting, burn-off ovens, induction heating, and other methods all come with different benefits and limitations.
The most common methods for e-coating removal include burn-off ovens, sandblasting, and chemical stripping. A more modern technology is laser cleaning. It is adopted by manufacturers who need speed and precision, as well as those who want to get rid of consumables.
Laser dust removal is the process of removing dust from a surface using laser ablation. Any types of dusts produced in work environments can be removed, such as metallic, plastic and organic dust. As the laser beam irradiates the surface, burnt off dust is vaporized and extracted using a dust extraction nozzle
If you’ve ever stripped the phosphate coating off a part, or managed a phosphate conversion coating process, chances are you’ve seen your fair share of chemicals. If you want to get rid of chemicals during phosphate coating removal, laser cleaning may be the solution you’re looking for.
Cleaning up aluminum before welding is essential to make sure that the end product is structurally strong. If you’ve done your research on how to best do it, you probably found the same information everywhere.
Removing oxide from aluminum usually comes as a necessary evil to ensure that high-quality parts are manufactured. If you’ve manually cleaned oxides before, you’ve probably spent a lot on manual labor and had a hard time ensuring consistent results.
