General Magnaplate Corporation has awarded a license to Precision Surface Technologies (PST) of Grimsby, ON, for its Dynaloy™ enhanced proprietary chrome process. Dynaloy protects any base metal part (except Magnesium) against wear, galling, friction and corrosion. The award follows increased demand for the Dynaloy process in Canada, while PST also has the capability to process vary large parts with a hard chrome coating.
"As the industry leader, General Magnaplate is constantly striving to improve the delivery of its coatings technology," reports Ed Aversenti, COO of General Magnaplate. "We are pleased to announce that PST will be our new licensee in Canada, providing our customers with high quality service, large-scale capabilities and unmatched industry expertise."
Aversenti continues, "Dynaloy has rewritten the specifications of leading machine tool builders by establishing new standards for increased life and extended serviceability of machine guides. Parts can be processed at any stage of their service life without the need for expensive machining operations to follow, which greatly reduces turnaround time and saves money."
General Magnaplate's Dynaloy creates a micro-surface that delivers extreme abrasion resistance with no edge build-up or micro cracks, to ensure optimal protection without affecting the tolerances of metal parts. Dynaloy coatings reproduce, with precise detail, the surface morphology of the original metallic substrate. After processing, parts exhibit an attractive silver matte finish.
Greg Schneider, President of Precision Surface Technologies, comments, "Dynaloy is a much sought after process in Canada, and now customers can look forward to our increased capabilities as we will be able to process parts up to 22 feet in length, 60 inches in diameter, and weighing up to 24,000 pounds. In addition, customers requiring grinding and other machining services on large steel parts (up to 36 feet in length, 60 inches in diameter and weighing 66,000 pounds) can have it completed under one roof. This will reduce delivery times, reduce handling and ensure consistent ISO quality."
