Saving Robots From Corrosion

When it comes to performance, protection, and polish, Jet-Hot welcomes new challenges. Check out below how we came up with a coating solution for a robotic production line.

PROBLEM: Thermal oxidation of robotic connections handling parts repetitively at 350C. A need was identified to insulate the heat transfer from the parts to the robot components reducing the risk of damage to the expensive robots.

SUBSTRATE: SAE 1018 Steel

COATING: Ceramic metallic E1300 with a satin finish

RESULTS: Full coating of the parts has worked well in this application, reducing the heat transfer to the robotics while still protecting the parts from contamination and wear. These parts cycle approximately 200,000 times before they are changed out. With the improved performance, the parts can be used longer and allow for less downtime on the assembly line.
