After Poland's machine assemble, we went to Ukraine's customer site directly for the maintenance training and new coating process's R&D.
In Ukraine, no electroplating line is allowed to use, there is strictly policy by gonverment to protect the environment. So our customer has been doing the R&D experiments with PVD plating + Base/Top coating by spraying painting process on zamak (zinc alloy) door handles and door handle plates.
One and half year has passed, what is the testing result? Are they ready for market promotion? What the main issue they are facing now? How we can assist them to solve the bottleneck?... with tons of questions, we arrived Ukraine's factory and guess what we found out?
PVD copper deposition film
PVD black, bronze,antique-brass colors.
The coating process is: Lacquer--PVD color--Lacquer. Except deep black color can not be done, other colors are very good finishing.
We are so happy to see this result.
On 29th. 30th, Sep. our engineer Mr. Shi and customer's PVD technician has cleaned the machine completely:
1. All pumps oil change
2. All vacuum pipes clean
3. Checking any exposion of water and gas tubes
