Black anodising for leading air-bearing specialist

Tecan : 25 September, 2002  (Company News)
Weymouth based metal finishing specialist, Tecan, has supplied tens of thousands of defect-free black-anodised aluminium parts, to the world-leading high-precision engineering company, Air Bearings Limited, Poole, Dorset.
Weymouth based metal finishing specialist, Tecan, has supplied tens of thousands of defect-free black-anodised aluminium parts, to the world-leading high-precision engineering company, Air Bearings Limited, Poole, Dorset.

On a weekly basis, for over four years, Tecan has taken high-precision machined aluminium parts for ABL, for in-house Type-1 and Type-3 (hard) black anodising, consistently returning them on time, to specification and with virtually no defects.

'Consistent quality and accuracy are imperative, as are prompt and regular delivery to meet our high quality standards and production needs,' said Ronald Henocq, Air Bearings founder and director. 'Before Tecan, we experienced a wide range of problems with other plating suppliers, particularly with hard black anodising - where rejects, scrap and poor corrosion resistance were all prevalent. I am happy to state that in my fifty year's experience in the world of high-precision engineering I have never had dealings with a plating company as proficient and cooperative as Tecan, their anodising is the best I have ever seen and the quality is first class. Over our four-year relationship we have had no trouble whatsoever. Aesthetics, accuracy and corrosion resistance are all excellent, and defects are exceptionally rare.'

Tecan hard black anodises in excess of twenty different parts for ABL, including spindle bodies, piston cylinders and end caps. The parts require varying levels of hard anodisation, typically in the ranges 15/20, 25/35 or 35/45 microns.

Regular analysis and control, particularly of the black dye used in the process and a 'clean room' approach to production, along with ongoing attention to fine detail, contribute to the supply of consistently high standard parts.
