Valencia, January 29th 2018.- Cabycal has designed, manufactured and installed a passivation line for aluminum parts for the Gestamp plant in Newton Aycliffe (England).
The pretreatment process of the pieces is carried out in a total of nine tanks, in which the following process is carried out: degreasing, washing with industrial water, acid for the passivation process and washing with demineralized water.
After the immersion process in the tanks, automatic drying takes place inside a convection oven with recirculation and heating with a burner with natural gas.
The pieces are transported throughout the process by three automatic overhead travelling cranes, a power & free conveyor and two transfer systems to transfer the parts of the conveyor to the bridge cranes and vice versa.
Cabycal has previously supplied three e-coat lines to Gestamp for its factories in Zaragoza (Spain), Wroclaw (Poland) and Chattanooga (USA).
