Do you own an automotive company? Or perhaps you lease our cars or have a car hire company? You definitely need to get yourself acquainted with impregnation technology. Just in case you are hearing this for the first time, impregnation is all about coating electronic parts chemically to improve their durability and quality. Some of the benefits of impregnation are improved mechanical performance and reduced resistance performance. Impregnation methods vary, and while some need heat treatment, some just apply coat on the component. The type of impregnation machine used is also plays a vital role.
What is IM? (Impregnation Technology)
Have you found yourself in a situation where your clients or customers made serious complaints about your products that they are not as sharp as before? The solution to this ugly situation may be impregnation technology. Now, what’s impregnation technology? To be brief with the meaning, this is basically the coating of electronic or metal part, which is usually the parts that conduct electricity and heat, and the component may be a heat exchanger or a copper wire. The coat may be double layers of industrial chemicals, vanishes, resins or even a single coat. The heating technique is mostly used by people to settle and activate the product.
Top-notch or global automotive and electronic companies use impregnation technology because it helps in various ways which include increasing customer satisfaction, reducing repairs cost among others.
Benefits of impregnation technology
- Increases resistance capacity towards trauma and shock
- Transfers electricity and heat easily without much resistance
- Increase level of customer satisfaction
- Reduction in repair cost
- Increment in the lifespan of electrical components. Impregnation helps in preserving their quality since they lose their conductivity and ability over time
- Heat exchangers maintain capacity months after they have been used
How can I perform impregnation?
Impregnation technology can be done in different ways. Generally, the product or the metal will be dipped into a sealing compound. After that, the temperature will be increased and the components or metal will be given time to cure. Lastly, everything will be allowed to cool off in order to finalize or complete the curing. The output will depend on the quality of the impregnation machine. To have a successful impregnation, the following steps should be followed:
This process involves coating the product with sealing solution such as sealants, resins, etc. Trickling involves rotating the product quickly about its axis in the fluids. Hot dipping is all about heating the component in order to give the viscous resin a way to pass through the slots. Roll dripping involves rotating the product in the varnish. This process enables every hole to be coated.
This is done to alter the substance temperature in order to have a temperature that can be sustained. The techniques used in achieving this vary; however, some are done by inserting heating gel into the resin.
The product will be allowed to remain in the needed temperature for some time. The shape, material, density and size will determine the time and temperature to be used for the product. The work of curing is to give strength to resins.
The product will be allowed to cool off after it has been cured. This can be achieved by either putting the product in a freezer or any cool place.
After all that, the component is now fully ready for use with any industrial processes you wish to include in it. Durability level will increase and your customer will be satisfied.
When choosing your impregnation machine, you should consider what you want to use it for.
