Thousands of friction processes - protected by HART-COAT®

In cold glue labellers, slide guides perform their job by moving slides back and forth - up to 7,000 times per hour. A low-friction, hard anodised layer from AHC significantly reduces the wear of the slider guides.

What honeybees tell us.

What honeybees tell us.

Honeybees recognised the benefits of the hexagonal structure much sooner than we did. In hard anodisation, the oxidation spreads over the entire surface of the workpiece. The oxidation areas collide and eventually cover the entire surface. They form a hexagonal cell structure analogous to honeycombs.
