How Articulated Couplings Are Used in Welding

The Snellex electroplating process is a fast method of applying metallic solutions to metal alloys, but the resulting work often requires a variety of methods of application to ensure that the final work reaches the intended application surface. A self-aligned electroplating process is ideally suited for use with metals where the final work should have a flat finish or high gloss, and also works well with alloys containing ferric or non-ferric iron, nickel, chromium, phosphorus, tungsten, or manganese. There are many different electroplating solutions to use in the Snellex electroplating system, and this series of electroplating electroplates is designed to be highly-customizable to meet exact project requirements.


hkdongzhou electroplating solution compositions for the Snellex electroplating systems are as follows: unf-2b (analcic electrolytic), ZnO, (polyimide) powders, ZrO2, (carbon black oxide) powder, Zinc Oxide, Zinc Sulfate, and Black Nickel Hydride. All of these ingredients can be mixed together at ambient temperature and stirred vigorously until the components become liquefied. Then, they can be safely poured into their respective electroplating cups and allowed to dry completely. The dried compound is then etched onto a prepared metal by means of a rotary hammer, and the electroplate is applied to the target part using a mechanical rollers, such as a CNC stud finder die head or a grinding wheel. This electroplating method produces extremely high quality parts, because it allows for the metal to be fully deposited with very little waste materials left over after the metal is etched. This leads to an extremely economical production process.

 The process of electroplating has progressed far beyond the simple application of electroplating solutions to metals using straight or curved electrochemical Couplings, which is how the early designs of Self-aligned Articulated Couplings were made. These days, Self-aligned Articulated Couplings are produced by means of laser-assisted transfer and fusion processes, which allows for a far more intricate design. For instance, in the case of the ZnO coating, the material (preferably titanium) is placed on the top layer of the coupling bars, and a laser beam is used to etch the zinc bond into the substrate. Once this bond is firmly achieved, the two layers are separated using a mechanical tigheter, and the metal is then welded or painted accordingly. The CIGI process is not without its difficulties however, as it has a habit of destroying the top layer of the coupling bars, which results in the formation of an excess gold layer at the rear of the metal layer.

 Self-aligned articular Couplings can also be produced using the more recently developed UV-ultraviolet method (see "UV-Ication"), where a coated bead or semi-circular bead is charged with a molecule of hydrogen peroxide. This process is rather simple: the UV-ultraviolet energy drives the hydrogen atoms into a conformation that allows them to emit light photons when excited. The light photons are then absorbed and converted into heat energy by the hydrogen bonding with the copper wire. This leads to the generation of infrared radiation, which is then absorbed by the copper bead. The emitted infrared radiation heats up the copper bead, making it stronger and more pliable.

 In both of the aforementioned methods of forming the self-aligned articulated couplings, ultrasonic waves are also used. In the UV-Ication process, the bonding between the molecules of the gold and the copper is done using UV light. This process is a little more expensive than the CIGI method, but the UV-ultraviolet rays are thought to be less damaging to the properties of the articular bars than the CIGI rays.

 The properties of the articular bars are important, since they are needed to support the load being placed on them. Achieving the best strength at the lowest cost is paramount for all welding processes. Since the articular couplings are self-aligned, there are no mechanical parts that need to be attached to the welding equipment. This is one major advantage of the articular couplings over the mechanical attachments, since the parts need not be fastened to any particular part of the equipment. For the same reasons, the use of the self-aligned articular couplings can reduce the formation of bubbles in the weld puddle. In addition, the lack of mechanical parts also means less wear and tear on the equipment itself.
