AcronymANOBA

Proposal titleNew Accurate Batch Anodising Technology

AbstractAlucol as a SME's involved in batch anodising of aluminium products, e.g. in architectural

applications, is underpressure from legally enforced reductions in energy consumption,

competitive coating techniques, like powder   coating, and market demands for

reproducible and sustainabe products. Using existing anodising technology a   distribution of

oxide layer thickness and quality over a batch of products is obtained, resulting in longer

process   times than necessary and insufficient reproducibility of coloured oxide layers.

This forces us and other   European SME's to seek new ways to improve the energy

efficiency and accuracy of current batch anodising   technology and thereby safeguarding

and widening our market. It is the objective of this proposal to improve the process of

industrial batch anodising with respect to the energy   efficiency and the quality of the

anodic layer by the introduction of new process technology, designed on the   base of

computer simulations and accurate electrochemical data. The hence obtained precise

prediction and   control of process will lead the way to an improvement of the energy

efficiency with 25% by a reduction in   process time.
