Top 10 Surface Technology Solutions - 2020

Surface engineering has traditionally played a crucial role in protecting materials from corrosion and wear protection. With that in mind, the widespread proliferation of this technology in industries, such as aerospace, construction, energy, oil and gas, and more, does not come as a surprise. And since factors, such as increased service life of machines are forcing manufacturers to improve and optimize surface technology continually, the need of the hour is surface engineering processes fused with digitalization. The emergence of innovative, digitalized surface technology has dramatically influenced and drove significant developments in coating and treatment process technologies. In addition, the growing trend of product individualization is boosting the surface technology processes and solutions beyond its current state.

Several surface treatment plants are now leveraging AI to increase output capacity and quality. The combination of humans and technology is pushing manufacturers to form advanced coatings and surface engineering strategies. This is also pushing design engineers to lookout for new and innovative technologies that provide optimal surface protection. This quest presents two essential tasks in front of them. On the one hand, they require a standardized process with defined specifications of both product surface and coating materials. And, on the other, design engineers and manufacturers need to integrate selected materials technologies into corresponding supply chains.

At this juncture, a wide variety of surface technology solution providers and consulting companies are entering the industry with a set of advanced and integrated offerings. Manufacturing Technology Insights has compiled a list of the top 10 surface technology solutions and services providers to help manufacturers will improve their surface engineering practices and simultaneously enable growth in the industry. Besides, the magazine also includes insights from thought leaders in the sector on the industry trends, best practices, recent innovations, and their advice for the aspiring CIOs.

We present to you Manufacturing Technology Insights’, “Top 10 Surface Technology Solutions – 2020.”

Top Surface Technology Solutions

MMP Technology develops a high precision micro-machining process (MMP) technology, to obtain super-finished surfaces by selectively removing specific ranges of roughness from an engineered standpoint. The working of the MMP technology adopts a mix of mechanical and catalytic process, super-precision engineered finishing technology that starts with measuring surface roughness through a Fourier transform to break the surface roughness down into electrical signals. Thus, the company has forms a cutting tool keyed to the roughness being targeted and selectively removes specific roughness frequencies, and finally fine-tunes the surface until the desired critical roughness frequency is achieved

Highland International

 Highland International

Highland International represents the future of coatings technology. We began producing specialized coating systems in 1989 when a need was recognized in the Hot Mix Asphalt industry that was not being met. We wanted to provide the very “BEST” high temperature coating systems to fill the voids in this industry. With this goal, we implemented formulation concepts and ideas that not only solved this industry’s coating problems, but tapped into the needs of other industries requiring specific high temperature needs as well. As things fell into place with Highland’s HiTemp Coating Line, other revolutionary ideas were pursued. Highland Dry-Fall “Spray-Safe” Line was born followed by HiTemp Dry-Fall, Chem-Temp, and Aero-Shield Lines -- to name a few, all of which are now being used to solve application and corrosion issues in an array of industrial applications
