TRI-CHROME PLATING PROCESSEnthone lnc., a business of CooksonElectronics, has introduced TRI-
Left: TRILYTE Dusk overbright nickel. Right:TRILYTE Dusk over PEARLBRIGHT® satin nickel
LYTE® Dusk trivalent chromiumplating process. The environmentallyfriendly process deposits a dark decorative chromium layer over brightor satin nickel deposits.
TRILYTE Dusk produces a dark,lustrous coating that is ideally suitedfor a diversity of decorative automotive applications (e.g. door handles,grill, exterior molding) and household items (e.g. lighting, cabinethardware, furniture, appliance, sanitary fixtures) where fashion finishesare critical to product differentiation.The warm color provides a distinctivefinish for interior applications.
TRILYTE Dusk passes 80 hours ofCASS (in conjunction with multilayer nickel systems), thereby meetingmost OEM exterior specifications.Color reproduction and parts matching is consistently achieved due to theprocesses' stable chemistry and easyoperation that results in the highestyields and quality. TRILYTE Duskoperating solutions remain extremelystable over time, even when operatedinfrequently, resulting in fewerexpensive treatments, additive adjustments and solution replacements forthe applicator. Additionally, theprocess uses graphite anodes avoiding the high start-up and maintenance costs associated with the use ofMOX (iridium alloy) anodes. TRILYTE Dusk meets local environmental standards at a decreased cost dueto reduced water and air treatmentrequirements, along with the associated monitoring time.

cally accept virtually any inpur powersignal. Designed for pure water andchemical applications, the polyprovalves are molded with non-pigmented, plasticizer-free homopolymerresin and are assembled "dry" toeliminate contamination. Availablein 3/8" - 2" sizes, these valves meetFDA and NSF requirements.
The new Series EBVA electricalactuator is available assembled to thevalve and is also sold separately forfuture field installation. Standardvoltage is 85 through 240 AC or DC;an optional version is offered for 12to 24 volt AC or DC operation. Theactuator automatically adjusts to thevoltage provided within its range,providing 177 in/lbs of torque withan 11 second cycle tim e. Manualoverride and status lights are standard; fail-safe and modulating control actuators are also available.

ROBOTIC SHOTPEENING SYSTEMGuyson Corporation recently introduced the Model RB-10 a 7-axisrobotic pressure-blast shot peeningsystem that is designed to supportcompliance with the most demanding process sp ecifications and toenable automated peening of a widevarie ty of dissimilar components.Model RB-l0 was developed for technical surface treatment of gears andaerospace components.
Th e 60 x 60 x 6O-inch blast cabinetis mated with a 6-axis robot, such asthe Fanuc M lOiA, as a blast nozzlemanipulator. The shot peeningmachine's rotary table has a diameterof up to 52 inches and is servomotordriven to be controlled as a seventhaxis of robotic motion. Locat inghardware is provided to allow interchangeable component-holding fixtures to be positively and repeatablypositioned on the turntable.
During the shot peening cycle, theorientation of the component andthe motion of the robotic nozzlemanipulator are synchronized to
precisely replicat e the programmedtool path, following the contours ofcomplex-shaped parts, yet constantlyand accurately maintaining therequired angle of shot impingement,the correct offset of the peening nozzle from the target surface and theright dwell or surface speed to control th e cold working process. Thepeen ing media delivery systemincludes an A.S.M.E.-certified pressure vessel of 3.5 cubic foot capacityfitted with high and low shot levelsensors, a 3 cubic foot media storagehopper that automatically adds shotwhen a low level is detected.
