Rocklin Manufacturing Co. will exhibit its Rocklinizer carbide application equipment, which deposits titanium carbide, tungsten carbide and Rockhard electrode onto metals, tools and dies. The spark deposition process is said to alleviate metal-on-metal wear, enhance gripping, help maintain dimensions and extend the life of machinery.

The portable 950 model deposits as little as 0.0001" to 0.0100" and higher onto the base material, and is said to be controllable within 0.0001" by digital machine setting for precision.

The unit is designed for fast application speed, which is ideal for coating large parts and dies. The company says that a 5-in.² coating takes less than one minute via high-speed settings. The process can be slowed for more delicate operations.
