With so much happening in a busy show year between NPE2018, Amerimold 2018 and IMTS 2018, MoldMaking Technology is revisiting some of the technology that was on display. In case you missed it: Samples of coatings from Bales Metal Surface Solutions were on display at Amerimold 2018.

Bales Metal Surface Solutions provides coatings and finishes to protect from wear, abrasion and corrosion. Its coatings can increase hardness for better durability and lower the coefficient of friction for better lubricity. Its diamond polishing can achieve finishes from D3 to A1. The company’s newest coating, Diamond EN, has the uniform corrosion resistance of electroless nickel with the added toughness of diamond particles for 57RC. Samples of coatings were available in in booth 307 at Amerimold 2018.
