The Metallisation ARC145/245 with closed loop current control is a unique blend of ability and innovation. The ARC145 system offers a great balance of controllable throughput with flexible operation and the opportunity to have extended supplies packages up to 50m from the energiser to the pistol. A number of new features are included to enable reliable spraying at 250A, 100% continuous duty cycle. These include a new pistol front end with contact tips instead of solid tubes; a heavy duty drive unit with new, v -shaped reversible rollers; heavy duty supplies package/manifold and a 250A energiser with high-specification digital meters and the latest PLC for connectivity to master control systems. These features combine to give a flexible, reliable and manageable solution for small to medium scale thermal spray applications, producing quality, fine surface finish coatings.
