£1m investment in new chemical treatment line The new line is computer controlled with


fully-automated loading, immersion and transfer capabilities through the 3ft, 5ft and 8ft baths. Kaman is seeking NADCAP accreditation for the line and expects to secure it by the end of the year. The line already includes NADCAP-approved penetrant flaw detection plant and spray/ bake paint and primer equipment. The Kaman team will demonstrate the


capabilities of the new treatment line with a series of presentations to more than 75 key industry figures. Kaman’s range of special processes is


A


erospace innovator, Kaman UK, has invested over £1m in a new chemical treatment line,


which will deliver surface treatment techniques to the aerospace industry. Christopher Morris, Kaman UK’s managing


director, sees the new chemical treatment line as an excellent addition to the existing production processes. He said: “This is a significant stage in the development of the Darwen site which will bring extensive benefits to our customers. There is a huge demand for treatments capability in the industry and this line will deliver an efficient and cost-effective solution.”


expanded through the new line and includes chromic acid anodise (CAA), chemical conversion coating (Alocrom 1200), acid pickle and clean of titanium, vac blast, zinc spray, welding and paint finishing. Plans are also in place to introduce


Tartaric/Sulphuric Anodising (TSA) to further strengthen Kaman’s surface treatments capability. TSA is a replacement technology adopted by the aerospace industry to meet with EU mandates for the reduction of hazardous materials in the working environment (REACH), whilst giving comparable levels of corrosion protection and coating quality.
