An electrolytic process that coats metal with a protective or decorative film; used primarily with nonferrous metals, principally aluminum.
The process is called anodizing because the part to be treated is the anode of the electrical circuit used for the process.
Anodizing increases corrosion resistance and wear resistance, and provides better adhesion for paint primers and glues than does bare metal.
Since its inception, Amada America, Inc. has provided manufacturers with innovative, productivity-enhancing sheet metal machines, including both fiber and CO2 lasers, turret punch presses, press brakes, automation systems, and software. We accomplish this by carefully listening to the voice of our customers and engineering machine solutions that solve their sheet metal fabrication needs.
