In a coating company PCA developed the automation of the complete production process. In this process several actions are done (pumping ground water, transportation, pre-treatment, drying and baking of the pieces in ovens, water purification, etc). PCA developed the control and complete visualisation of the process.
Our client realizes custom-made containers. These containers contain an electric generator that is driven by a diesel engine. The cooling of the container is crucial for the proper functioning of the machines. Therefore, the manufacturer relied on Almeco for the supply of two fans of type AVK1000 in Atex execution.

The extrusion of aluminium requires regular cleaning of the dies. Cleaning of the dies involves two steps. First, the dies are immersed in a heated solution of NaOH for a certain period of time. During this process, the aluminum that is present will dissolve and thus the die is cleaned.
For the construction of their new pre-treatment line (vertical SAT tunnel + immersion booths) a considerable flow rate of demineralised water was required as well as a large wastewater treatment. Both challenges were entirely in-house developed, produced and delivered by PCA.
When building a new line for the chemical pre-treatment and powder coating of aluminium profiles, the company Wilms (Meerhout) chose PCA to handle its water management. The objective was to eliminate any waste water.
