NEW SAMPLE SUBMISSION PROCESS CREATES CUSTOMER VALUE.
Neil Goodnight, Director of Technical Services
September marked the launch of our new sample analysis submission process for Asterion's proprietary plating and pretreatment chemistries. Designed to ensure ease-of-use and quick customer response, the submission process meets growing customer requirements to optimize plating line efficiency and productivity at a low cost of ownership.
Customers may submit up to ten sample requests per submission. Every sample is assigned an identifier number for testing at Asterion’s advanced analytical laboratory. Furthermore, free sample submission kits are offered to customers. The kits include all required packing materials and shipping documentation that are specifically designed to meet regulatory requirements. The new process expedites sample analysis response time, while assisting Asterion customers to meet mandated shipping requirements. Read more
Alkaline Zinc: Ensuring a Bright Solution without Sacrifice.
Roger Sowinski, Vice President Technology
If I was asked to make a customer wish list, “get my alkaline zinc bath brighter,” would most definitely be near the top of that list. This request would be followed by the comment, “And…while you’re at it, make sure that my bath:
…does not sacrifice efficiency and throughput, and;
…continues to maintain consistent metal distribution over a range of current densities”
Making an alkaline zinc bath brighter seems straight forward enough. Just add more brightener and you’re all set. Right? If it were only that simple. In reality, brightener additions are more often than not extremely problematic for platers.
