STAKU Anlagenbau Gmbh/Germany, a company that specializes in surface preparation and coating systems for the ferrous and non-ferrous wire industries.
STAKU, specializing in electrolytical surface treatment processes, with almost 50 years of experience, is offering its portfolio of cleaning and coating system being used for copper plating of welding wire, phosphating system for inline coating & drawing lines and high speed cleaning lines for removing lubricants and other surface contaminents after drawing.
STAKU, located in central Germany with representation world-wide, offers individual solutions as well as complete turn key projects including installation and commissioning, for companies around the globe.
Under the brand name e-systems, STAKU has summarized its individual processes and holds several Europeen and International patents for protecting their expertise.
e-systems - Patented processes for surface pre-treatment and refinement of metallic semi-finished products
e-clean: Cleaning lines - electrolytic degreasing and pickling
e-copp: Copperplating lines - for welding wire production
e-phos: Phosphating lines - for the drawing and for CHQ
e-molyphos: Phosphating lines - for drawing and forming of stainless steel and titanium
As a further innovation, a revolutionary plant concept for the production of two products could be implemented on one and the same prodution plant in a process called "Dual Use". This mainly relates to the production of copper-plated and nocht copper-plated welding wires as a part of in-line production. Thus by selectively switching on or off the electrolytic copper plating, the high purity wire can be produced with a blanc or copper-plated surface. The process is capable of producing quality products at process speeds up to 30m/s.
With the new e- molyphos coating STAKU is offering a revolutionary new lubrication which was developed for wire drawing and cold forming of alloys, stainless steel and titanium materials. e-molyphos is a lubrication system that matches all named requirements by electrolytic coating in one single bath. In this process, a highly performed solid lubricant is deposited within a matrix of components which also contributes to its superior lubrication properties.
