Armoloy TDC coating. The coating's corrosion-resistance property on bearing steels is equivalent to 440C stainless steel, thus an Armoloy-coated guide or screw is a significantly more cost-effective option than fabricating the same component from stainless steel.Linear motion components, such as linear guides and ballscrews, are an excellent application for the
The Armoloy TDC coating lowers the coefficient of friction of bearing steels, for smoother movement over rolling surfaces, as well as imparting a much higher surface hardness, which improves wear resistance. In addition to reducing dust generation, the coating's micro-nodular surface finish retains less lubricant for longer periods of time, resulting in a cleaner operation.
At a precise .0001/.0002" deposit, Armoloy TDC maintains machining tolerances and insures a smooth reassembly of the rolling element to the linear guide or ballscrew. Armoloy TDC is USDA approved and FDA compliant.
Common applications include linear guides (rails) and blocks, ballscrews and ballnuts, and geared racks and pinions.
