In the manufacture of metal components, the ability to continuously monitor surface pretreatment processes and to ensure the optimum infeed of the chemicals required is of crucial importance. Henkel’s TCS Engineering department has developed a modular metering and control system under the brand name Lineguard specifically for such applications. With this technology, the world market leader for adhesives, sealants and functional coatings is able to offer fully fledged programmable logic control systems (PLCs) for the precise measurement of bath concentrations and in-process regulation. This fully automatic monitoring, measuring, metering and control concept means that gauging and replenishment errors by operators can be extensively avoided and process costs substantially reduced. A comprehensive master program is currently being installed at the premises of autobody fabricator Tofaş in Turkey. Henkel is also developing a Windows program and an app for the mobile control of such systems.
