A major recreational vehicle manufacturer was seeking zinc alloy capabilities for a specially licensed processed which prevent rust corrosion and extends bearing wear. Greystone's unique partnership with a major bearing manufacturer provided the mechanism
to apply a proprietary alloy coating, Corrotect, which provided the corrosion protection need to extend the life of the mating
The end customer had a worrisome safety & warranty issue that needed a solution for its main drive component. Due to the safety
issues of this vehicle, it was imperative that the customer find a unique, yet proven solution to extend the life of its main drive
component assembly. Because of the extremely tight dimensional tolerances, the coating application thickness control was of
utmost importance for press fit assembly. Additionally, due to the nature & size of the part, heavy duty & durable tooling was
needed to meet high production demands required within a short time frame.
In working with a major bearing manufacturer, the customer was offered a proprietary licensed Corrotect coating that Greystone
offers. Greystone had been a licensed applicator of Corrotect for many years and was equipped to provide the tight tolerances
need for bearing fit while also providing the processing capacity necessary to launch within a month of the customers decision to
implement the solution. Greystone staff engineers designed robust tooling to handle the heavy parts through the coating process.
By focusing significant resources to running samples, developing and validating prototype production processes and then scaling
up the process for full production, Greystone demonstrated our commitment to the customer to deliver the full solution.
Testing revealed a significant improvement in bearing performance with the licensed coating application. The end customer was
able to resolve future warranty issues through this processing change and minimized risk management issues. Additionally, the
customer is working to apply the Corrotect coating on other mating components to improve performance within other assemblies.
