LILIT is a product of Italian technology company TAU Industrial Robotics. It provides a reliable and accurate test methodology of functional polymers, such as those used as synthetic resins in coatings.
Modern composite technologies including self-bonding processes for the production of electric motors for e-mobility are particularly sensitive. These require superlative quality control in order to pass the high demands on reliability and cost efficiency.
Before the development of LILIT, polymerization processes could not be monitored and documented adequately. A non-contact, non-destructive in-line test method for coil coating – as standard in the electrical steel coating process – was not technically feasible.
“We can now do away with time-consuming quality checks at the beginning and at the end of the coated coil process," said Christoph Lomoschitz, global product manager for Axalta’s Energy Solutions business. "These didn’t bring much information about the degree of polymerization because of local fluctuations in drying conditions across the entire coated coil. So by bringing TAU’s LILIT technology to our customers, we are making their quality control much better and more efficient, as well as improving process accuracy and overall electrical steel quality.”
Axalta is exhibiting the full range of its Energy Solutions products at the Coil Winding Expo (CWIEME) in Berlin, Germany, from May 21-13, 2019 on stand A19, Hall 3.2. Visitors will have the opportunity to see a demonstration of the new LILIT technology.
