By Steven Soderberg, Lorin Industries, Inc.

Lorin Industries, a world class continuous coil anodizing company with 80 years of anodizing expertise, looks forward to launching its batch anodizing line at the latter part of 2023. This capability, combined with the long history of anodized coil processing, will allow Lorin to satisfy the needs of its current coil to coil customers with batch anodized parts, it will also open up its customer base to new customers requiring batch anodizing specifically. The products produced with Lorin’s batch anodizing process will offer the same high quality finish Lorin is known for in their coil anodized products, which are utilized globally. 

By anodizing you are able to allow aluminum products and parts the ability to withstand the elements and provide wear protection on a long-term basis, thus offering superior quality with a durable, corrosion-resistant finish. Lorin’s anodizing process provides a variety of colors and finishes, adding the perfect touch to anything from an electric guitar to a gun stock. 

Batch anodizing, also called ‘piece-part’ anodizing, is one of the two types of anodizing process types, alongside continuous coil anodizing. Both processes are fundamentally similar, in that each is an electrochemical process that builds an anodic layer that becomes a part of the substrate on a molecular level. The primary difference is that batch anodizing involves racking parts, or sheets, that are dipped into a series of tanks. The advantages of batch anodizing include the ability to do small parts and smaller runs as well as thicker films and a plethora of colors. Products that would benefit from batch anodizing would include automotive parts, sporting goods equipment, gun stocks, architectural trim, just to name a few.

The premier quality of Lorin’s batch anodizing products arises out of the sophistication of its process, which combines the latest technological advancements with top quality materials. Lorin’s batch anodizing process utilizes tank sizes that allow for maximum flexibility in the process and the ability to efficiently turn around large as well as minimum order sizes.  Lorin will offer type II, Type III(hard-coat) and coloring processes in their Batch line product offering. 

Take advantage of Lorin’s technical expertise, customer focus and committed team for your batch anodize needs. Companies looking to create large or small runs of products with thick films and anodized edges will find an ideal solution in Lorin’s sophisticated batch anodizing process. Whether the industry be automotive, aerospace, military, toys, medical devices, or consumer goods, Lorin’s batch anodizing process fits the needs of specific products and desired performance requirements.
