Currently, we undertake offline zinc coating tests (volumetric zinc coating as per IS 6745) wherein we need to cut a test sample after production of approx. 1 MT wire. This is a reactive mode of determining the coating thickness and does not give continuous feedback to the operators. Any necessary corrective action is thus significantly delayed. Hence, we are looking for a portable zinc coating measurement equipment which will help the operator to monitor zinc coating as and when required, without having the need to cut the test samples. This will enable frequent monitoring of the coating thickness, based on which corrective actions can be taken.
The need for a non-destructive test at the customer end is important and can be carried out if such a portable wire coating thickness measuring device is available. In this way, we will be able to reduce material losses resulting from excess zinc coated on the wires. This will also enable better coating consistency provided to the customer.
