Through an electronic-spark deposition process, the Rocklinizer Model 950 from Rocklin Manufacturing deposits materials including Titanium Carbide, Tungsten Carbide, and Rockhard electrodes in thicknesses from 0.0001" to 0.010" and higher onto the base material. These applications all controllable to within 0.0001" by digital machine setting for precision.

The lower deposits are ideal for preventing slug pull in punching and stamping operations and extending the life of cutting edges and tooling. Medium deposits are best for restoring tolerances on bearings and shafts, as well as die casters seeking to prevent heat checking, soldering, and seizing of cores. When combined with the Rockhard electrode, the higher settings produce a rough surface well suited for gripping applications, such as tube bending, collets, clamps, feed fingers, as well as forklifts and non-slip flooring. 

As the electrode is deposited over the same area via the rotary applicator, the Rocklinizer fills in gaps without adding more materials to existing deposits. Only by changing the machine setting or electrode type is additional wear-resistant material added. This results in a uniform coating.

Unlike welding, no appreciable heat is generated, and the electrode material will not separate or flake off the workpiece.  Once the process is complete, no heat treating, grinding or other surface treatment is necessary. 

The Model 950 offers a much faster application speed than previous models, making it ideal for coating larger parts and dies. A 5-in.2 coating takes less than one minute via high-speed settings, while the process can be slowed for more delicate operations. Rocklin also offers an automation option for coating large areas, in addition to the handheld rotary applicator.
