New in the WMV portfolio: Electroplating systems

Complete solutions with WMV centrifuge technology for maximum energy efficiency

The American company UAS Automation, Inc., which is renowned in the field of electroplating technology, has been part of WMV Apparatebau GmbH since the beginning of 2023. The strategic decision to invest in the US market as a new pillar enables us to expand our product portfolio enormously. And always exactly as our customers’ processes require. This is because WMV’s electroplating solution is another system module in the field of surface treatment made by WMV. And that means: maximum flexibility along the entire process chain and maximum energy efficiency thanks to WMV centrifuge technology. But why UAS? And why USA?

Innovation as a competitive advantage. Takeover as a milestone

On the one hand, we are convinced that the American market remains an essential business area. Secondly, innovation is an important part of UAS’s corporate philosophy. Courage and expertise have contributed to making UAS one of the leading suppliers of electroplating systems today. Thanks to decades of accumulated knowledge in the electroplating sector, UAS stands for the highest quality in all areas of electroplating. The acquisition therefore represents a significant milestone in the history of WMV. We are now in a position to combine our expertise and resources with the in-depth knowledge and experience of UAS and expand our product portfolio to include electroplating systems in line with the requirements of our customers. And this will continue to be customised in terms of system size and degree of automation – and with the proven WMV quality and broad technical expertise.

Detlev Kroes – our electroplating expert for Europe

In order to continuously expand our knowledge and innovation in the electroplating sector, we are pleased to announce that we have been able to recruit Detlev Kroes as a renowned employee in the field of electroplating for WMV. Detlev Kroes is a recognised expert in the German-European electroplating market. Thanks to his high-quality and innovative expertise, we at WMV can also guarantee adequate advice on the European market.

Fewer resources for more sustainability

From now on, our accumulated expertise in the field of automation and the construction of energy-efficient systems will flow into complex electroplating processes. Efficiency, cost minimisation and sustainability are our top priorities. The highlight: the combination of horizontal and centrifuge drum can reduce media carryover by up to 92%. This also has a major impact on the electroplating processes. The improved consumption of water, electricity and chemicals is rapidly reduced: plant operators save time, chemicals, and costs.

Electroplating Systems

The complete surface treatment process chain from a single source

By integrating electroplating systems into our system portfolio, we can offer the entire surface treatment process chain from a single source, from oil removal, washing, rinsing and activation or tempering through to passivation, chromating, coating and drying. And this also means that we can optimise all processes with WMV technology in terms of flexibility, speed, and energy efficiency. From pre-treatment to post-treatment. System development, ongoing operation and maintenance are also easier for customers and system operators. This is because WMV is the sole point of contact.

Extensive service portfolio for smooth processes

Thanks to intelligent plant control and service-orientated cooperation, we have been a reliable partner to our clients for more than 50 years. We offer complete support from our trained employees worldwide right from the start. They are available around the clock. And provide first-class advice at the highest level.
