Laminations are provided by our customers and sent through a coating line to receive the bonding agent. Once the laminations are coated with the bonding agent, they are cured in an industrial oven. The cured laminations are now put in a fixture. This is either provided by the customer or custom-built by Gebe to the client's exact specs. The prepped laminations are then carefully stacked in the fixture, according to the customer's schematics. The fixture is now placed in a hydraulic press to achieve the pressure required for that specific stack. At this point the pressurized stack is placed in the oven for a second time to cure or "fuse" together, to form the completed stack. The fused stack is now visually inspected and removed from the fixture. Upon passing the visual inspection, each stack receives a "stress test" before having any excess bonding material removed. The stack is then measured and weighed, if there are any deficiencies the stack will be corrected to ensure it meets exact customer specifications.
Parts or stacks are provided by the client or produced by Gebe. The part is then cleaned of any excess adhesive or foreign material and inspected for any faults. At this point, the part is prepped with high-temperature tape and mold release to ensure epoxy is only applied to designated areas, per the stacks customer drawing specifications. The part or stack is placed in the oven and baked at a predetermined heat and time specific to the part. After inspection, the part then returns to the oven to cure. If the parts require a thicker coating, steps 4 and 5 will be repeated to achieve desired thickness. Once the parts have cured they are taken out of the oven and pass a visual inspection.
At this point, the tape is removed and the part cleaned of any mold release or tape residue. The parts are then measured to ensure no changes occurred during the process, followed by the epoxy thickness being measured and the part being weighed. If there are any deficiencies the stack will be corrected to ensure it meets customer specifications.
