Introducing: The Rocklinizer micro

The First Battery-Operated Carbide Applicator

Introducing the first battery-operated carbide applicator, the Rocklinizer® micro (patent pending). Built on decades of proven technology, the Rocklinizer® spark deposition process applies extremely hard and wear resistant coatings ranging from 60 to 80 HRC onto metals, tools, and dies to:

- Extend machine life

- Eliminate downtime

- Delay capital expenditures

- Reduce inventory

- Optimize grip

The powerful lithium-ion battery delivers about three hours of usage in one charge and can be rapidly recharged. Alternatively, the 10-lb. unit can also be used while plugged in for continuous use. Electrode material is deposited by adjusting the LED power dial and triggering the rotary applicator to achieve a precisely controlled deposit from .0001” to .003”.

Punching & Stamping with the Rocklinizer micro

Coating the same area does not add material to itself unless a higher power setting is selected. This feature ensures both ease of use and a uniform deposit that adheres to tight tolerances. Unlike welding or metal spraying, no appreciable heat is generated, and the electrode material will not separate or flake off the workpiece. After Rocklinizing, no heat treatment, grinding or other surface treatment is necessary. Just apply your desired deposit and you’re done.

The Rocklinizer® micro solves a vast array of wear and gripping issues including eliminating slug pull back in stamping dies, restoring tolerances in bearings and shafts, extending the life of cutting surfaces, and enhancing gripping surfaces on collets, clamps, robot grippers, and various medical devices, among many others. We also offer more powerful Rocklinizer® models that can achieve heavier deposits up to .010”, levels ideally suited for industrial applications such as eliminating die casting wear or boosting grip on bending dies, among many others.

We’re excited to transform technology first developed by our founder, I.J. Rocklin, to solve the greatest wear and gripping challenges through first-of-its-kind, battery-operated portability. The Rocklinizer® micro is small in size but delivers immense cost savings along with a competitive edge that’s never been more essential than in today’s environment.
