This e-learning course is module #12 in the Anodizing Masterclass.
By enrolling in this specific course only - module #12 - you will get an overview of the equipment you need to have to create an oxide layer on aluminum, and what equipment which is nice to have
The importance of the nice to have will be emphasized to show you how you can benefit from these extra expenses to get a higher quality and consistency of your resultant oxide layer.
What this module will cover:
- How to specify your line
- What equipment is needed
- Why it is so important to invest in more equipment than just the necessary
- What test equipment is nice to have but also needed if you want to show quality and high standard
The need to have and nice to have
So now we are ready to build our line
All the nice to have equipment
The equipment you need to have to certify and qualify you anodizing process
Conductivity of aluminum alloys

My name is Anne Deacon and I have worked in the anodizing industry for more than 25 years. My anodizing journey started when I wrote my Ph.D. thesis as a research scientist at the Technical University of Denmark about "Pulse Anodizing of Extruded and Cast Aluminum Alloys".
After finishing my Ph.D. I worked with anodizing both as an independent consultant and as a supervisor and quality manager in anodizing companies. Thus, I have great experience with different kinds of chemical and electrochemical surface treatments, such as chromating, electroplating, electroless plating - Anodizing – type I, II, and III are my favorites.
What I am most passionate about is the sustainable aspect of aluminum anodizing. I strongly believe anodizing is the most efficient and sustainable solution for anodizing aluminum. This conviction has also led to my decision to create AnodizingSchool where I seek to enhance knowledge about anodizing in the world.
