Electronic Cigarette Design and Process Analysis
In recent years, e-cigarettes is more and more popular in the market, but how much do you know about the design and production process of e-cigarettes? Whether it's home appliances, electronic products or mobile phones and e-cigarettes, the production process of their appearance is generally required to go through a variety of processes to form a beautiful appearance. Most leading brands offered the e-cigarettes on the market now have an aluminium body, and then anodized and sandblasted surface treatment. In addition to aluminium, there are other materials used in e-cigarettes such as stainless steel, zinc alloy, plastic, glass and ceramic.
Here are some surface processes that e-cigarette materials generally go through in the process to form a beautiful appearance.
Polishing refers to the use of mechanical, chemical or electrochemical action, so that reduce to the roughness of the products, in order to obtain a bright, shiny surface processing methods. Is the use of polishing tools and abrasive particles or other polishing media on the surface of the work piece for finishing processing.
Sandblasting is the act of propelling very fine particles of an abrasive material at high velocity toward a surface in order to clean or etch it.The use of compressed air as the power to form a high-speed jet beam will be sprayed material. High-speed spraying to the surface of the product to be treated, so that the appearance or shape of the outer surface of the workpiece surface changes, due to the impact of abrasive on the surface of the workpiece and cutting effect, so that the surface of the workpiece to obtain a certain degree of cleanliness and different roughness, therefore improving the fatigue resistance of the workpiece, increasing the adhesion between it and the coating, extending the durability of the coating film, but also conducive to the leveling and decoration of the coating.
3. Laser engraving
Laser engraving is based on the use of CNC technology and laser as the processing medium. The physical denaturation of the processing material by instantaneous melting and vapourisation under laser engraving irradiation enables laser engraving to achieve the purpose of processing. Laser engraving is the use of laser technology to engrave words on top of objects, this technology engraved words without scoring, the surface of the object is still smooth, and the words will not wear.
Spraying is a coating method in which the spray is applied to the surface of the object by means of a spray gun or disc atomiser, dispersed into uniform and fine droplets by means of pressure or centrifugal force. It can be divided into air spraying, airless spraying, electrostatic spraying and various derivatives of the above basic spraying forms, such as high flow low pressure atomised spraying, thermal spraying, automatic spraying, multi-group spraying, etc.
Anodising, the electrochemical oxidation of a metal or alloy. The process by which an oxide film is formed on aluminium and its alloys under the corresponding electrolyte and under specific process conditions, due to the action of an applied current. Anodising usually refers to sulphuric acid anodising if not specifically specified.
6. Metal drawing
Metal drawing is the manufacturing process of repeatedly scraping lines out of aluminium sheets with sandpaper. The process is divided into three main parts: de-esterification, sand grinding and washing. In the wire drawing process, the anodising process is followed by a special film technology, which creates a film layer on the surface of the metal containing the metal component, clearly revealing each fine trace, thus giving the metal a fine hairline shine in a matt finish.
