The In-line galvanizing (ILG) process, also known as Zinc-Tech™ process, combines innovation that helps reduce costs while enhancing end-use utility and performance with the most eco-friendly features available. It caters to all industries such as users of Hot-dip galvanizing processes by substantially reducing the process time and process cost and making it the safest process available in the industry today. ILG has been very popular among the manufacturers for more than 40 years and it has evolved to be more efficient than ever before.

The concept of the Zinc-Tech™ process is simple and you can install the Zinc-Tech™ equipment for galvanizing directly into your  pre-existing tube production line. Depending on your configuration, these components are located primarily between the tube forming mill and sizing -or calibrating mill bases.

The result is a single linear production process where slit coils are loaded onto the tube mill entry system and galvanized finished products, cut to specified length, exit the packaging station ready for shipment.

One process integrating both tube making and galvanizing into one production line. The benefits of this are countless and proven. If you want to learn more about the process and its benefits, please see our more technical explanation on how ILG technology works or contact us directly!
