Manufacturing Process

With its strong foundations in R&D and the outstanding technology of its production department, SOLAS values any and all voices of its customers and keeps constantly innovating and improving its products to provide better quality and to expand production capacity.

We have adopted the Advanced New Production System (ANPS) to improve manufacturing efficiency to reduce inventories, and to eliminate personnel and material wastes. SOLAS focuses its production improvement efforts on efficient use of space, increased yield, first-in-first-out processes and automated equipment (such as robotic dipping arms). We are constantly improving processes and striving toward even higher levels of quality.

 SOLAS employs a consistent "one piece flow" production system, completely integrating R&D with Manufacturing to produce flawless products that stand above the competitors’ and exemplify innovation and excellence.

Stainless Steel Propeller Manufacturing Process

Smooth, Durable, High Precision-Overall Performance
All SOLAS propellers are developed by a state of the art process. Through a sequence of theoretical calculations, geometry design, prototype testing, pilot production and field tests, SOLAS propellers are designed to meet customers' various requirements. Modern CAD, CAM and CAE technologies are used to ensure that high precision tools are used for products.

Performance and durability are the characteristics of the SOLAS stainless steel products.

SOLAS Stainless Steel propellers are made by investment casting process. SOLAS focuses its production improvement efforts on efficient use of space, increased yield, first in first out processes and automated equipment (such as robotic dipping arms). We are constantly improving processes and striving even higher.

 

Aluminum Propeller Manufacturing Process

Reliability and Precision
SOLAS uses a state of the art squeeze casting process to make our aluminum propellers stronger and tougher than traditional die cast products.

The SOLAS squeeze cast propeller is almost non-porous, with finer grain size than the die cast propeller.

About SOLAS Coatings
SOLAS aluminum propellers have 4 layers of paint. Using superior coatings and a high-tech painting process ensures excellent anti-corrosion performance. SOLAS aluminum propellers are exposed to over 500 hours of testing in a salt water spray tank. This testing simulates more than 6 months of normal salt water use.
