Back by popular demand, John Halladay (aka Johnny Impreg) shows our latest vacuum impregnation system, the Advanced Powertrain Impregnation system (APi). The APi allows powertrain manufacturers to have the benefits of vacuum impregnation in a simple, easy to use machine.
You will see in this video:

Hey everybody, Johnny Impreg here again with another episode of "Casting Call with Johnny Impreg". This episode my guest star is Godfrey & Wing's APi, which stand for Advanced Powertrain Impregnation. Now what that is, if you remember back in the day the blocks use to be a lot bigger than the transmission cases. Times have changed and we have kept up with that, and we have developed the Advanced Powertrain Impregnation to seal transmission cases.
Now picture this. You have a new program, and it is going to have a soft launch, so you are going to have pretty minimal quantities at the beginning so you don't want to spend the money on a fully automated system. This fits the bill perfectly. It will do 15 jobs per hour, and only takes up about 140 square feet. So you can tuck it into a corner right in with your leak tester, or anywhere in the plant as you are ramping up production.
Eventually with this program, it will move to another facility for another soft launch on another program, and it will be replaced with a fully automated CAPi system that will be doing something like 40 jobs per hour. But if you don't need that in the beginning, and need a smaller compact system, then the APi is for you.
So I hope this is helpful. If you have any questions, then hit me up on What's App, leave questions/comments below, or you can find me on LinkedIn. As always, bye for now.
