Hi, Ahmad. My recommendation would be to get a look at a copy of Robert Probert's "Aluminum How-To" and Sheasby & Pinner's "The Surface Treatment and Finishing of Aluminum and its Alloys". Even still, I would not start designing a hard anodizing installation without retaining an experienced Consultant. Good luck.

In addition to the books that Ted mentioned, I like Arthur Brace's "The Technology of Anodizing Aluminum" [link is to info at Amazon about the book]. It is more focused on the plant engineering aspects of putting a line together. You should really have all three in your library (and a consultant).
