Capabilities
   Finishing Technology / Process:       
   Your choices are...         
   Dip / Immersion       Coating equipment or systems where the entire part is dipped into a tank filled with the paint or coating media and then excess coating drip off the part falling back into the tank.   
   Centrifugal / Dip-Spin       Coating equipment or systems where the entire part is dipped into a tank filled with the paint or coating media and then excess coating is removed by spinning the part.  Bulk painting of small and unchangeable parts is accomplished by dipping a mesh basket of parts, followed by rapid rotation of the basket to remove excess paint. Parts from the dip-spin coater are dumped onto a conveyor belt for curing. 
   Curtain / Flow Coating       In curtain coaters, flow coaters or cascaders, paint or liquid coating media is poured forming a waterfall or sheet through which parts or stock materials are passed.  
   E-coat (Anodic / Cathodic)       E-coat, electrocoat or electrophoretic coating use the charging of particles to attract paint or coating particles or molecules in a bath to the surface of a submerged part.  A dip coating application method where the paint solids are given an electrical charge, which is then attracted to the part. In a method closely paralleling electroplating, paint is deposited using direct electrical current. The electrochemical reactions that occur cause water-soluble resins to become insolubilized onto parts that are electrodes in the E-coating paint tank. Subsequent resin curing is required. 
   Electrostatic       In electrostatic coating, paint droplets or coating powder particles are charged and then sprayed toward a part with an opposite and attractive electric charge. The spray process may be airless or air assisted. 
   Fluidized Bed       In fluidized bed systems, air is blown up through a porous bed or screen to suspend coating particles thereby forming a fluidized bed.  Hot parts are inserted into the fluidized bed allowing the powder coating particles to stick onto the exposed surfaces.  
   Plating / Electroplating       Equipment used to apply metal plating or finish to a product. 
   Powder Coating       In powder coating systems, protective or decorative coatings are formed by application of powder to a substrate, after which the powder is fused into a continuous film by the application of heat or radiant energy. Powder coatings are finely divided particles of generally containing organic polymer or binder, pigments, fillers, and additives.  In a fluidized bed powder coating process, hot parts are introduced and the powder coating particle stick or fuse onto the part's surface.  In electrostatic powder coating systems, the particles are given an electric charge that causes the particles to be attracted to an oppositely charged part. 
   Spray / Atomization (Wet)       A coating process using wet spray paint or fluid coating media where a spray gun directs a coating or paint aerosol toward the part's surface.  The paint or coating aerosol is formed using a rotary (spinning disc or bell) atomizer, an ultrasonic atomizer or by forcing the media through a nozzle with pressure.   
   Thermal Spray       A process in which coating material is heated and accelerated from a spray torch towards the workpiece. The deposited material forms a coating on the surface.  
   Thin Film (PVD / CVD)       Thin film equipment is vacuum process equipment for the deposition or modification of thin films or surfaces using CVD, PVD, plasma etching, and thermal oxidation or ion implantation.  Thin film equipment is widely applied in the semiconductor or wafer processing, cutting tool coating and optical films. 
   Web / Coil Coating       Web and roll coaters are used to rapidly apply controlled layers of paint, protective films, adhesives and other types of coatings onto the surface of paper, plastic film, coil stock, metal foils and other sheet materials.  The coating is often metered onto a roll and then transferred onto the moving web. Other web coating technologies include extrusion or slot die coaters, spray coaters and curtain coaters.  Narrow web, wire or reel-to-reel coaters are included in this category.  Reel-to-reel or narrow web products include wire, lead frames, connectors, mechanical cable, wire rope, magnet wire, communication cable, wire and decorative wire, strip and fiber roving. 
   Specialty / Other       Other unlisted, specialized, or proprietary coating process or technology.
