Industrial powder coating is still a complex process. The quality of the result is dependent on a handful of critical factors.
These include professional-level equipment, talented operators, experience with a wide variety of substrates, and the process.
A well-managed process helps to deliver the best results, including quick turnaround, consistency of result, and affordability.
At Great Dane Powder Coating, we have two overhead conveyor lines able to move parts weighing up to 300 lbs. Parts are loaded on the conveyor line and pass through a washer that cleans, chemically pre-treats, and rinses.
A dry-off oven prepares the parts for the powder booth, where automatic or manual powder application occurs.
Parts next pass through the cure oven. Finally, they are unloaded from the conveyor and inspected, then packed for pickup or shipment.
Large part capacity on the conveyor is 42” W X 84” H X 96” L.
The batch process is similar but handles orders in quantity, taking specific batches through to completion all together.
Here custom pre-treatment is the rule, depending on the substrate. The batch dry-off oven is next, followed by batch powder application and oven curing. Finished batches are inspected, then packed for pickup or shipment
The batch process has no weight limit for parts.
Large part capacity in batch powder coating is 5’ W X 7’H X 21’L.
Which process is right for your powder coating project? It’s not just about size or weight, though they can be determinants. It’s about understanding the end use of your product, your turnaround timing needs, the type and amount of pre-treatment necessary for the substrate of the part.
Most importantly, at each step of the way experienced team members must assure appropriate equipment settings, voltage, and oven temperatures. These vary by the powder, part mix, and judgment of the operator. The end result is part science and part art.
