Nercon Installs New Powder Coat Finishing System
The new, recently installed, Nordson paint line includes a 3 stage parts washer, dry-off oven, curing oven and conveying system. An investment of $800,000.00, the ability to powder coat offers competitive advantages in equipment finishing quality, assembly efficiencies and reducing time to delivery.
In the process, dry powder is applied electro statically and is baked-on to create a hard finish that is tougher than convention paint. It also does not require solvent used in liquid paint. The process includes a 90 second wash stage for exceptional substrate cleaning with a phosphate coating for superior rust protection.
Other advantages include:
Low volatile organic compounds (VOC)
Powder coating produces less hazardous waste than conventional paint processes
Uniform application quality
Scratch resistant finish
Resistant to more chemical than traditional equipment paint
Ready to assemble or ship as soon as it comes off the line
The new powder coat process was showcased and well received at a recent trade show. The line will soon be at full production and all future parts and conveyor components will be powder coated.
