Turnkey Powder Coating Systems and Its Advantages in Overall Production

December 13, 2019

This is a topic that requires more coverage, with lots of focus placed on in-house powder coating quality control. To keep finish quality high, all while simultaneously becoming part of today's turnkey culture, a modular workflow is an undeniable system asset to have at your fingertips. However, care should be taken, for this one-size-fits-all attitude could negatively impact an otherwise highly adaptable work style. With this in mind, let's take a closer look at turnkey trends.

Turnkey Leanings: Overall Production Benefits

Just to review the issue, turnkey powder coating systems incorporate every stage of the work into one single, modularly designed package. Job feasibility and analysis mechanisms are created first, then the operation spreads to the equipment stations. Batch or single load conveyance equipment is selected to suit the operation. From here, the powder medium is selected and the gun anti-static settings are dialled into the booth gear. The oven temperatures and pre-heating configurations are also implemented. Talking about preparation work, even the cleaning of the workpieces is planned out. And all of this is done before a single workpiece is fed into the powder coating equipment. Beneficially, if even one stage is found lacking, the shortcomings are spotted straight away, not after the job has begun.

Seamless Process Tuning and More

That's a good start. If a workpiece is processed in any other way, there's always the possibility of a defect. That defect ends up compromising an attractive and weatherproof finish, so the whole project is sent back to square one. Turnkey powder coating processing accounts for process foibles. When a modular finishing system works seamlessly, all unpredictable flaw-introducing factors are quickly and permanently suppressed. What's more, complex projects become clockwork smooth. There are no piecemeal process implementations to worry about here, no poorly coordinated workstreams. Accordingly, multiple workstreams can flow simultaneously to create a truly productive, and profitable, powder coating business model. Incidentally, whether as a byproduct of this mode of operating or as a planned upshot, workpiece quality and treatment consistency are the two main system factors that enjoy a dramatic uptick when turnkey programs work properly.

That's the last piece of the puzzle, by the way. If a turnkey program is to work properly, is to be more than a trend, flash-in-the-pan mentalities must remove themselves from the program. Granted, the modular equipment might look as if it can run itself, but it actually takes a great deal of planning to fine-tune the equipment. However, the gear really does work seamlessly after all of the planning and tuning has been run through. Possibly, to grow a mature turnkey program, a powder coating company might want to work through a number of prototypes, just as a soft reboot for their newly tuned, all-in-one, quality enriched workpiece processing approach.
