Finishing a surface adds value to products, enhancing both aesthetic appearance and component performance. But perhaps the most vital role of a finish is protection. The IEEE estimates that corrosion or structural breakage costs over $100 billion annually in product loss. A great finish provides an effective shield that combats the effects of deterioration-causing elements and damage.

The old saying is true: You don’t know what you don’t know. For example, when purchasing a powder coating finishing system, if you don’t have all the facts it’s difficult to know what will work best for your unique business. That’s why IntelliFinishing, a complete finishing system provider offering ultimate flexibility, encourages its customers and those seeking automated finishing system to educate themselves on “what they don’t know.” This ensures you will make the best choice based on your business’ specific needs. In addition, joining organizations such as the Chemical Coaters Association International (CCAI) and Powder Coating Institute (PCI) provides the opportunity to learn about current and future finishing technology options, investigate equipment and service providers, and connect with peers to make sure you choose the best system for your operation. IntelliFinishing is a proud member of both of these great organizations. Let’s take a look. Continue reading When It Comes to Finishing Systems, Being “In the Know” Matters

Choosing an automated finishing system that best suits a facility’s specific painting needs can be challenging. However, IntelliFinishing has created a logic-based flowchart that uses easy-to-answer questions to help determine whether a simple monorail system, a power & free system (P&F), or a friction tube conveyor system (such as is offered by IntelliFinishing) aligns with an operation’s respective part types and paint processes.

When Simple Questions Provide Quick Decision-Making

With simple questions such as “Do you need to powder-coat parts, liquid paint parts, or both?”, and “Will your finished parts be relatively inexpensive, or do you want to spend as little as possible on a system?”, stakeholders can use IntelliFinishing’s flowchart as a decision-making tool that rapidly assesses their actual requirements to ascertain which type of finishing system pairs to their business’ needs.

IntelliFinishing Leaves Traditional Finishing in the Dust

with 2 Comments on IntelliFinishing Leaves Traditional Finishing in the Dust

Have you discovered that most traditional paint finishing systems aren’t meeting the unique needs of your company? IntelliFinishing has flexible solutions that are anything but conventional, and we offer features that the traditional systems can’t compete with.

Unchained Technology

Unlike the chain-driven components of power & free and monorail finishing systems, our spinning tube, friction-driven conveyor technology allows parts to move both forward and backward within the system––maximizing efficiency and minimizing floor space. This feature eliminates falling debris from a dirty chain, and thus avoids contamination of parts. The control system allows you to input unique recipes for each part family and reduce chemical waste and energy usage by turning off the modules and conveyor when they are not in use. Not to mention, complete system setup results in up to a 30% smaller footprint. Continue reading IntelliFinishing Leaves Traditional Finishing in the Dust
