Don’t Be Limited by Line Speed

Our friends at JR Custom Metal Products, Inc. of Wichita, KS are featured in Powder Coated Tough magazine this month with our “flexible” alternative to power and free finishing system.

Through extensive research that spanned over five years, the Martinez family learned everything they could about powder coating finishing lines before sealing the deal on an IntelliFinishing Complete Paint System with an in-line shot blast utilizing IntelliFinishing’s smart technology.

Traditional paint systems are limited by line speed. IntelliFinishing load bars are based on part specific recipes with variable line speeds possible at any point in the system. Learn more about IntelliFinishing’s unique line speed here.

Wow! Is the summer moving quickly? Here it is the middle of June and we are finalizing details of our annual educational event. If you haven’t signed up yet, don’t worry, there’s still time.

We have some great guest speakers lined up to educate us all this year at the Midwest Coating Seminar from Akzo Nobel, JR Custom Metal Products and WSU/WATC/NIAR.

We are planning an all day event (with lunch provided on campus) including tours in the morning (for those interested in learning about an automated powder coating system; contact us for details).

The seminar will begin at 10:30 am on September 14th at WATC (Wichita Area Technical College) Main Campus located at 4004 N. Webb Road, Wichita, KS in the Lecture Hall of 300 Building/S Wing.

As always, this is a free educational event for custom metal coaters, metal manufacturers, or anyone interested in learning about current coating technology, processing equipment or chemical pre-treatment options, with lots of easy conversation in a relaxed environment!

There are multiple inexpensive hotel options close to the technical college (on the northeast side of Wichita, Kansas) for our out-of-town attendees. We hope you’ll sign up to attend and join us for some interesting discussions, free food and drinks.

An expert panel will be available at the end of the seminar to answer all of your paint production questions!

Sign up to reserve your seat today at Intellifinishing – a Complete Paint Systems provider and promoter of educational experiences through networking events.

Have you researched the latest advances in pre-treatment, racking strategies and powder formulations? These advances do more than just increase the quality of the parts you deliver to your customers.

IntelliFinishing complete paint systems for manufacturers offers Lean automated finishing systems that increase your throughput by minimizing line gaps therefore decreasing waiting and transportation waste.

Our distinctive friction-driven (or as we call it, chainless) powder coating or liquid paint conveyor sytem is designed specifically for your manufacturing facility (with your provided specifications) to improve flow with dual lane ovens that optomize cure times with recipes to provide your customers with parts that are cured accurately and consistently every time.

Because it’s not a monument system, our automated paint systems allow for adjustment or expansion to your paint line as new products and processes are introduced!

Did you know that we have tours available? Centrally located in the United States, you can tour a powder coating system that includes a shot-blast spur, or a liquid coating facility to get a visual of what advanced technology can bring to your manufacturing facility. Or you can simply contact us to discuss your automated paint system needs.
