Solving for inefficiencies

case study: Manufacturing | Utilities

Originally hired to upgrade the paint for this OEM client, we ended up overhauling their coating system for better performance and productivity. What they needed was a system that provided faster curing with more process efficiency and was relatable to the durability requirements of the ISO 12944 global coating standard.


What we did:

Provided sub-contractor suppliers with the proper training on the application of a new primer, which was part of our improved coating system.

Why:

This priming solution increased efficiency because metal components shipped to the OEM could withstand welding without damage, allowing for less preparation before painting.

The faster-drying coating system meant less booth heating and related overhead was needed for the curing of the paint, resulting in shorter painting times and increased production.

What we did:

Assisted in moving the OEM to plural component spray equipment system to provide consistent, accurate computerized paint mixing and reduced mixed-product waste.

Why:

The new paint systems adhere to the international ISO 12944 standard on corrosion protection. This gives the OEM sales force a huge advantage in conveying the durability expectations of the paint systems they provide on their products to their customers.

Which resulted in:

Better paint quality, an improved process, increased production, cost-efficiency, and more business with the ability to handle highly corrosive environments.
