Coating manufacturers supply a wide variety of industrial coatings (paints, powder coatings, lacquers, PTFE, etc.) to end-users, who apply coatings in the manufacturing of their own specific products.
Coating suppliers need a means of performing temperature profiling to ensure that the coating they supply to their customers (the applicators), is cured correctly to an accurate specification. Coating suppliers require evidence (at the customer site) that the customer's process "oven" is working correctly, to ensure coating quality and optimal process efficiency, as part of their value added service. Services could include: R&D of new chemistries, oven commissioning and optimization, fault finding studies and oven service & maintenance programs.
- Optimize new customer oven processes to improve productivity and efficiency
- Identify problems, such as oven cold spots quickly and efficiently to minimize downtime
- Process validation to obtain accredited applicator status or meet other legislative certification requirements
- Demonstrate accurate coating cure to guarantee product quality and eliminate risk of either rejects or rework costs
