Simplification of enameling processes and/or equipment may result in :
- Improved surface quality
- Reduced enameling cost
- Shorter process time
- Faster process feedback
- Reduction of factory space
- Saving energy
Please find below some practical examples.
I – Conversion of application method
Traditional wet enameling comprises of at least 3 process steps; Enamel preparation, enamel application and drying.
Switching to powder enamel would eliminate enamel preparation and drying, which equals to 66% of the process stages with wet enameling.
Above shown conversion of application method has many benefits, provided your product is suitable for this technology.
II – Elimination of in-house milling
Traditional wet milling is a time-consuming & tricky process, where it is easy to make a little mistake with significant consequences.
Switching to ready-to-mix or ready-to-use enamels will reduce the chance of such error and reduce also the total time for enamel preparation considerably.
