5 Costly Spray Booth Design Assumptions

      Like any large engineering project, designing a spray paint booth requires certain assumptions to be made. Before ever having your booth designed, it’s important to first estimate the number of parts to be painted, the size of the booth, the number of colors to be used and more.   However, some assumptions about spray booth design are costly. These overlooke...

Key Decisions for Powder Coatings: Batch or Automated, Spray-to-Waste or Reclaim

    As powder coating systems become more popular in the finishing industry, the number of options to choose from has also increased. Manufacturers are left asking: Should I purchase a batch spray booth or an automated one? Is it better to spray-to-waste or reclaim powder? These are critical questions and their answers vary depending on the manufacturer. Take a ...

Employee Spray Booth Safety

  Spray paint booths are carefully designed to minimize health, safety and environmental risks. However, paint is still a hazardous substance. As a solvent, it is subject to specific volatile organic compound (VOC) regulations. It’s important to note that the strict environmental and fire control requirements that apply to spray paint booth design also apply during operation. ...

What You Should Know About Powder Coatings

  Powder coatings have steadily gained popularity as an alternative to liquid coatings due to the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) associated with liquid coatings. Powder coatings are durable, help simplify environmental compliance and allow a high quality finish. Which is why in 2003 – at the turn of this century – roughly 15% of the industrial finishing market preferred ...

Essential Design Elements of a Spray Booth #5: Safety Regulations

  Installing a spray paint booth on a factory floor requires compliance with regulatory and design requirements. Spray booth design takes into account safety and environmental factors. Due to the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in paint, additional federal and state regulations apply to the spray paint booth’s design. To keep personnel safe and environmental damage minimized, ...

Conveyor vs. Batch Processing

  The way a part travels through an assembly line, or any material handling system, has a large impact on the efficiency of the whole system. Manufacturing line designs are intended to promote quick and efficient delivery of quality-controlled parts. Two designs are commonly used in the manufacturing and assembly of parts, especially in paint finishing operations: conveyor and batch ...

Essential Design Elements of a Spray Booth #4: Location

  Planning is essential in all stages of a spray booth’s development. When designing a spray booth, consider the type of booth that will be installed and the best location for it. Your building requirement—and the use and maintenance of the booth—must be taken into consideration when deciding the booth’s location. The key is efficiency of operation and effectiveness...

Evaluating Base Coat-Clear Coat Paint Application for Aircraft Production

  Base coat-clear coat technology has emerged as an excellent painting solution in the automotive field, but can it be applied to aerospace manufacturing as well? In this type of paint application, a single colored base coat is used in place of the typical two to three color coats. Once dry, the base coat is covered by a glossy clear coat. Base coat-clear coat technology has been adopted...

Aerospace Finishing Applications: Spraying vs Dipping vs Brushing

    Applying paint to aircraft components not only adds a decorative touch to the part, but also a functional anti-corrosion coating. Protecting aluminum and other aircraft materials from the elements requires that almost every part be coated with a protective finish. However, each part has different finishing requirements. Components in the wing, which are exposed to the eleme...

Essential Design Elements of a Spray Booth #3: Manufacturer's Production Rate

      Spray paint booths are designed to align with the manufacturer's production rate—if a manufacturer creates 10 components per hour, the spray paint booth should be designed to accommodate the finishing of components at the same rate or faster. Otherwise, the booth causes a hold-up in the production line. Instead of creating hold-ups, spray paint booth des...
