TD Finishing is one of the country’s leading suppliers of powder coating lines and coating systems. When it comes to an industrial finishing plant, the key is in the detail. With this in mind, we tailor all of our coating systems to your exact requirements. As a result, our clients have bespoke powder coating supplies and systems that are perfect for their business goals.
7-stage Qualicoat Pretreatment and Powder Coating Facility Installation
Entrance Technology is a family run business based out of Warrington. The company was looking to upgrade their manual powder coating facility, choosing to install a brand new powder coating plant. However, they were also needing the pre-treatment plant to be suitable for Qualicoat approval.
Entrance Technology chose TD Finishing to supply its new pre-treatment plant and powder coating facility. Working extensively with Entrance to understand their production and layout requirements, we worked hard designing a bespoke pre-treatment facility. The result being a 7-stage dip pre-treatment facility for Qualicoat processing of aluminium. As well as a power-and-free monorail powder coating facility.
Powder Coating Lines
Products are batch pre-treated in baskets, before being dried in the gas-fired well oven. Following a period of cooling the pre-treated products are placed on stationary flight bars before being transferred on to the powered track. From here the products are driven through the auto-booth for powder coating, before being cured in the 23m-long direct gas-fired tunnel-oven. The system was supplied for coating of items up to 6.5m in length, 1.5 m high and 0.8m wide. It is capable of processing the vast majority of Entrance technologies work including roller shutter doors, gates and anti-ram posts. A box oven is utilised for occasional outsized and small batch components.
The client chose a plastic construction powder-booth with two auto-reciprocators, 3 guns per side, and a manual touch in station. We were also delighted to supply the system with a cyclone, after-filter and powder feed-centre.
Delivering First-class Service
Tony, Director of Entrance Technology was pleased with the service we offered, saying:
“TD Finishing came highly recommended to us by one of our existing suppliers. They attended site at short notice, and it was clear from the beginning they had the knowledge and the experience to supply equipment to our exact requirements. We are now able to powder coat our product at both a much higher rate but also to a significantly higher standard. TD delivered on time and have given us their full support throughout the installation and commissioning. We look forward to continuing working with them in the future.”
TD Finishing is a leading supplier of powder coating facilities in the UK. We have been installing coating systems across a wide variety of industries for decades. Generally, a typical Qualicoat aluminium system has a dip pre-treatment line with 5-7 process tanks, a well oven, and a gantry crane. Alongside this, a powder booth and curing oven with a power-and-free or monorail conveyor.
These types of systems typically run anywhere from 0.5m/min to 2m/min as required. They have variable speed drives for curing a variety of materials. We can also supply the systems with associated ancillary equipment such as pH correction, chemical dosing and paint application equipment. Box ovens and off-line manual booth are also available for processing out-sized parts or small colour batches.
