Join the CCAI Northern Ohio Chapter for a presentation on Lean Improvements in Powder Coatings.
The goal of Lean manufacturing improvements in powder coating operations is to reduce costs and speed operations. This is easier said than done. Driving the principals of Lean Manufacturing into your powder coating operation has challenges due to the restriction from batch operations or color changes in flow-through. This talk to designed to discuss techniques to reduce waste in your operation through downtime management, line staging, equipment design, material handling, and other processing techniques. You will leave with ideas of how to reduce your Time on the Line, operating costs and WIP.

Trimac manufactures ovens, washers and systems and is the only company in North America who manufactures the entire range of process heating – convection, gas catalytic under the Gas-Cat brand, and electric infrared under the Protherm brand for both flow through and batch operations.
