Is your metal manufacturer meeting your quality expectations? If not, you’re probably (and understandably) frustrated. Especially during metal finishing processes, poor quality is not hard to identify, so you may be wondering why your supplier is shipping powder- or liquid-coated parts that don’t meet your specifications.
OEMs in many different industries rely on metal coating to bring lasting value to their products. However, that value is lost when your metal finishing supplier fails to produce the quality parts you need.
At Miller Welding & Machine Co., we have a mission to prevent any defective fabrications from reaching your facility. Promoting a culture of improvement, we meticulously inspect every coated part. We know defective parts halt your production line, ultimately hurting your business.
Our services also include audits that identify cost-savings opportunities. Working with a single, budget-focused supplier is a much more effective way to meet your metal finishing demands. Sourcing your metal coating processes with us enables you to:
We use both manual and automated coating production lines. Without adding costs or complicated logistics, we offer the following services:
Metal powder coating uses an electrostatic charge to apply a dry powder to a finished metal fabrication. This helps prevent your part from corroding and provides stronger protection than most liquid paints.
We’re able to use any color and adhere to any mil thickness when applying a powder coat to your metal part. Our automated powder coat line includes a blast room, five-stage wash, powder room, dry-off oven and curing oven. For virtually any size or weight requirements, our coating equipment is ready to handle the job.
Powder coating uses a heat-intense process called “curing” that not all metal fabrications can withstand without warping. For parts like these, metal liquid coating is the best solution. Liquid coating is also preferred when a very thin coat is required.
Sometimes known as wet coating, metal liquid coating protects your fabrication against the elements, scratches and other types of wear. Prior to the coating process, parts are blasted and washed as required by the coating manufacturer.
Our manual blast, primer and finishing booths measure 10’ 3” wide x 13’ 10” high x 80’ long. This makes it easy for us to handle demanding size requirements for single parts or for those within a larger assembly.
A single facility houses all of our metal powder coating and liquid coating equipment. We can provide powder coating services for some components of your product line while others receive a liquid coat, increasing efficiency and reducing costs. Leading up to the coating process, our wide selection of equipment also allows us to fabricate, weld and machine high-quality parts based on your needs.
