High-tech systems considerably increase North American powder coating capacity
VISTA, California, August 13, 2012 – McCain Manufacturing, the outsource manufacturing division of McCain Inc., today announced the dramatic expansion of its North American powder coating operations. Housed at McCain’s 100,000-square-foot, LEED-certified manufacturing facility in Vista, California – the two cutting-edge installations includes an automated conveyor and large-scale batch powder coating system.
The automated, overhead I-Beam conveyor system brings together the latest technological advancements in the industry including a 7-stage pretreatment wash, electrostatic application, and curing process. The high-throughput system also features dual coating capabilities that save time and money by applying multiple coats in half the time. Components too large for the automated system are treated in the batch system, where experienced craftsmen apply each coat by hand using power pulse technology.
McCain’s commercial-grade powder coating is available in an extensive collection of colors and textures for parts of all shapes and sizes including aerospace and defense products, automotive materials, medical equipment, metal enclosures, solar systems, telecommunications, and more. Progressive techniques and superior finishes ensure a resilient, long-lasting finish that extends product life expectancy by shielding the surface from conditions such as chemicals, scratching, weather, harsh use and impact. With rigorous quality and test procedures, McCain’s state-of-the-art systems meet or exceed the standard requirements of nearly all end-use markets.
McCain has always been a pioneer in developing technology,” said John Kingston, applications engineer and powder coating supervisor at McCain Inc. “Our powder coating systems continue the trend by using advanced equipment and machinery to deliver exceptional speed and capacity uncommon to the region. Combining technology with skilled artisans and technicians, we offer consistent, high-quality powder coating to our customers.”
The expanded powder coating operations are the latest value-added services being offered at McCain’s full-scale manufacturing facilities. In addition to superior powder coating, McCain’s North American manufacturing division offers sheet metal fabrication, CNC machining, die casting, plastic injection molding, thermal forming, and turnkey assembly, complete with engineering and design services.
