The Powder Coating Institute's "Custom Coater Summit" was held March 22-23 at the Treasure Island Resort in Las Vegas, and was a successful event as coaters learned new techniques about their craft and received tips on running their coating business.
The Custom Coater Summit was developed specifically for custom coaters, and provided sessions on business solutions, new product technologies, PCI programs, round table discussions and others.
It was also an excellent networking opportunity for coaters could help improve their business and coating processes.
The Keynotes address was "Filling the Glass: Real World Tactics and Reality-Based Motivation for Increasing Productivity and Job Satisfaction" by Barry Maher from Barry Maher & Associates.

  • Pretreatments: The Next Generation

    Emerging technologies can save energy, ease environmental concerns

  • Understanding Infrared Curing

    Infrared cure is gaining increased attention from coaters as a result of shorter cure cycles and the possibility of smaller floor space requirements when compared to convection oven curing. 

  • Masking for Surface Finishing

    Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
