Trojan Powder Coating Adds Fux Lamination Machine
The addition reinforces the company’s position as a products finishing company providing lamination in the Southeast.
Trojan Powder Coating has acquired an additional lamination machined for its Sarasota, Florida, facility. The move is said to strengthen the company as the only third-party finishing company in the region to offer lamination services.
The 83-PLM-327 by Fux Machinery is the latest generation in Fux’s range of wrapping machines. The model Trojan acquired features an automatic slot nozzle, an adjustable machine bed and an integrated quality control system with remote access. Using the machine, Trojan can provide authentic, textured finishes in a range of color options that can withstand sun exposure and elements without sacrificing the pigment or lifespan of the laminate.
“In 2016, we introduced wrapping and lamination as a part of our company’s offerings,” says Carl Troiano, founder and president. “It was very well received, particularly because of the benefits laminating brings to Florida’s unique climate and environment. We’re thrilled we can offer a rapid response to our customers’ changing needs. It reflects our commitment to the evolving markets we serve.”
Laminates are said to deflect heat and protect products from harsh elements five times better than the average finish. Because of this, there is a high demand throughout the Southeast U.S. region for the premium laminate and wrapping finishes the 83-PLM-327 can provide. Among the applications Trojan Powder Coating handles are windows and door profiles, trim boards, siding and lightweight facades.
Austria-based Fux Machinery is represented in North America by Marco Patermann from Gapser.
