McCain Manufacturing, the outsource manufacturing division of McCain Inc., announced the 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 installations include 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 seven-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 the company said. 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.
