Masking is essential for many powder coaters, e-coaters, and other metal finishers. However, using standard rolls of tape can lead to wasted time & resources, injuries, and a higher reject rate. Custom die-cut masking tape is a specialized solution that can help streamline your production process and save you money in the long run. But how much does it cost to switch to custom die-cut masking tape?
In this post, we are going to take you through how to easily mask off bolts, studs, and tube ends during coating processes, such as powder coating and electrocoating.
Due to the fear of silicone volatiles, some facilities will not even remotely consider using the material. In the automotive industry specifically, silicone is sometimes not even allowed into the paint production environments. So, what this means is they need alternative solutions. Luckily, we've received these requests many times before so in this post we will take you through the majority of the options you'll typically have.
Repetitive motion injuries. Labor shortages. Manufacturing line bottleneck. These are just a few of the many reasons why it's time to take a closer look into the ergonomics and efficiencies of your masking operations.
