Nercon Installs New Powder Coat Finishing System
The new, recently installed, Nordson paint line includes a 3 stage parts washer, dry-off oven, curing oven and conveying system. An investment of $800,000.00, the ability to powder coat offers competitive advantages in equipment finishing quality, assembly efficiencies and reducing time to delivery.
In the process, dry powder is applied electro statically and is baked-on to create a hard finish that is tougher than convention paint. It also does not require solvent used in liquid paint. The process includes a 90 second wash stage for exceptional substrate cleaning with a phosphate coating for superior rust protection.
Other advantages include:
Low volatile organic compounds (VOC)
Powder coating produces less hazardous waste than conventional paint processes
Uniform application quality
Scratch resistant finish
Resistant to more chemical than traditional equipment paint
Ready to assemble or ship as soon as it comes off the line
The new powder coat process was showcased and well received at a recent trade show. The line will soon be at full production and all future parts and conveyor components will be powder coated.

12 Live Drum Spiral Conveyors Solve for high volume palleting operations
Two mega consumer goods production facilities purchased 12 Live Drum Spiral Conveyors in the past year in order to increase volume to its palletizing operations. Each facility maximized its six lines by adding Live Drum Spiral Conveyors to handle any of five different sizes of cases from the warehouse to the palletizers. The manufacturing customers considered the rates and capability of handling 30 lb. cases, the low maintenance benefits and the versatility to handle different sizes without change-over procedures in making the equipment decision.
A critical objective for the palletizing operations was to increase OEE (overall equipment effectiveness) and overall line efficiency. At 70 FPM and a rate of 25-35 cases per minute, the Live Drum Spiral Conveyors maintained a steady flow of cases to the palletizers.
