Improving Quality and Bottom Line for Finishing Operations

This is another episode of Manufacturing A Stronger Standard from FABTECH 2021. Host and President of Lesta USA and Degeest Corp., Derek Degeest, talked with Bill Robinson, President and Kris Bonnegent, Regional Sales Manager, at Eurosider and Coating Delivery Technology, which provides Nitrotherm and Polifluid systems to hundreds of companies around the world including OEM’s Toyota, Fiat, boat manufactures, large kitchen cabinet manufactures and aerospace. They talked about improving quality and bottom line for finishing operations in the painting and coating industry.

CDT is known for its Polifluid and Nitrotherm systems, and they have been doing it for a long time with a wealth and depth of experience, according to DeGeest.

“Polifluid is our powder coating system for when you’re spraying powder,” Robinson explained. “The Nitrotherm technology is used when spraying liquid. Both improve transfer efficiency, improve quality, and reduce costs. It is a phenomenal product.”

At DeGeest, they use both products, and DeGeest noted that the partnership has been a really great experience. By using both the Polifluid and Nitrotherm systems, you can eliminate the variables and control the temperature, which is why “us robot people like it,” DeGeest noted.

These systems have reduced spray waste by as much as 30 points off of single gun usage, according to Robinson. They work for single gun users and larger applications.

“Almost every one of those companies has a guy behind the booth with a stack of paint cans where he touches up the spots, and we’re getting rid of the paint cans,” Robinson said, “…all the way up to facilities where they have 60, 70, or 80 guns running where there’s a bigger installation.”
