Companies use application equipment manufacturers' test centers to tweak as well as to perfect new techniques
This article is about test centers available at manufacturers of powder coating application equipment. We sent letters to companies asking them to complete a questionnaire providing basic information about their test centers. From our list, we received submissions from seven companies.
From there we followed up with telephone calls, requesting anecdotes related to test center activities. This article includes specifications from each of the participating companies. It also encompasses stories shared by personnel from some of the companies. The intent of the article is to inform readers not only about the nuts and bolts of test centers, but also to give them more specific examples of the activities they might find taking place in a test center.
