An automated system applies a two-tone powder finish to hand-grenades
A finisher installs a powder cell system that applies powder unconventionally to blow up sales volumes and production capabilities.
Southern Powder Coating, Moultrie, Ga., had established itself as a competent custom coater with 2 decades under its belt. Over the past 2 years, the coater had an opportunity with explosive growth potential. A hand-grenade manufacturer that had previously liquid coated the levers with a two-tone finish wanted to switch to powder but wanted someone else to perform the finishing. The liquid dip process produced drips on the end of the parts, and the liquid finish wasn’t durable enough. Enter Southern Coating with an attractive bid and the wherewithal to translate this finish into powder.
