A custom coater’s tool box
As custom coaters, we often do not have the added support of a QC department let alone a dedicated team member. In this article, I will identify tools that I value having around our shop, highlight some of their uses, and discuss applicable standards that may provide further instruction to their use.
Here is a list of tools and supplies that every custom coater should have. In all of these things, keep in mind that your suppliers have a specific and intimate understanding about the tools they sell you — be sure to get their help.
