Working with medical and manufacturing clients for bulk blasting and powder coating means small parts — lots of them.
What is our approach to effectively complete a large industrial job?
Our shop manager, John, manages intake for the wide variety of industrial work through our doors. With over 15 years experience in the abrasive blasting environment, John knows the critical first step is a review of the customer specifications and requirements accompanying the purchase order. He will assess what blast media to use to ensure the outcome is exactly what the customer wants and expects.
As part of the quality control process John and his team shop count and inspect individual parts for conformity. The team reviews media selection, blast parameters and masking or protection requirements.
- Burning and Blasting
Metal components previously coated with hard-to-remove powder or heavy paint are first processed in our burn-off oven. High temperatures turn coating to ash and makes for efficient, more cost effective removal processing. Smaller parts are then sent to the cabinet blasting area whereas larger parts go to the big blast booths where blasting technicians execute the order plan.Our team is trained to understand blasting variables like angle, pressure, duration and distance for the wide range of material substrates they encounter to insure the best possible outcome without damage to the component part.
Once the blast process is complete component parts are carefully inspected and counted once again to confirm in equals out.
Do the items need powder coating or ceramic coating?
The parts are then sent to our in-house coatings shop. Color choice is generally defined but we can also help choose an appropriate finish for the project. Some color choices or priming requirements require more than one oven cure cycle. Inspection and final count are made before packaging.
- Packaging, Storage and Delivery
After all blast and finish work are completed we ensure processed parts are protected with appropriate wrapping materials. If finish coating is not part of the process, raw material is stored in a climate- and temperature-controlled environment until pick up.
Should you require pick-up or delivery, our transportation office staff and team member will organize timely delivery.
You can expect a follow-up call from Roger or John or Sarah to ensure your bulk blasting and coating job was completed to your satisfaction.
