On large jobs or jobs with multiple equipment installs, it is essential to invest in finishing equipment from a manufacturer with project management capabilities. Businesses with dedicated project managers can invest more time in project planning; conduct more frequent project reviews to assess risks, milestones and value; and measure project outcomes more frequently.
A variety of personal protective equipment (PPE) is needed to keep painters safe on the job and help prevent health problems. Knowing how to mitigate the hazards of paint booths and which type of PPE is appropriate for tasks are the keys to running a safe finishing operation.
For industrial manufacturers with conveyor systems in their paint operation, an effective preventative maintenance plan can often be the difference between running at peak efficiency and suffering through costly downtime. Routine preventative maintenance and proper cleaning help ensure your conveyor system is operating efficiently, saving you time and money.
GFS Poly is a new, premium exhaust filter solution for high-volume shops. With an exceptional holding capacity and efficiency rating, GFS Poly provides long-lasting performance, reduced costs and increased paint shop productivity.
Working with UW-Platteville students, GFS developed prototypes of paint booth doors, featuring switches that will make for improved door sensing and positioning. This project put our core values of Partnership and Continuous Improvement in action, while allowing us to collaborate with students to generate fresh ideas to improve our product line.
One of the most efficient and cost-effective ways for manufacturers to clean parts is by using industrial pretreatment washers. They are essential to ensuring powder or paint adheres properly to parts. They also lay the groundwork for consistent, quality finishes, and prevent corrosion from forming on parts.
Having the proper dust collection equipment can help protect stone fabrication workers who may be inhaling dangerous amounts of silica dust while cutting, grinding and sanding pieces of “engineered stone” to make kitchen and bathroom countertops. Dust Collection Modules provide a safe, effective way for manufacturers to contain dust produced from sanding, grinding and blasting applications.
Headquartered in Crete, Illinois, Holland LP recently expanded its footprint adding a new 185,000-square-foot manufacturing facility for rail welding equipment, rail and CWR handling and processing equipment, track testing services equipment, and railroad Maintenance-of-Way equipment. Included in their manufacturing facility is a GFS Large Equipment Paint Booth, Cleaning/Prep Room and Industrial Paint Mix Room.
Integrating painting robots into your finishing operation can free up floor space, increase productivity and improve finish quality. A painting robot can be cheaper, more accurate and more reliable than a manual painter, with the ability to essentially work around the clock.
