FABTECH 2017 is now in the books. This immense exposition was held for four days at McCormick Place in Chicago. This show is North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event, and hosted more than 1,700 exhibiting companies and a total of 44,935 attendees from 120 countries. This year’s theme was a celebration of manufacturing’s industrial evolution. With more than 750,000 sq.-ft. of exhibit space, FABTECH provided attendees with access to the fabrication industry’s leading companies, latest innovations and insight into current and future trends.

When I began my career in the powder coating industry back in the late 1970s, there were about 20 powder coating producers in North America. Most had non-paint producing traditions, companies like Ferro, H.B. Fuller, Armstrong, Polymer, Celanese, Farboil, Dexter and Mobil. Of course, there was a smattering of true paint companies, such as SherwinWilliams, DuPont and Glidden, the place where I started my coatings career odyssey. Soon thereafter Sherwin and DuPont got out of the powder business, leaving Glidden as the only sizable paint maker in the fold at this juncture.

Producing a powder coating is a multi-step process. It can be described as being semi-continuous because it begins as a batch process (weighing and pre-mixing) but evolves into a continuous process (extrusion and milling). In the last Technology Interchange article, we discussed the first steps in manufacturing a powder coating. This consists of weighing, premixing and extrusion. This edition covers what happens to the flakes generated from the extrusion process.

Producing a powder coating is a multi-step process. It can be described as semicontinuous because it begins as a batch process (weighing and premixing) but evolves into a continuous process (extrusion and milling). The exciting part of the manufacturing process is taking the abstract concept of the art of powder formulating and making it real and tangible. All the creativity and technology that has been infused into a formula becomes a reality. This Technology Interchange describes the first part of manufacturing powder coatings, namely weigh-up, premixing wand extrusion.
