MetoKote Corporation Announces New Powder Coating Line in Peru, Ill.

Aim is to provide additional product offerings to those customers seeking both electrocoat and powder coat, MetoKote says.

MetoKote Corporation, a prominent custom coating applicator, has announced the addition of a new powder coat system at their Peru, Ill., facility. This new line was installed to provide additional product offerings to those customers seeking both electrocoat and powder coat.
Utilizing a Nordson ColorMax® Quick Change Powder Coating System, the new line is located in a controlled room to ensure ideal temperatures for powder application, storage and to control environmental contaminates. The attached conveyor system is equipped with load bar tracking to provide online work instructions to allow employees to instantly view part integrity and provide quality alert notifications to help insure superior part quality.
Currently coating four colors, with the ability to coat limitless colors, this line is also designed for fast color changes.  Consistent with the part window of their black electrocoating line, this system can accommodate parts up to 36"w x 72"h x 72"l in size and weighing up to five hundred pounds.
"We installed this new powder line because of the demand from our customers," said Donald Whitt, sales account manager. "Powder coating provides one of the most economical and most color-durable quality finishes available on virtually any type of metal for a broad range of industries, including agricultural, industrial and automotive. When combined with electrocoat as a base primer, the customer not only receives a product with a long-lasting decorative finish but also benefits with superior levels of performance when it comes to corrosion and chemical resistance."
MetoKote - Peru has been coating quality products since 1992, when they built and installed their first electrocoat line. In addition to the new powder coat line and their black monorail electrocoat system, they also offer electrocoat in buff yellow.  With one of the largest individual load bar capacities in the industry, this line can handle parts up to 10,000 pounds.
