Track: VALUE-ADDED PROCESSES - Finishing
ABSTRACT—Trasmetal uses its patented OFB disks to vertically powder coat 12-meter-high aluminum
profiles. The line includes pre-treatment, drying, two parallel powder booths, and curing, permitting vertical
powder coating of longer profiles than ever experienced, weighing up to 180 kilograms each.
Problems/solutions for a vertical line that permits vertical surface treatment of 12-meter-high profiles, and
guidelines for future innovations are presented.
