BELDING, Michigan — August 9, 2011 — Quality Manufacturing of Des Moines, Iowa, has awarded Belco Industries Inc. a contract to provide a new paint system in one of their Urbandale, Iowa manufacturing plants.
Quality Manufacturing is a custom fabricator of most anything made of metal.
The new paint system is primarily designed to handle long heavy parts that serve the agricultural equipment suppliers that rely on Quality Manufacturing on a daily basis.
The system is complete with a new Pretreatment system, Moisture Drying Oven, Two (2) large downdraft Paint Booths, Three (3) Air Make-up systems, Paint Bake Oven, Cooling Tunnel and a complete enclosure from the start of the pretreatment cycle to the exit of the Bake Oven. A PLC control system allows for fully automatic start up and shutdown and ongoing diagnostics for any potential shutdowns. The enclosure assures a minimum amount of airborne contamination on the parts during the painting process for maximum paint quality.
Working with the power & free conveyor manufacturer parts can be loaded and unloaded on the system while standing still and then released into the painting process under a controlled environment.
Installation of the system commenced in July with expected full operation in early October.
