Automated Fluoropolymer Coating Process

We invest in technology at Precision Coating (Precision Coating) because it allows us to put the science into the art of fluoropolymer coating.

Our automation systems deliver coating at precise volumes, deposited to exact tolerances, reaching geometries that could never be done by hand. Precision Coating’s skilled coating technicians and engineers have validated our fluoropolymer coating processes, so our automation delivers precise deposition predictably and reproducibly.

Why Explore Critical Process Input Variables? Because Consistent Quality Matters

 With years of manual batch coating experience, every one of our sprayers has his own process when coating materials. They all rely on their intuitive knowledge of the critical process variables to ensure a coating that meets customers’ specifications. Our quality engineers have run multiple process characterizations to determine the critical process input variable (CPIV) of our coating application process. The initial launch of our automated process was analyzed, studied, and ultimately characterized using design of experiments (DOEs) that identified the CPIVs. Having a validated process in place that establishes which inputs are critical to specific outcomes is integral to our ability to deliver superior quality products consistently, whether batch-coated, or with automation. Take a look at our clean, state-of-the-art fluoropolymer coating facilities in this video.

What This Means for You

You may not be aware of this, but not all coating suppliers validate their processes. In fact, our CPIVs and process validations are unique in the fluoropolymer coating industry for medical devices. We voluntarily meet the stringent regulations that our end-customers in the medical device industry require. Validating our automated fluoropolymer coating process enables Precision Coating to deliver more than simply coated medical device products and engineered coating for industrial products.

What Our Validated Automation Coating Process Delivers to You:

  • Increased volume capacity
  • Coating consistency; tight or varying tolerances
  • Repeatability
  • Quality assurance
  • Ability to accommodate unique specifications
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Support of lean practice procedures on many levels—internally and passed on to customers

Accommodating Your Production Needs 

Precision Coating recently moved operations to its Hudson, MA facility and opened a new location in Costa Rica. Both facilities have automated processes and allow us to meet the production needs of medical device manufacturers at either locale and within pressing time and cost requirements.
