Today's Process for Manufacturing Painted Parts 

Painting parts is a labor intensive process with multiple variables that can affect the appearance of the end product.

Due to various steps and procedures in place, this becomes a costly process. An overview is listed below:

    • Pre-treat the part
    • Apply layers of paint
    • Apply clear coat
    • Oven cure
    • Inspection
    • Pad print (optional)
    • Packaging

One of the main issues with painted parts is the orange peel effect which can be a challenge during the development cycle. most often this is due to premature evaporation of the thinner, incorrect spray gun, improper shop setting, and excessive paint.
