40% Reduction in Footprint with IntelliFinishing

A project was recently awarded to IntelliFinishing and the customer stated they were able to reduce their floor space requirements by 40% with the use of an IntelliFinishing system. 

A shuttle system will be moved to transfer long and large parts from one side of the line to the other side. Other features of IntelliFinishing also contributed to the reduction in floor space:

  • System stops parts in oven resulting in a shorter oven
  • Transfer parts with shuttle (Watch video )

IntelliFinishing paint lines may not be a good fit for you. However, if your current parts are long or large, your processes for finishing have changed, or you would like to ensure consistent quality, then contact usto schedule a discussion.

TRO_COVERJeremy Pierce released another book, The Reverence of One, which is book three of the Shadow Series.

Revere: To regard with awe, deference, and devotion.
Reverence: An act of showing profound awe, respect...and often love.

"Having forgone her life as a Reaper, Lauren returns to her home with Test after saving him from certain death. Fighting her own inner demons, she knows that the battle has just begun and attempts to help the young Shadow prepare for their inevitable encounter with Isaac, the oldest and most powerful of the Reapers. As they struggle to understand and accept one another, Isaac plots to lure them to their deaths; placing those from Test's past in danger once again. Within each of them, a choice must be made--continue to hide, or risk their lives for that of another."
