May 14th, 2024

At Nu-Way Industries, we believe in continuous improvement through technology. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our new automated paint line. This cutting-edge addition enhances our capabilities and directly benefits our customers in several key ways.

Advantages Over the Current Paint Line

Our current paint lines have served us well for years, but many aspects of the processes were manual. The spray booths required a large staff to run, manual color changes could take up to 25 minutes, and large parts often required manual repositioning, requiring additional time.

The new paint line outshines its predecessors in every respect. It features a higher weight capacity and greater line density by utilizing a power free conveyor. The 16 automatic spray guns allow for greater control of the powder application and more consistent results. Color changes are now a breeze, averaging just 6-10 minutes. 

The increased throughput of the new paint line allows us to consolidate from two lines to one, reducing the footprint in our shop. Furthermore, the new line automates the settings  in our process, allowing for consistent quality and a leaner operation for faster throughput. 

Environmental Focus

At Nu-Way Industries, we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact. The new paint line has a substantially lower carbon footprint than its predecessors. In fact, the new line consumes less power, natural gas and water than either of our previous lines.

Our team eliminated the use of harsh chemicals in our existing pre-treatment lines, which required extensive monitoring, testing, neutralizing, and manifesting of waste – all processes that were time-intensive and expensive. Nano technology will continue to be used in the new line. 

However, our current lines still required diligent wastewater management practices and coordination with state and local authorities. Our new paint line takes environmental impact further. It utilizes a thin film process that results in zero discharge, meaning that zero waste product is released from the pretreatment process into the environment. The water used in the process is reclaimed and recycled for future use.

How Does the New Paint Line Benefit Our Customers?

The implementation of our new paint line directly translates into – reduced lead times, and improved efficiency for our customers. With automated spray guns and a superior pretreat system, the powder coating of our parts will continue to be of the highest quality, ensuring long-lasting durability and performance.

By improving our output and consolidating from two lines to one, we’re able to streamline our processes and meet customer demands more effectively. This not only saves time and resources but also optimizes our shop space, making us leaner and more agile in our operations.

Moreover, the reduced energy consumption and waste management costs of our new line are not just environmentally friendly—they also control costs for our customers. With automated controls in the process and a smaller footprint in our shop, we’re able to provide competitive pricing with exceptional delivery and quality.
