Part Design and Racking Efficiency
We will discuss how to utilize racking and hanging solutions to maximize line space and increase part density, how to become more efficient using off-line loading, and how to re-think hook designs for improved grounding and less parts lost in the tank.
Inefficient racking often leads to wasted space in an E-coat system, costing both valuable time and money. In any E-coat system, maximizing density and utilizing all the available space through rack design can increase output and lower overhead costs.
To increase the efficiency and effectiveness of any E-coat system, the right racking solution is essential. Efficient racking solutions will maximize the use of available space, giving you a more cost-effective solution. The right racking solution will provide high density, longevity, ease of use, and, when required, versatility for different parts.
The return on investment for racking and hook solutions is often immediate due to the benefits listed above. Through increased daily output, less labor time, adjustability, and a decrease in overhead costs, there will be a higher ‘profit per part’; quickly covering the expense of the racks.
