Anyone who’s ever had a gutter machine out of service and lost money on downtime and repairs will tell you: Don’t ignore preventive maintenance.Portable roll forming machine producing metal roofing panel

Tolling: When Coil Coating Experience Counts

Why do some highway signs look old and faded while others pop with color?  Why do the exteriors of some new trucks look great while others look like they’ve been traveling the highway for years? And how come your neighbor’s garage door to the left looks great but the one to the right built around the same time looks pasty and faded?

To get the answer, you may have to go back to that critical point in time when all of these metal products were large coils of aluminum or steel that had to be pre-coated or pre-painted to protect the metal and provide a base for decorations like decals, wraps, embossing and lettering. Coil-coated metal is indispensable in a variety of industries including the manufacture of household products such as lights and white lighting, residential and non- residential building products like garage and entry doors and window frames, sign stock, automation control panels, HVAC, industrial products and more.

Englert Production LineWe know as a company that pre-coats thousands of tons of metal material that there are different levels of quality for just about any pre-coated coil you can buy—whether it’s for a garage door, a tractor trailer body or a stop sign.  The metal gauge or thickness, the coatings chosen and even the paint line system used to apply the coating to the metal vary throughout the coil coating industry.

Demanding quality at this level can dictate how good a garage door looks when it comes time to sell the house , how long a tractor trailer will last after a few years on the road or how faded a highway directional sign will become when it exposed year after year to the elements.  If you’re a garage door manufacturer or you’re making sign materials positioned as premium products for their longevity and durability, be careful how you look for savings on production.

How good the product will look even over a short period of time is often directly related to how much the manufacturer is willing to spend to produce a quality product. If the industrial designer has been asked to create a premium-made garage door and the manufacturer’s purchasing agent knows the drill, the end product is pretty much guaranteed to look better and work better than a cheaper version. Colors will be more vivid, surfaces won’t appear faded or chalky and the aluminum or steel substrate will probably last much longer. Continue reading
