What is Dip Spin?
Dip spin is a process whereby product is placed in a mesh basket, submerged in coating solution and spun to remove excess coating. The temperature and viscosity of the coating, immersion time, spin direction and velocities and the cure method are among the variables that allow users to customize a process recipe and achieve precise, highly repeatable results.
Also notable is dip spin’s ability to minimize the cost of both coating material and waste disposal. This is due to the 98% or greater on average transfer efficiency.
Why Use Dip-Spin?
The advantage to Dip Spin is the ability to coating a large quantities of small parts at a fast rate. This can keep the cost per piece very low .
In addition, this allows the Finishing Department to use specialized coatings to meet additional customer requirements that cannot be used in the e-coating process.
Advantages of Dip Spin
- Economical method for bulk processing small parts – i.e. fasteners, stampings, and springs
- Repeatable (Espcially for threaded parts)
- Well suited for high production coating
- Transfer efficiency is high (normally over 98%
- Possible to efficiently combine multiple combinations of coatings
Why Dip Spin with The Finishing Department?
The Finishing Department has been utilizing Dip-Spin paint coating since 1984. Our experience in this process is a major advantage to our customers . We can analyze the parts that needs coating and use our knowledge and expertise to provide our customer with maximum efficiency for his product, in both quality and cost.
The Finishing Department has 3 automated Dip-Spin lines. This allows us the flexibility to run multiple coatings and a variety of sizes and shapes.
