Sandvik has opened a new powder coating facility at its plant in Ballygawley, Northern Ireland

Sandvik’s crusher and screen factory in Ballygawley, Northern Ireland, saw a new £1.6 million (US$2.5 million) powder coating facility become operational on 27 July. The new facility will provide improved edge protection for the equipment, as well as enhancing resistance to corrosion. The crusher and screen manufacturing process will also benefit from reduced assembly times using the “Kanban” manufacturing philosophy, as well as other operating synergies.

As well as producing improved equipment safety and longevity for customers, the new powder coat plant will also make a substantial contribution to improved environmental, health and safety during manufacturing. This will be achieved through an automated process, improved material utilisation, atmosphere protection and no requirement for hazardous waste disposal.
