Keys to success

Thursday, 7 March 2013 | Posted by: Natallia Abraztsova, European Coatings Journal

Cutting energy and production costs, maintaining quality when scaling up from small batches to large-scale production and producing more in a shorter period of time are challenges coatings manufacturers are faced with. What is a real key to success enabling to keep product quality and performance?

It is obvious that the modern production technology offers much more options and possibilities than the technology of another time. For example in terms of protection – the production today is much safer: The facilities have improved protection against explosions; the release of solvents is keeping at the lowest rate. Moreover, the requirements for safety have increased. It is no secret, that these evolutional steps have taken place due to increasing environmental requirements and regulations, new standards and the advancing development of EDP systems.

But still, product quality and performance are keys to success for both, customers and manufacturers. After all, it is they who are faced with the challenge of cutting energy and production costs, maintaining quality when scaling up from small batches to large-scale production, and producing more in a shorter period of time.

Some manufacturers believe that fully automated production lines hold the key to achieving significant reductions in labour costs and improving product consistency and traceability. But is it all down to automation? I, for one, believe it is the people behind each and every technology who are the real keys to success!

Production technology is also a big topic at the upcoming European Coatings SHOW 2013 in Nuremberg. If you are interested in this topic, you can download all the information on exhibitors, products, booth numbers and floor plans using the free ECS 2013 app, which is now available for iPhone and Android from http://www.european-coatings.com/Markets-Companies/EC-Market-Navigator.

I’m looking forward to meeting you in Nuremberg!
