Our Company offers a complete coatings service including coating development, application of coatings to customer specification, manufacture of complete coated & finished components and technology transfer.
- Coating of customer supplied components
It is well understood that the application of a thermally sprayed coating to the surface of a component can greatly increase the value of the subject part and improve performance. The added value can be in the form of extended component lifetime, greatly increased resistance to aggressive environments and lower overall production costs. EPC routinely receives customer supplied products, applies quality controlled thermal spray coatings and delivers back to the customer on time.
- Coating and finishing of high precision engineering components
Many coated components require surface finishing in order to further enhance the function of the thermally sprayed coating. EPC work with a varied and experienced supply chain that provides first class finishing services and who understands that quality of product and delivery, combined with competitive pricing are the keys to success. Our suppliers are routinely monitored under the strict guidelines of our quality system.
- Application development and technology transfer
With extensive knowledge gained from many years working within the thermal spray industry, both at Engineered Performance Coatings and within our partner companies worldwide our technical staff like nothing more than working with customers on new development projects. We will work with you to give the best possible service at every level. This includes initial development phases, development of robust and efficient production techniques, implementation of quality control processes and work instruction packages. Due to our very close relationships with equipment & materials suppliers, we also supply full technology transfer including all required equipment, materials and ongoing support.
- Component repair
Due to rising raw material prices and manufacturing costs, dimensional restoration by thermal spray coating can be a very cost effective solution when faced with the need to replace worn machine parts, mis-machined or damaged components. There are several options available to use, whether by HVOF, Plasma or Flame Spray processing; EPC engineers are ready to help or advise.
- Full manufacture of thermally sprayed components
Due to increased transport cost and customer demands for shorter lead-times, many organisations are working to streamline their supply chain and internal processes. In order to satisfy this demand, EPC work with a diverse and experienced supply chain beginning with raw material procurement, component manufacture, coating and finishing.
