    We are a auto parts manufacturer and looking into putting an A-COAT (Autophoretic) line in our facility. I have read all the good things about the A-Coat and can’t find any negative issues about it. I am interested in hearing from others who has knowledge of A-Coat to tell me what are the disadvantages of the A-COAT.
    If you currently have an A-COAT line in your facility then what kind of headaches or issues you have run into on day to day basis.
    Thanks in advance…

    I CAN’T BELIEVE THAT ALL THE SMART PEOPLE THAT POST ON THIS WEBSITE HAS NO ANSWER FOR MY QUESTION(S).
    MAY BE MIKE, STAN, DAN, BRIT ARE ALL ON VACATION FROM THE MILLIONS THEY EARN AS CONSULTANTS.

    I have taken over during their vacation … My question is: if you add 1 defect to another defect but correct the second defect, do I still count that defect in my overall defect calculation? Thanks, I am at a loss again??

    Rob, don’t assume everyone is on vacation because they don’t answer.  You asked for personal experiences day to day.  Don’t know many consultants that would have that experience.  But, in the spirit of helping, check out this link:

    OR PERHAPS YOUR QUESTION WAS BORING AND POORLY-WORDED?
    geez…what a drama queen
    Autophoretics have many up-sides including 100% coverage, lower harmful emmisions, etc…
    downsides: can be expensive to set up and maintain.   My experience is non-automotive, but the items were subject to harsh environments…stood up pretty good…more than any car would be asked to take on.   the items are currently in use in several theaters of operation.

    My company uses similar chemicals in our converting and lamination products. Our chemical suppliers do autodeposition for other industries. Then only negative thing I have to say is, most of the chemicals have a short shelf life. FIFO is very important. You really should look into pump manufactures, viscosity testing, dry solids testing as well as a method to test for cure of coating. I am sure durometer reading will needed and it’s a pain to find a good durometer to use. I said you need to look into these things because you will find out way too late that what you have is not suited for the job. I’m sure people will read this and think where does this guy get off by saying what you have isn’t right for the job? Well to keep a process running like this you will need many different tools that are hard to find and unique to an industry. Once you get your process running it will do great until something changes. The trick is what do you do after the change?
     
    What type of oven do you plan to use?
