Press Release: November 18, 2020
Stratford Tools is a family run business that has been providing precision sheet metal work for clients in a wide range of market sectors since 1966. Recently, they updated their powder coating line at their manufacturing facility in Buckingham with a brand-new TD Finishing advanced powder coating line and Gema Powder Coating Booth.
For 25 years the existing Pre-Treatment & Paint booth had served the company well but was fast approaching the end of its life. The old pre-treatment was showing signs of deterioration and inefficiency. The outdated application booth and ovens also required replacing with a modern, more efficient solution.
Powder Coating Systems at TD Finishing
The system TD Finishing provided includes a stainless-steel constructed 3.5 stage spray pre-treatment, as well as a two-pass drying and two-pass curing oven. The original monorail conveyor was replaced with a heavier duty, side-track conveyor system with continuous flight bar arrangement to give more capacity & throughput. To improve quality, we installed a brand-new Reverse Osmosis Demin plant to ensure that product receives a pure final water rinse prior to the powder application.
Here’s what Stephen Cooke of Stratford Tools had to say:
"We had operated an aged plant for many years and it became apparent that we had reached point where it needed investment and updating. TD Finishing on several occasions visited our facility to review the plant and discuss our requirements in depth. After receiving and discussing their proposal, we visited several of their existing customers facilities, which convinced us they were the suppliers for us.
Installation began in May 2020 after a brief delay as we had to ensure our facility was Covid secure for the installation teams. TD arrived onsite and began in earnest, delivering and installing to the re-schedule timetable. Once the plant had been commissioned, and after a batch test panels were processed through the plant we were up and running with production parts within the hour. We are extremely pleased with the performance and look of the new facility, as well as the service and expertise TD Finishing provide."
