Alex Products invests in industry training for our tooling\robotic integration team members and has degreed welding engineers available for any questions.
Alex Products, Bryan Facility (Autocoat, LLC), offers two kinds of coating or paint systems – an electrocoating (E-Coat) system and a Powder coating system.
An electrocoating system applies a charge to a metal part that is then immersed in a coating bath. The process is highly automated and results in a high performing finish that delivers a uniform film build, color consistency, high yield rates and applied cost efficiency, in an environmentally friendly finishing system.
Powder coating is electrostatically applied to a surface as a finely ground powder then heated so that it flows and creates a consistent covering across the entire surface.
Alex Products, through its Technical Center - Ridge Tooling and Automation, allows for a one stop shop. Customers can bring a concept to Alex Products and through the Engineering and Design departments will develop tooling and product capability studies. Tools and machines are built and assembled for manufacturing.
