Paint and Spray Finishing Equipment

Paint finishing processes are an integral component of many manufacturing ventures. Products commonly subjected to this step include containers, metal forms and components, glass or paperboard products and wood or timber items.

Paint and Spray Finishing Equipment

Spraying is the go-to technique for industrial paint finishes. A basic spray-apply system uses a trigger gun that projects liquid paint in even, thin coats. Spray finishing equipment operates under high air pressure, requiring the use of a compatible air-assisted compressor.


Spraying equipment atomizes paints, adhesives and other liquids and powders before applying them directly to surfaces through spray gun applicators. Droplet sizes and patterns influence how effectively an application takes place.

High Volume Low Pressure (HVLP) systems use a regulator to reduce air pressure from a compressor, so only a fraction of system pressure is used for atomization - decreasing overspray, materials consumption and air pollution.

Traditional spray guns using organic solvent-thinned paints create significant overspray and vapor, necessitating large volumes of make-up air and exhaust systems to compensate for changing ambient temperatures, as well as special respirators protection and protective clothing.

Painting companies use service trucks equipped with line-marking sprayers and dyes to apply a coating of chemicals or dyes onto road surfaces and athletic fields. Some trucks may even contain spray booths - all customized to meet specific quality, environmental, and other standards.


Conveyor systems are one of the most integral pieces of equipment found in any warehouse or manufacturing environment. Offering quick and efficient transportation of items between locations, conveyor systems are ideal for businesses that deal with bulky, sharp or mass-produced goods.

Paint and finish applications can help protect objects from harmful environmental and chemical agents while simultaneously improving their aesthetic appeal. Manufacturers can take advantage of coating applications as an opportunity to add specific patterns, designs, or textures into the coating itself.

Spray guns are an essential piece of equipment in modern paint finishing systems and come in various configurations. An air-atomized gun utilizes compressed air and liquid flow to atomize paint particles as they're sprayed onto objects, providing an efficient means for covering larger areas quickly. Other spray guns use high fluid pressure (3,000-psi) to adjust spray patterns or achieve better atomization while others, like airless guns, require no external power source - working similarly to garden hose nozzles.


Before applying paint and coatings to their products, they must first be mixed and blended using mixing technology. Multiple industries rely on this process for creating customized mixes suited for their respective industries' products.

Industrial mixers are heavy-duty pieces of equipment used for mixing liquid and dry materials in various industries such as painting, processing, food manufacturing and more.

Mixers come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, but all serve the same purpose: providing greater control of the blending process so as to meet specific industry standards and requirements.

V-shaped mixers, with their constant division and intermeshing of particles within inclined cylinders, can achieve short blending times by consistently dividing and intermeshing particle suspensions to produce consistent blends with reduced mix ratio variance. V-shaped mixers also make an excellent choice when applications require high speeds or efficiency; tank mixers work better when precise ratios are required and can hold multiple batches at the same time.
