Letter from the President, continued from p. 1

FABTECH show is always well attended and a show our own shop personnel attend. GFS has found FABTECH to be a very valuable show and have received some excellent leads that led to purchases.” FABTECH isn’t the only exciting news CCAI has to share with the membership. Interest in launching new chapters is at an all-time high. Our Las Vegas chapter just held its organizational meeting (read about it inside the newsletter) and we have strong interest in developing chapters in the Southeast and on the West Coast. While 2009 has been dif¿cult for everyone in our industry, 2010 is looking

up and we are excited about the new opportunities CCAI has on the horizon. We hope that you will share in our excitement regarding our new direction and will join us in Atlanta next year at FABTECH and give support to the new chapters where you may have facilities or of¿ces. CCAI is changing, and the opportunities are just beginning. Stay tuned for more exciting news as 2010 begins.

NEWS CCAI’s Strong Showing at COATING EAST in Nashville CCAI was well represented in all aspects of the COATING EAST 2009 show in Nashville, TN. Over 80% of CCAI’s corporate members participated as exhibitors and provided more than 12 hours of educational programming in the technical conference. Overall attendance was 600+ including a variety of CCAI members at the conference and trade show. Despite the economic climate, attendees were upbeat and the exhibitors were very pleased with the EAST version of the regional event co-sponsored by CCAI & PCI, with additional sponsorship support from The Electrocoat Association, The Porcelain Enamel Institute and the Industrial Heating Equipment Association’s Infrared Division. One of the highlights of COATING EAST included an old favorite from past shows…the CCAI Scorecard game. Attendees were encouraged to visit the booths of all CCAI corporate members and were entered in a drawing to win a netbook computer. Dan Anderson of All-Color Powder Coating took home the prize! (see photo below). We also had a great Virtual Spray Paint contest sponsored by Iowa Waste Reduction. Many attendees were able to get hands-on experience with this technology.

FABTECH 2010 Excitement Builds to CCAI’s Launch of FINTECH – The Finishing Technologies Pavilion and Conference

M

ark your calendars! Beginning in 2010, CCAI has a new partnership with FABTECH International & AWS Welding Show, including METALFORM as the sponsor and producer of the Finishing Technologies Pavilion and Conference Program. The event will take place from Nov 2 – 4 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. In 2011, the show and conference will return to Chicago’s McCormick Place; followed by the 2012 show at the Las Vegas Convention Center. FABTECH, North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, and welding exposition and conference, is co-sponsored by four leading manufacturing associations: Fabricators & Manufacturers Association, Int’l (FMA), the American Welding Society (AWS), the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) and the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA). A Finishing Technologies Pavilion, sponsored by CCAI, will complete the manufacturing loop for the show, allowing manufacturers to visit one show each year to see metal manufacturing processes from beginning to end. This event provides an outstanding opportunity for our CCAI Corporate members to reach an audience of thousands of visitors interested in finishing products and services. When FABTECH surveyed past attendees about what technologies they would like to see added to future FABTECH shows, 37.6% said Finishing/Painting/Coatings. CCAI is uniquely qualified to bring all finishing technologies to FABTECH, allowing us to further CCAI’s mission of providing education and training on finishing technologies to a broader audience that attends FABTECH. A group of more than 30 CCAI corporate and board members recently toured the FABTECH 2009 show floor in Chicago, which concluded on November 18. The show floor was impressive and all CCAI members currently exhibiting told us during the tour that FABTECH 2009 was another great show. Floor traffic was tremendous and everyone felt the new Finishing Technologies Pavilion would provide a much bigger showcase for finishing. Booth space for CCAI’s Finishing Pavilion is now available. Visit www.ccaiweb.com and click on the FABTECH information on the right side of the home page to review the details.

CUSTOM COATER MEMBER NEWS PHOENIX COATERS Growth in Tough Times: It is Possible!

I

t’s not often that everyone agrees on something, however, most will agree that 2009 has been a tough year. But, hard times can also bring opportunities. CCAI Custom Coater member, Phoenix Coaters, is a prime example of this! A new 303,000 square foot facility is currently under construction near their present Beaver Dam, WI facility. The announcement was made this past summer and installation is currently underway on the multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art, high volume, production E-coat with the ability to top coat either liquid or powder both commercial as well as CARC military coatings finishing system. According to CCAI Custom Coater member Brian Wendorff, the expansion more than doubles finishing capacity for Phoenix. “Before deciding which way to proceed with our expansion,” Wendorff notes, “we talked with our customers so that we could design a system that will meet their needs. We believe we are building a system that is second to none. Our computer system that was installed two years ago begins tracking jobs from the time they enter our facility. This offers phenomenal traceability so we know exactly where parts are in our production system. It also builds operator confidence. All of our

Construction is underway near the Beaver Dam facility.

painters act as inspectors to ensure quality.” Phoenix’s customer base includes the Military, OEM companies and several fabricating and machining companies. This new system, being built by Therma-Tron-X, has unique features such as a part size window of 6 ft wide X 14.5 ft. long 8 ft. vertical and 3,500 lb. weight capacity per trolley. The 15-stage pretreatment system has an Alodine aluminum conversion coating which will eliminate the need to wash primer or manually conversion coat parts prior to hanging on the production lines. Phoenix Coaters has facilities in Beaver Dam, Mayville and Berlin, WI. They are military-certified CARC specialists and offer finishing services in liquid, powder and electrocoat. Mr. Wendorff states that their facilities are operating six and seven days a week. Work comes in primarily from the Midwest but they do work for others across the nation and even some foreign companies. Yes, even in tough times there are success stories. We’re happy to share a CCAI member’s success. Do you have a success story? We’d love to share it in a future issue of The Finishing Touch! Send Kelly LeCount an email (klecount@one.net) and tell her you have a finishing success story to tell!

Northern Illinois Chapter – Bernie Downey Recognized

Improving Energy Efficiencies & Green Technologies Update The Twin Cities October event was a dinner meeting presentation by Jim Radford, President of OTF, held at O’Gara’s in St. Paul.

Subjects covered by Jim included efficient use of LP and natural gas; electric bill components examined and broken down; cost control for end users in forming an Energy Action Plan and a discussion on available industrial energy rebates and incentives. Jim also detailed two actual energy case studies of a powder custom coater operation and a large OEM that went from a paint to a powder coating system. The presentation ended with a Q & A session.
