AMCO enhances equipment durability with new powder-coat finish

AMCO equipment parts pass through the curing oven after being powder coated. They then cool off, ready for assembly.

It’s no secret that farm equipment is exposed to some rugged conditions: repeated heavy-duty use, impacts, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light and extreme weather conditions can all take their toll on equipment. Because of this, it’s crucial for farmers to invest in equipment that will last.

AMCO’s new powder-coat finishing system will ensure just that. The benefits of powder coating include:

  • More than twice as durable as a wet-paint finish and better coverage
  • More scratch resistant
  • Resistant to fading
  • Lowers waste, because unused or oversprayed powder that doesn’t adhere to the equipment can be retrieved and reused
  • Once the equipment leaves the oven and cools, it is completely cured.

“With our new powder-coating system, we’re able to offer even better value to our customers,” said Marketing Manager Michael Atwood. “Not only is the finish more durable, it will help maintain the value of the machine much longer.”

The upgrade to the painting system is just the latest step in AMCO’s plan to revitalize its manufacturing setup. “AMCO is very focused on using state-of-the-art equipment so that we are continually able to offer new and innovative products and features,” said Atwood. “Customers can look forward to even more improvements to many of AMCO’s leading models in the coming months.”
