With focus on functionality, accuracy, and clever engineering, Frei AG has designed a high performance coating machine – for the continuous coating process – to be used for thread coatings, applied with polyester or nylon-based powders.
Since 1975, Frei, an independent Swiss machine manufacturer, has been supplying powder units for a continuous application process, as well as successfully developing machines for industrial niche applications – including for the fastener industry.
Frei points out that this coating system is a closed process with an advantageous integrated recycling process for used powder. It simply leads refurbished powder, thoroughly cleaned, back to the process for reuse. This sophisticated recycling process reduces fine dust pollution in a factory floor and creates a huge saving on raw materials. Its application accuracy is enormous and within the range of micro grams.
