GLRPPR Sector Resource: Kidde-Fenwal - New Coating Technologies Provide Big Payoffs
Kidde-Fenwal - New Coating Technologies Provide Big Payoffs
By updating its coating operations with 1990s technologies including computer-programmed spray applications and ultraviolet (UV) curing, Kidde-Fenwal Incorporated reduced its air emissions by 75%, eliminated 20 drums per year of flammable waste, and reduced its production cycle by an entire day. The new system, which also reduced the amount of coating used per printed circuit board by 96%, is expected to save the company $300,000 annually, providing a payback on its investment in less than one year.
