The right powder spray gun can make all the difference in your powder coating quality. At BoothsandOvens.com, we always recommend a professional-grade powder spray gun from companies like Wagner or Gema. A professional-grade powder gun allows you to get consistent results with less effort and less operator training. If something does go wrong with your gun, professional-grade guns are backed by their manufacturers and are easy to get replacement parts for.
What Is a Powder Spray Gun?
A powder spray gun is a type of specially designed application gun that applies an electrostatic charge to the powder. This charge is what allows the powder to stick to an unfinished part. Powder spray guns come in manual and automatic models; a manual powder spray gun has a handheld spray gun attached to a base that holds the powder and is moved manually around a shop, while an automatic array is usually installed in a larger system and the unfinished parts are moved to the guns via an automated line.
If you want to start powder coating, you absolutely must have a powder spray gun – it’s essential to your operation.
Which Gun Is Right for Your Operation?
You can’t go wrong with any professional gun – however, each gun does something slightly better than the other one. Learn more about the different brands of powder spray gun and the benefits of each one here.
Which Gun Configuration Do I Need?
If you are looking at a new handheld powder spray gun for your batch coating operation, you may have come across the terms box-fed and hopper-fed. A box-fed gun simply pulls the powder straight from the box and is great if you are using multiple colors every day. A hopper-fed gun holds the powder in a sealed container that constantly mixes and fluidizes the powder, which is what you need for many special-effect powders. Each type have their benefits, which you can read more about here.
