The Client
Hadrian Manufacturing Inc. is a manufacturer of high quality bathroom partitions and lockers in a variety of designer colors and special effect finishes.

The Challenge
Because Hadrian strives to offer high-quality, durable products that can withstand the test of time, they are constantly seeking ways to achieve those goals, while at the same time maintaining optimum efficiency. That’s why, when Hadrian wanted to lower their powder consumption and speed up their color change time, they turned to Gema USA to upgrade their equipment.

The Solution
Hadrian upgraded to Gema USA’s OptiSystem™, installing OptiGuns™ and OptiTronic™ Control Units. To maximize their efficiency, a five-zone vertical light curtain part recognition system was integrated with Hadrian’s existing PLC to give them accurate automatic gun triggering and repeatable results.

The Savings
The OptiSystem’s precision control and accuracy has enabled Hadrian to save money. Faster color change time and less time lost due to maintenance has greatly improved their efficiency. The uniform air volume control and high first-pass transfer efficiency of the OptiSystem has created powder savings of 15%, while improving the quality and consistency of their finished products. With results like these, Hadrian expects a payback on their investment in only 12 months!

“We understand we have the best available equipment in the industry; therefore, we know we produce the best quality finish at the utmost efficiency.”
— Spencer McIvor, Hadrian Manufacturing Inc.
