Medical equipment isn’t finished until it’s been coated. Injection moldings aren’t done until they’ve been exposed to a vacuum coating or sputtering machine. But what if you’re new to the world of industrial coating? What do you need to know before hiring a company to do it for you? Here are just a few tips.

1. Look for Experience

You don’t want to be a company’s first customer. This goes for any business, but it’s especially true for industrial coating services. You can’t afford to be someone’s learning curve when thousands of dollars of equipment are on the line.

2. Find a Specialist

Instead of hiring a “jack of all trades” that handles multiple types of coating, look for someone with skill and experience in a particular field. For example, if you’re in the metal cutting business, look for companies that deal exclusively with steel.

3. Know Your Limits

Are you under a particular budget? Does your coatings need to be finished in time for a grand opening in six weeks? Make sure you’re upfront with the company about job requirements. If they can’t do it, it’s better to know in advance so you can make other plans.

These are just a few things to keep in mind when looking at thermal evaporation or vacuum coating services. Don’t be afraid to take your time and do your research before making a decision. If you don’t want to ruin your equipment, you’ll want to hire the right company the first time.
