Use of specialised jigs can lead to significant cost and quality benefits being achieved in paint plant and other similar surface treatment operations. The accurate and reproducible presentation of the product for processing is vital in the optimisation of spray patterns, minimising the use of paint and avoiding loss of quality and reducing rework requirements. Jigs will also minimise any distortion during thermal curing as well as maximising plant loading.
