Interview with Leszek Szatkowski
Leszek Szatkowski, Owner, Szatkowski s.c. in Interview.
In your opinion, what are currently the biggest challenges for painting companies and job-shop coaters?
Definitely optimization of the anti-corrosion coating process. By this I mean the shortest application times (robotization of workstands) and the selection of such materials to assure maximal life of the coating on the protected element. All this with a view to protecting the environment, to which we are obliged by emission limiting regulations.
From your standpoint, what are the best ways to optimize coating processes?
A good solution is to create comprehensive technological lines (fully automated), equipped with surface treatment equipment before applying protective coatings, as well as devices suited to the technology of applying protective coatings.
What trends are emerging in your area of industrial painting technology?
Industrial surface coating, after its preparation (appropriate profile, development and surface cleanliness class), is associated with the precise selection of painting sets to the environmental conditions prevailing in the area in which the structure or element will function. A noticeable trend is the development of spray metallization with such metal alloys as Zn, Zn-Al., Al. Catheteric painting using water-borne paints using an electric charge is another trend.
What developments/solutions does your company offer for these trends?
We provide our clients with solutions that fully meet market expectations. STG provides tools that enable the optimization of individual processes, including the implementation of robots that are able to replace the human factor. We offer machines and devices for rotary processing. We offer modern (invertor) spray metallization machines. We have qualified staff with extensive experience in the field of anti-corrosion, and thus, we are able to meet the necessary standards and quality requirements.
What significance does PaintExpo have for your company?
We are a company with an established position on the domestic market and many years of experience in anti-corrosion. The list of international partners satisfied with cooperation is also systematically growing. Due to the fact that we are a supplier of the highest quality solutions, and our offer includes parts from renowned world producers - we decided to present our offer to the World and open ourselves to new international contacts. PaintExpo is perfect for this occasion and we hope to establish numerous new professional contacts.
