          ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

          • Weld steel solid stock, galvanized stock, flat stock, tubing, U channel, sheet metal & expanded metal materials in various sizes and shapes in the process of manufacturing high end, outdoor, casual furniture.

          • Welders are expected to set their welding machine and keep the proper settings in order to make quality welds that will maintain the desired structural integrity and require minimum grinding in order to achieve the desired look.
          • Welders are expected to maintain the proper gas mixture at the proper flow rate to maximize weld penetration and minimize porosity & the creation of pin holes.
          • Welders are expected to fit parts in jigs properly so the item being welded is make correctly.
          • Parts that do not fit properly into a jig need to be reported to the welding assistant or their supervisor so the necessary corrections can be made to either the parts or the jig, depending which is not correct.

            Powder Coater

            SUMMARY: The Finishing Department Powder Coater’s primary job function is the application of either the primer powder or the colored top coat of powder onto frames & parts with the highest efficiency and effectiveness.  Frames and parts come in many different shapes and sizes from large bulky tables & chaises to small pieces the size of paper clips.  Powder thickness, complete coverage of the item, transfer efficiency, powder usage, focus on getting the powder into cracks & crevices are just some of the areas where particular attention needs to paid to in order to maintain the highest quality finish.

            ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES:

            • Apply powder coatings onto steel & aluminum furniture frames and parts using a powder application gun.
            • Double check to make the sure the correct settings are on the powder coating gun control panel for the color powder that you are about to spray before starting to spray.
            • Always make sure to spray powder at approximately 12 inches from the part, not too close, but not too far away in order to achieve the best transfer efficiency and coverage.

            Daily Checks:

            • Proper ground from the powder application machine to the finishing line.
            • Inspect & check the powder hopper, gun & lines for proper operation. Some parts do wear out, so it’s important to check those parts at least once a week to make sure they are still in a condition to provide optimal desired spray pattern & transfer efficiency.
            • Observe the conveyor to make sure you don’t see it stopping when it shouldn’t be or jerking too much.
            • Make sure the dust collection system is operating properly.
            • Train and become familiar with “powder mil (1 mil is equal to one thousands of an inch) thickness” in order to efficiently apply the correct amount of powder.
            • The correct thickness of powder will provide the best protection and the correct look as well as not waste powder.
            • Pay attention and observe the powder that is being applied in order to notice if there is anything unusual about the color of the unbaked powder based your experience with the powder, such as color, texture of the powder, particle size, clumpiness, etc. Stop spraying the powder anytime you notice something unusual and notify your supervisor immediately.
            • Make sure to apply the powder to the entire frame. Pay special attention to NOT miss any spots or spray to thin or not enough mils to get the desired level of coverage of powder depending of the specific powder.  Some powders may require more or less of a mil thickness in order to achieve the desired look for that particular powder.
            • Apply either a primer under coat or a color top coat in accordance with established standards & specifications.
            • Use proper safety equipment & procedures at all times.
            • Inspect your work for quality and make sure it meets established standards & specifications.
            • Keep work area clean and picked upped.
