Digitalization is occurring across all manufacturing industries, and the coatings sector is no exception. The quantity of data that can be leveraged to improve all business activities—from new product development to customer service—is increasing significantly. For example, using industrial coatings to make light metals withstand corrosive and high-temperature environments has made possible previously impossible or impractical. Industrial coatings also accelerate the development and adoption of new technologies.
Notably, the combination of humans and advanced technology is pushing manufacturers to form advanced coatings strategies. In this regard, several industrial coating treatment plants are now leveraging AI to increase output capacity and quality. It is also pushing design engineers to adopt smart coating approaches leveraging advanced technologies like AI, IoT, and data analytics are possessing pre-defined properties that respond to external or environmental factors, such as pressure, chemical, light, heat, and other stimuli. They can also detect and prevent corrosion and extend the life of components and structures made from corrosive materials. Thus, they improve a material’s efficiency by reducing maintenance costs and inspection times. Alongside, manufacturers on wheels are introducing robots to support and speed up the human, or system, part of the coating process.
