DOUBLE PRODUCTION SPEED WITH BLASTING CHAMBER

PORT COLBORNE, ONTARIO, CANADA

BACKGROUND

J. Oskam Steel Fabricators is located in Port Colborne, Ontario, approximately 20 minutes from Niagara Falls. J Oskam manufactures custom engineering projects. They service both Canadian and U.S. markets.

OBJECTIVES

Two years ago, J. Oskam realized that its surface preparation and coatings facilities did not deliver the same quality and performance levels as the other parts of its production services.

At that time, they were using silica sand. J. Oskam only had a converted storage area for blasting projects. In addition, they were subcontracting up to 40% of their painting projects.

J. Oskam wanted to improve its speed and project quality.

SOLUTION

BlastOne was the only company to make a site visit. We gained a better understanding of the facilities, operating environment and strategic plans. Now we could provide helpful solutions:

  • Expand the footprint of both booths from 15’x40’ to 20’x40’.

    This increase would handle all planned production requirements.
  • A monorail system to bring equipment in and out of the booths.

    This reduces handling time and improves worker safety.
  • Switch from silica to garnet abrasive.

    Garnet would improve product quality and reduce production time. Additionally, it would lower our total project costs and improve the safety for their blasting team.
  • Improve visibility with a new light system and less dust on-site.

RESULTS

J. Oskam selected BlastOne to lead this project. We delivered results quickly and installed a turnkey solution.

Within the first year of using BlastOne’s custom blast booth, J. Oskam increased total production. They could operate with half as many operators. The new paint cure system lowered cure time. Cure time went from 12 hours to 3-4 hours. There was now more time available for final assembly. Overall product quality improved.

The biggest beneficiaries of the new facilities are the blasters and painters themselves. We improved visibility, ventilation, and work handling. This created a stress-free, reliable operation. Happy employees are better employees.

J. Oskam achieved peace-of-mind. We have become long-term partners. BlastOne is committed to helping J. Oskam maintain cost-effective corrosion control.
