Cost Analysis for Finishing Systems

The operation of a paint system has many variables that affect cost. Effective control of these variables will provide the best quality at the lowest cost.

Some cost variables are part of the design, some are part of the operation, and others are related to decisions on how to run to the system. Each cost variable has to be considered to know how much the system costs to operate and how much to charge for painting a part.
