Metal7 excels in surface coating expertise thanks to continuous investment in thermal spray technology over several decades. Today, we are recognized as one of the largest thermal spray operations in North America. This process involves applying metallic, ceramic or cermet materials over a substrate to improve its surface properties, including resistance to wear, corrosion, heat, and chemical attacks. The choice of coating type depends on the surface properties required for optimum performance.
The Innovation and Engineering teams follow a systematic, structured approach to managing new product development. This divides the process into distinct stages with informed decisions at each step, optimizing the chances of success and minimizing risks. For continuous improvement projects, we adopt a Lean Six Sigma approach aimed at improving process quality, reducing costs, increasing operational efficiency, and enhancing customer satisfaction.
