Titanium Anodizing Consultants for Hire


Titanium Anodizing Consultants


titanum anodizing consultantsLet’s say that your company is outsourcing a lot of titanium anodizing. And you have made the decision to bring anodizing in house. You got on the internet or found a trade publication and contacted a couple of anodizing equipment companies and maybe even got a few quotations.  The problem is that you are not sure of your facts.  You have a nagging feeling that something is missing, you are right!

It is one thing to buy a piece of anodizing equipment; it is quite another building a functioning anodizing system in your factory. The more you learn about the process the more you realize how little you know!  One question leads to another – So you think maybe you better hire one or two titanium anodizing consultants before you get wet… Good idea!


Titanium Anodizing Consultants Tend to Specialize


Titanium Anodizing Consultants come in all shapes and sizes. All anodizing experts tend to specialize in one or more aspects of the game. Some are better with anodizing chemistry. Others are really good at specifying the equipment and others are terrific at process and finish control.  However, just because a person is skilled at one aspect of anodizing does not mean he or she is skilled at all aspects of anodizing. You need to find out what the person you are hiring really knows and what they do not.

Titanium anodizing is one of the most specialized kinds of anodizing.  If you are in the business of designing a system for medical devices and have never done this processing before, then  qualified titanium anodizing consultants can save you a lot of time and money.



Titanium Anodizing Consultants – Full or Part Time?


“Know thyself…”   Is it better to hire full-time titanium anodizing consultants or part-time?  The answer is yes to both. Lets be clear…  You must understand your needs before you hire anyone. That means you need to do your homework. You will find that as you get deeper into the anodizing business the periodic use of part-time titanium anodizing experts is a dynamite tool for solving specific problems and adding efficiency and capability to your business.  As the operation gets going, you will of course need to have someone full-time to operate the system. But many times what you need is knowledge and information, not bodies hanging around.

Titanium anodizing lends itself nicely to writing up detailed specification and process instructions. If you have never purchased titanium anodizing equipment , then using  titanium anodizing consultants are a must – even if only for a brief period of time.



Titanium Anodizing Consultants – The Bottom Line


The bottom line in hiring an anodizing expert is to know your specific needs at specific times in your anodizing project – your needs will change as your anodizing operation grows.  As you progress from equipment design and specification – to construction then full production, your use of experts will of course diminish as you gain knowledge and confidence.
