Automotive Painting Technology: A Monozukuri-Hitozukuri Perspective

Springer
Show/hide full description or See full details

This book offers unique and valuable contributions to the field. It offers breadth and inclusiveness. Most existing works on automotive painting cover only a single aspect of this complex topic, such as the chemistry of paint or paint booth technology. Monozukuri and Hitozukuri are Japanese terms that can be translated as “making things” and “developing people” but their implications in Japanese are richer and more complex than this minimal translation would indicate. The Monozukuri-Hitozukuri perspective is drawn from essential principles on which the Toyota approach to problem-solving and continuous improvement is based. From this perspective, neither painting technology R&D nor painting technology use in manufacturing can be done successfully without integrating technological and human concerns involved with making and learning in the broadest sense, as the hyphen is meant to indicate. The editors provide case studies and examples -- drawn from Mr. Toda’s 33 years of experience with automotive painting at Toyota and from Dr. Saito’s 18 years experience with IR4TD, the research-for-development group he leads at the University of Kentucky -- that give details on how these two principles can be integrated for successful problem-solving and innovation in industry, in university R&D, and in the collaboration between the two.

The book will bring readers up to date on progress in the field over the last decade to provide a basis for and to indicate fruitful directions in future R&D and technology innovation for automotive painting.

This book is 157 pages of pure eye candy. Whatever the vehicle--from classic hot rod to pick-up to chopper--a custom paint job sets it apart. Paint will make or break any vehicle project. Paint is also one of the most costly elements of any custom project. But not all paint jobs are created equal, so how can you tell which style, technique, or scheme will suit the unique demands of your vehicle and budget? Before making a big investment--whether you're hiring a painter or doing the job yourself--turn to this book for a clear idea of what works and what doesn't.

Drawing on years of experience running her own custom painting shop, JoAnn Bortles reviews the full array of options for paints, graphics, and effects. In an easygoing and engaging manner, and with photographs to illustrate her points, she explains the colors and paint designs that apply in various paint schemes and shows what might work especially well in certain situations and for particular vehicles.

  • If you're hiring a shop to do your paint, Chapter 2 shows how to find the right shop and painter for your project and how to work with that shop to get the best paint job you can get.
