Cost Gauge Pro estimates the operational costs for applying organic finishes based on application requirements, materials, line configuration, energy consumption, and labor. The results are presented both on an annualized and per square foot basis. 

Designed for use with Microsoft Excel software, Cost Gauge Pro is based on performance models used extensively in the finishing industry. These models have been refined by over 25 years of empirical data gathered over hundreds of finishing projects. Cost Gauge Pro provides the most complete operational costing tool on the market today. Both OEM's and custom finishers will find Cost Gauge Pro invaluable for:

  • Estimating the Actual Costs for Finishing Product.
  • Pricing Rationale.
  • Return On Investment (ROI).
  • Comparing Liquid Painting Costs vs. Powder Coating Costs.
  • "What-iffing" the Economic Effects on the Finishing Operation due to changes in Coating Materials, Line Configuration, Labor, Energy, and Application Requirements.
Cost Gauge Pro is available in three versions:
  • Cost Gauge Pro Powder.
  • Cost Gauge Pro Liquid.
  • Cost Gauge Pro Combo.

Each version is tailored to a general "use" case. These "use" cases include powder coating, liquid based paints, and the combination of both to support the analysis of alternatives. Microsoft Excel-based Cost Gauge Pro is extremely easy to use since its operation is based on the popular spreadsheet. The user is presented with a spreadsheet organized so that categorized data entries are toward the top of the spreadsheet. These entries then flow into the calculated values which are displayed in the bottom lines.

Operating Requirements:

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows only.
  • Microsoft Excel (32 bit version).
