The True Cost
In almost every case, dip-spin pricing is less expensive than a rack-spray price. However, this is true if you take the dip-spin pricing vs the rack-spray pricing at face value only. When taking into account the cost of poor quality (COPQ) of a dip-spin application for certain parts, rack-spray pricing could end up more advantageous in the long run.

When To Use Dip Spin
Dip-spin is the ideal solution for a vast majority of small to mid-size fasteners or hardware and for numerous metal stamping geometries. In these cases, it would not make sense to pursue a rack-spray application as the benefit would not outweigh the cost. Dip-spin coating has been the gold standard for these types of components and will continue to be in the future.
