Abstract: The technological progress in the equipment design and production of the thermosetting powder coatings industry is described. The changes in modeling and prototype manufacturing due to the transformation of design methods from two-dimensional to three-dimensional concept which is combined with theoretical research are investigated. The application of digital technology and CNC technology enables the more accuracy of equipment components. The professional software is applied to simulate the production equipment and optimize its structure and performance. The usage of new materials has resulted in changes in the product sequence and performance improvement of key components. The technological progress of powder coating equipment in terms of intelligence and environmental protection is analyzed. In particular， the explosion-proof technology is focused on. Meanwhile， the shortcomings of equipment for powder coating and the solutions thereto are proposed.
