We produce aluminum parts (6061-T6) and are finding the need to be able to color them in house. How can we find the info on how this process works and materials to do so?

Well... That question covers a broad spectrum of coating options but as the question was posted in the anodizing forums I will assume you want dyed anodizing type 2.. talk with a local anodizing shop about the color options and what your individual needs are.
If anodizing is not what you had in mind, you can powdercoat, e-coat, paint.. etc.. a more specific question would yield a better more thorough answer..
