Interview with Patrick Van Noten
Patrick Van Noten, General Manager of Pyrox BVBA in Interview.
In your opinion, what are currently the biggest challenges for painting companies and job-shop coaters?
Today as a producer of pyrolysis – low oxygen cleaning - ovens it is important that our products fulfil the strict environment legislation regarding emissions.
Another challenge in the cleaning process is to meet with the speed which whom the customer wants his products ready to use again in the production process.
From your standpoint, what are the best ways to optimize coating processes?
Important for coating companies is working with clean hooks/hangers which improves the quality of the painted parts.
To offer companies a complete cleaning process consisting of the pre-treatment, the removal of paint residues and the after-treatment.
What trends are emerging in your area of industrial painting technology?
Energy efficiency in the field of industrial cleaning and recycling.
As the products are cleaned on location it is not only more efficient but it also extends the lifespan of the essential products as shackles, panels, baking trays…
What developments/solutions does your company offer for these trends?
The cleaning of products within the own powder coating by pyrolysis:
- fast cleaning of shackles, panels and wrongly sprayed components
- longer lifespan of the cleaned materials, more quickly ready for use
- technical support and maintenance
- no need for transport
What significance does PaintExpo have for your company?
Paint Expo is an important trade fair for several years now for us to meet our customers and potential new customers.
