  • Automation (e.g. use of painting robots)
  • Digitalisation

What developments/solutions does your company offer for these trends?

  • Simulation tool which, however, can also be used directly as a planning tool
  • Complete integration of complex automation systems such as handling or paint robots
  • During digitization we can coordinate the following tasks:

o Remote maintenance/fault analysis

o Networking powder consumption/powder storage

o Storage of parameters in the system control, paperless on part basis

o MES for the interface between ERP and plant

o Display at the open stations how the profiles are to be hung

o Energy monitoring

o Post calculation of the effective costs per order

o Coating thickness measurement before baking

o QS report

o Inheritance of parameters to all trades

What significance does PaintExpo have for your company?

  • It is an important platform where existing customer contacts can be maintained and expanded
  • Results in interesting new contacts, from which also new orders originate
