Becker Industrielack GmbH

Innovative anodized effect

The conventional anodic oxidation process employs an acidic liquid as medium, a process that generates greenhouse emissions in the form of perfluorinated chemicals (PFCs). By adopting Becker’s new coating application to create an anodized effect on plastic substrates, this process is completely avoided. Plastic substrates can now be finished in a range of anodized effects that closely replicate the appearance of anodized metal. The ‘glimmer’ and ‘grain’ effect is seen from every angle. The grain size and colours of the metallic effect can be adjusted as required. Available in several colours, the new anodized effect coatings are helping transform mobile design.

Brainflash Patententwicklungs GmbH

The unrivalled original

Edrizzi paint mist separators, cubes made of 100% used paper, revolutionized the coating industry 15 years ago. The system absorbs up to 100 kg overspray/m². The change from wet to dry absorption eliminates all chemicals in the separation process and lowers energy costs significantly. Cubes that have reached absorption capacity are practically disposed of like ordinary domestic waste thus reduce cost intensive special waste. The flexible, modular system can be implemented in any kind of plant of the coatings industry. It became synonymous for dry separation in a „cardboard box“, which inspired other manufacturers to produce replications. The trend towards dry absorption is to be welcomed in consideration of environment protection. Though, due to the existing patent protection, replicas lack important features of the original system, which leads to limitations in function and disposal.

ensutec Products GmbH

Atomizing optimization saves paint

The airmatic atomizing optimisation of ensutec Products has acquired an excellent reputation for its efficiency and reliability within many companies covering nearly all industries involved in painting and coating. The key advantages are surely the considerable savings in paint consumption and consequently in VOC-relevant solvents. Another benefit is the saving of compressed air while having better quality on the surface. The noticeable reduction in overspray and a lower contamination of the spray booth are additional strong arguments to implement the system. It optimizes the paint atomization and extends the SB50 and the application efficiency. Furthermore, the compressed air can be heated or cooled so that the painting processes will be more material- and energy efficient.

Smart 2-C coating reduces costs for paint-overspray removal

Ensutec Products GmbH offers with its Fematop a highly cost efficient and environmental friendly alternative to paint-overspray removal for floor metal grids. The floor metal grids are coated in a simple process. The coating creates a “sacrifice-layer” on the cleaned grids. Because of the multiplex technique, this coating can be used over a long period before a new coating is required. The period depends on the amount of overspray and type of paint material. The grids contaminated with paint can simply be brushed off with a hard stiffed broom. There are nearly no long standstill-times for the paint cabins. Users experience considerable cost savings of up to 80% versus the traditional cleaning costs as no removal-, transport-, cleaning- and reinstallation costs occur .

Duplex-Anlage zur Abluftreinigung nach Beschichtung

Duplex air treatment facilities with molecular sieves make environmental protection possible without any running costs. Painting and coating works produce emissions in a discontinuous way after the works are finished. Depending on the painting, set-up time and the size of the immersion-painted components, the VOC concentration varies. Duplex facilities level out these differences in the VOC concentrations via an intermediate storage in molecular sieves and enable a regular and constantly high concentration level. The exhaust air volume is reduced to a fraction of its original volume and the emissions contained in the exhaust air and thus the heating value is increased proportionally. Downstream combustion facilities become heat generators. Alternatively, the purification can be carried out via a heating and power plant, which also generates electricity from exhaust air.

Production line for the surface treatment of three-dimensional components

The Decoline II from Singulus Technologies integrates metallizing in a vacuum (cathode atomization/sputtering) plus all coating and pre-treatment steps into a single production process, and transports the components through all process stages automatically. The Polycoater is a central element of the production line. The coating system is conceived as an inline machine and operates according to the vacuum cathode atomization principle. Compared to batch production involving evaporation deposition, this solution automates the production process and its short cycle times markedly cut production costs. For optimum coating of all sides, the components can be rotated in the vacuum. This solution for the finishing of three-dimensional components is almost unique. It offers the industry in particular the prospect of further cost savings, and markedly simplifies logistics.

Sunkiss Matherm

Curing with thermoreactors

The Thermoreactor works by catalytic combustion of the gas. This combustion, flameless at low temperature has the immense advantage of being an energy emitter in the form of infrared in a broad spectrum of 3 to 8 microns which corresponds exactly to the absorption spectrum of paints. This concordance of the spectra favors a perfect absorption of the energy by the painting in all its thickness. Evaporation of solvents or water for water-soluble paints is from the inside of the paint film to the outside. The drying and the polymerization processes are thus greatly accelerated. Drying times are always much shorter than drying in an oven with hot air circulation or compared to electric infrared whose emission spectra are less concordant. This deep drying with good evaporation of the transfer agents of the paint reduces the risk of bubbling

Timmer GmbH

New back pressure regulator offers minimized shear stresses

The new 3:1 back-pressure regulator "TimECO" from Timmer was developed for the paint industry. Since the consumption rates of the paint spray guns are not constant in time, undesired pressure fluctuations in the ring circuit system are possible. Back-pressure regulators (BPR) are intended to solve this problem. This is achieved through automatic control of the flow cross-section by the pneumatic BPR. Strong shear stresses in conventional BPRs that can damage the paint are well known. In the new BPR, the fluid is guided in a straight line so that dangerous shear stresses are hardly possible. To this effect, an innovative double diaphragm system was developed. The maximum flow defined by the manufacturer is 40 l/min, whereby the fluid pressure must not exceed 25 bar.

Wiltec BV

Modularly changable filters for overspray separation

In collaboration with Columbus Industries, Wiltec introduces the new range of box filters, called PC Pleat. This new development makes it possible to change filter modularly. Modular exchange means that the filter wall is divided into compartments, each equipped with a box filter, which can be changed separately. Only the filters which are completely saturated will be exchanged, which saves enormously on filter costs. Additional advantages are the extremely high holding capacity, which results in fewer filter changes and thus less production stoppage. Due to the very high efficiency air channels remain clean which keeps maintenance costs low and extends the life of the installation. Reduced energy costs due to very low resistance throughout the life of the filter; and the ready-to-use concept leads to less time losses at filter changes.

Winterthur Instruments AG

Innovative measuring systems for non-contact layer thickness

Every industrially manufactured product has a functional or decorative coating that can be applied either wet or dry. The amount of coating applied can often only be determined some time after the coating has been applied. Winterthur Instruments is presenting two measuring systems for non-contact layer thickness measurement. These systems enable reduced material consumption, avoidance of waste and complete quality control. While the coatmaster flex system is a hand-held measuring device and was designed for flexible use, the coatmaster 3D system is an imaging system for integration into the production process. Both technologies measure the thickness of wet, sticky, powdery and solid coatings without contact and non-destructive immediately after application. Both devices work according to the principle of thermal layer testing.
