Modify the entire plant structure has allowed to renew also the type of paint, passing from a solvent-based coating to a bi-component water paint, which is applied by anthropomorphic robot with electrostatic spraying technology.

The problem to solve

  • change the layout of maximizing production efficiency
  • comply with new regulations on VOC emissions
  • automate the process of painting
  • increase the production

forno di appassimentoThe system includes a spray booth with dry abatement, a drying tunnel and a baking oven. The electrostatic automatic paint application occurs at room temperature in a period of time ranging from 3 to 5 minutes, depending on the sizes of the valves to be painted. This system has been designed so as to comply with the latest regulations regarding VOC emissions (Volatile Organic Compounds) of the Piedmont Region which specify at 10% the maximum concentration of solvent in the coating material.
