Yorke Towne, Toronto, Test Centre Sees Additional Install

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yorke Towne Supplies Ltd, Schuberts’ sole agents for Ontario, Canada have just taken delivery of the next phase of the new production-spec Test Centre.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fully integrated ATEX CSA system features a manual smart booth spray system. This constantly monitors and automatically adapts the airflow and pressure differential inside the spray zone, keeping dust out, vapours inside and overspray drawn into the extraction filters. The system makes up for doors being opened, quality and saturation of the filtration system and changes in factory pressures (dust extraction, loading bay doors etc)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A flash-off section connects directly to the spray enclosure and allows coated product to flow out, settle and vent before going into the Schubox for rapid drying. The flash-off features filtered air input and low level extraction, again with 1000 lux lighting sets.

The Schubox completes the Test Centre, allowing either solvent or water based coatings for wood, glass, PVC, GRP and composites to be rapidly dried, at low temperature in record time. Utilising CSA and ATEX approved gas catalytic log wave infra red emitters, the Schubox can run from 30c to 50c and in combination with BA stainless, fireproof carcass, filtered air input and a unique recirculating airflow inside the Schubox.

Big Is Beautiful!

Schuberts have just handed over the largest, highest capacity Schubox ever installed! This fully automatic turn-key curing system is feeding from a through-feed automatic spray machine and stacker.

The Schubox installation is some 17m long end to end and 8m wide and features 2 individual processing lanes.

Two automatic inverted floor conveyors are specially designed to pull 8 trolleys of 500kg each at a set (adjustable) rate through the Schubox. That’s 8000kg of product being moved!

Automatic doors on the infeed and outfeed mean the trolleys can be indexed through the system with minimal heat loss.

 

This gas catalytic technology is designed to cure 1000 microns (1mm!) of wet fire proof paint in a single pass in 90 minutes at 60c. There is no other system on the market that is able to process this film thickness in this time at such a low temperature.

Each full trolley carries 22 wet panels and each lane in the Schubox holds 8 trolleys at a time inside. Based on a single shift and DOUBLE sided coating, this Schuberts installation is capable of processing 800 panels in a single shift!

 

The Schubox has instantly made a huge impact on production volumes and times. Previously, the coatings were taking 3 days to dry. Now just 90 minutes!

It goes without saying, we’re very proud of this Schubox.

New Robotic Spray System Installed For The UK Automotive Industry

New robotic spray coating line being put through its paces at a UK automotive brake disc manufacturer. Able to spray both water based and solvent coatings, the 6 axis ATEX-rated robot, sprays an accurate film weight onto rotating automotive brake discs.

Prior to spraying and after manual loading, pre-heating is carried out through a custom infra-red tunnel to ensure all discs are at the same temperature for spraying.

Each disc is rotated automatically in front of the Wagner spray system before moving into a dedicated flash-off area at 60c.

Once the flash-off process has happened, the discs go into a hot air curing oven at 190c.

After curing, the product is force cooled and offloaded by hand.
