Automotive and Intralogistics Customer Chooses Schuberts For Their New UK Factory

Founded in 1953, Jungheinrich ranks among the leading solutions providers for the intralogistics sector, with revenue of €3.8 billion and more than 18,000 employees worldwide. With a comprehensive portfolio of material handling equipment, automatic systems and services, the company is able to offer customers tailored solutions for the challenges posed by Industry 4.0 from a single source.

 

Schuberts were approached to design, manufacture and install a bespoke high-end finishing system to deal with solvent based coatings, but to future proof the system for water-based in the coming years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The system comprises of 5 separate ‘cells’, side by side to give the best possible product flow and quality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two of the cells are preparation dust booth enclosures, featuring full filtered air input, extraction and controlled air diffusion back into the factory zone.

 

Two of the cells are spray/dry enclosures, have modulating burners for spraying or drying, either full recirculation or full vent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The systems can run from ambient to 20c for spraying and up to 60c for drying and baking. Full interlocks are provided and automatic roller doors ensure the zones are kept sealed during each of the operations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A large paint mix room has permanent extraction, filtered air input, an ATEX heating system and a bunded floor to contain any spills.

 

This system boasts full HMI touch screens, full ATEX certification and the highest level of design, quality and manufacturing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Made in Britain at its best!

Schuberts Re-Investing In The Future Of Finishing With Giardina Group

As part of the continual growth and advancement in the UK, Schuberts have yet again re-invested in the latest finishing technology. Schuberts are the ONLY manufacturer and supplier of finishing equipment in the UK with a production-spec Test Centre, Lab and Training Facility.

This month, we Schuberts the delivery and installation of the new Giardina Dualtech 420, fully automatic through-feed spray machine system. This machine is suitable for wood, metal, plastics, glass, composites and many other industries. It will accept 1k waterbased, 1k solvent based, 2k waterbased, 2k solvent based and lots of other sprayable coatings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Capable of running up to 8m/min, it boasts multiple wet spray circuits, 8 Wagner GA400 guns, full self-cleaning paint recovery belt and a whole host of other features that set it aside from the normal competition. With inverter driven fans the system can be tailored to the customers exact requirements. Made ready for Industry 4.0, the Giardina machine is prepared for the future!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All Dualtech spray machines have in common is the top quality of key technical features, including two opposing painting arms and a large cabin which guarantees an optimal application on both the panel’s surface and edges.
Other noteworthy features are the technology to recover paint from the conveyor belt and the latter’s cleaning system, unequalled solutions in terms of extremely low washing solvent consumption, a longer belt service life and a very simple operation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All Dualtech machines can be fitted with accessories and technological solutions to further increase their flexibility, productivity and reliability. This includes the “Dualfast”, the system that allows you to change guns – and hence the spraying circuit – in less than 60 seconds, thereby maintaining optimal working conditions; the option of the PLC controlled vertical positioning system of the guns also guarantees excellent painting cycle repeatability; the electronic control for the ventilation inside the spray chamber which is required for extending the efficiency and operating time of the spray machine. All versions are available with a “Dry” or “Wet” solid particulate disposal system.

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!

20161219_155655_1482249906783_resized

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

122

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.

20160108_085329_resized

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

20160108_085751_resized

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.
