Glass Coater Goes Schubert Route

Not all our installations are large or high-value ones….

Here we have a modest manual installation for a glass coater.

The equipment comprises of a manual spray shop enclosure and a retro-fitted Kit-Cat drying system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed in their waterbased coatings, the glass is put into the drying zone, fitted with gas catalytic infrared. This means the drying time is vastly reduced, the coating is properly dried and the ‘open time’ for dust and contamination is down to 20 mins.

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.

Schuberts Install a New Giardina Automatic Glass Spray System at Esquire Glass

Founded in 1970 Esquire Glass has become one of the UK’s leading independent glass processors.

Their core business is in the production of processed glass panels for the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom industry. However, since 2002 substantial investment in a second factory and ‘state of the art’ glass processing plant has led to the company’s accelerated growth into new markets.

Their newest investment has been on a cutting edge finishing system from Giardina Group and their UK partners, Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Running with waterbased coatings, the new Giardina system is capable of using both solid and far more difficult metallic colours. Fitted with 2 independent spray circuits, the switch between colours and coatings is very quick, meaning the customer can do both long and short runs of glass. All of the Wagner guns have the ability to run different tips and pressures, making the coating control very accurate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Dualtech 416 machine has full belt overspray recovery system, meaning wasted coating can be safely removed from the main belt, filtered and re-introduced into virgin mixes. The recovery system, unlike other systems relies on a series of rubber squeegees that gently, but effectively removes paint, rather than harsh metal blades that scrape and damage the belt over time. This guarantees the longevity of the Giardina belt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The machine also boasts double filtration for the air input system, making the spray zone a clean zone, meaning reworks are a thing of the past.

On the extraction side, there are triple levels of filtration, ensuring incredibly low particulate emissions to atmosphere.

The touchscreen control panel gives the operators fine control over line speed, spray guns, circuits, pressures, gun heights and many other key parameters used for coating – all at the touch of a finger!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed, the glass goes through a flash-off section and then on to a combination drying oven. The glass comes off the end of the line perfectly coated, dry and ready to handle and with a footprint of just 14m from end to end, it really is a compact, high production finishing system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paul Lockett, MD at Esquire says:-

“ Realising we (Esquire Glass) needed to be more flexible in the painting of our glass products, we spent last summer conducting due diligence on various systems. We found the Giardina system in collaboration with Schuberts UK to be the most effective for our needs. It was installed at the end of Jan ’18 and has already shown huge benefit by taking our production from 400 to 1600 pieces per shift. So far, we are very happy with the machine and are looking forward to developing it’s use over the coming year”

WB Group Chooses New Schubert Finishing System For GRP and PVCu Products

 

 

From the company’s 70,000 sq ft factory in the north east of England, the WB Group fabricates and manufactures windows and doors in a large range of styles and finishes to suit every application.

 

WB Group was formed in 1981 and now has over 30 years experience in the manufacture and supply of PVCu windows and doors, GRP Composite Doors & PVCu door infill Panels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Schuberts have just installed a brand new custom built finishing system for WB Group.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The system consists of a clean room spray enclosure, flash-off section, Schubox curing zone, overhead conveyor and paint mix room.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The spray enclosure pre-filters the air prior to entering the room. The balanced air system means the fans ramp up and down, constantly adjusting their output to suit all the variables of spraying. Doors open/closed, filters new/clogged all impact on the air balance inside a spray booth.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A flash-off area allows the coatings to settle, flow and vent prior to the Schubox. Again filtered air input ensures the wet product is kept clean.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the flash-off, the Schubox gas catalytic IR drying system dries the 2k PU coatings in 30-40 minutes at just 36c with long wave infrared, air movement and reflection.

Kolorseal Go The Schubox Route

@Kolorseal Ltd, based in Dewsbury West Yorkshire, is the UK’s leading specialist provider of UPVC profiles, glass & metal colour coating, primarily servicing the Fenestration Industry. With over 20 years’ experience they pride themselves on the quality of their service which is backed with a 100% ‘no quibble’ guarantee of satisfaction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kolorseal have just commissioned a custom dimension Schubox catalytic IR drying system to eradicate the bottle-neck of drying and curing for both their water and solvent based coatings. The new Schubox replaces a hot air system previously installed. Not only is the Schubox far quicker with a better quality finish, the running costs lower, but the footprint is much smaller. Assembled product, full size GRP composite doors, PVC lengths and aluminium profiles are all put into the Schubox.

 

Live trials were carried out in the new Schubert Test Centre and based on these tests an order was placed. 8 weeks later Kolorseal are up and running in full production.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Schubox is fed with wet coated product from three large spray enclosures, so not only does the quality have to be kept high but the volumes are also significant too. Drying times are down from 8-10 hours to 30-40 minutes at just 30c!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Schubox technology uses intrinsically safe gas catalytic infrared to drive off the solvent or water based carriers, to leave a perfectly dried surface. Stainless steel, air recirculation, long-wave infra red and a low temperature of just 35-38c mean the system doesn’t alter the temperature sensitive nature of the Kolorseal production.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Debbie Hendry, MD at Kolorseal says “ Our old system worked for us, but was a lengthy process. The new Schubox speeds up our drying times immensely.  Schuberts were very helpful and knowledgeable. Their installation team were professional and punctual. I would definitely recommend!”

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.
