Schuberts Turn-Key Door Finishing System Delivered

A new complete finishing system has been delivered to a UK manufacturer of doors and components.

 

The new system from Schuberts comprises of through-feed brushing de-nibbing machine, spray shop enclosure, flash-off section, Schubox drying system, paint mix room and overhead conveyor with structural steelwork supports.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The de-nibbing brushing machine is designed for the prep of doors and components. Fitted with the Flex-trim brushing system, the machine can take anything up to 1300mm width and 100mm thick. The machine is adjustable in forward speed, angle of attack, pressure applied and rotation speed to give the very best finish.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The spray shop is an auto-balanc system with inverter drives on the input and extract fans, via a pressure transducer system. This means the air inside will self balance at the same time as extracting at 1m/s velocity, irrespective of the condition of the filters. Once the filters are clogged, the HMI tells the operators to change them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed, the wet products go into the clean flash-off section to flow out and vent, before going into the Schubox gas catalytic infrared drying system to cure.

The Schubox is able to run from 35c-50c depending on the coatings used and dries in record time. In this case 30-40mins each coat.

An overhead track, hangers, steelwork complete the system.

Door Manufacturer Dries In Record Time With Schubox

One of the UK’s best known manufacturers of doors has just installed a custom Schubox drying system for their solvent 2K PU range of coatings. With end entry and side exit, it fits perfectly with the product flow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Schubox is fitted with four gas catalytic infrared emitters and certified for solvent use (ATEX).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Running at just 36c, the Schubox cures the 150 micron wet coatings in 40 mins, after a flash-off period of just 5 mins.

When full, the Schubox holds 50 doors at any one time, increasing the production rates and reducing the bottleneck of drying.

New And Old At Virtuoso

Schuberts have just installed a turn-key Giardina autospray line at Virtuoso Doors as well as their older manual finishing system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The philosophy of the new line was borne out of extensive testing and trials at our Sheffield Test Centre and proved to the customer there was only one solution that would work.

 

A cantilevered loading table at the start of the line starts the process, followed by infeed conveyor and then mechanical brushing with the brilliant flex-trim systems. The brushing machine has oscillation, speed, direction and height controls as well as a vacuum bed. This ensures the best surface preparation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After brush sanding, there is an open section to allow application of prep-clean liquid before the cleaning and de-ionising process.

 

The spray machine 420 dry is fitted with 2 circuits and Wagner pumps and guns to give a consistent and even coverage of the coatings. This machine is processing full size doors as well as components.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed, the products enter a flash-off tunnel, with incoming air is filtered, the air warmed to 30c and the paint vapours extracted to atmosphere.

 

After the flash-off, the products go through a jetted air tunnel at 45-50c for drying.

 

This new Giardina line from Schuberts goes hand in hand with the original manual system consisting of sprayshop enclosure with full autobalance, flash-off, Schubox drying system and paint mixing room.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Door Manufacturer Trusts In Schuberts

A well-known UK door manufacturer has just invested in a custom-built manual finishing system from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Full manual spray enclosure, filtered air input and extraction system with clean-booth auto-balance technology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The curing of the gloss coatings is carried on in the Schubox, gas catalytic infrared technology, with coatings cured in 40 mins at 38c, ready for working after coming out.

New 420 Automatic Spray Machine Launched

Schuberts presents the Giardina “Dualtech 420”, the first stage of the renovation process that will affect the entire range of “Dualtech” automatic through-fee spraying machines, a technology that represents fifty years of experience in spray painting in the name of quality, reliability, flexibility and ease of use.


Among the most interesting technical features the two opposing painting arms that guarantee an optimal application both on the surface and on the edges of the panel and the technology for the recovery of the paint that falls on the conveyor belt and the cleaning system of the latter, solutions that have no equal in terms of very low consumption of the cleaning solvent, a longer life of the belt, and a high simplicity of operation.


Each machine in the “Dualtech” range can be equipped with accessories and technological solutions to further increase flexibility, productivity, and reliability, such as the quick gun exchange system “Dualfast”, which allows you to change guns – and consequently the spraying cycle – in less than 60 seconds or the automatic vertical positioning system of the guns, or the electronic control of the ventilation inside the spray chamber, perfect for extending the efficiency and operating time of the sprayer.

2nd Giardina Spray Line Installed At Door Manufacturer

Ever wondered what a Giardina Vertical Oven looks like and works?

The four-stage vertical oven designed and built by GiardinaGroup and available through Schuberts, optimally performs the four phases that characterize a perfect drying process: flash-off, first heating, second heating, and finally cooling.





 

The drying curve is guaranteed by the four stages in which the oven is structured, one for each phase, and each stage is separated from the other by dividing panels. In other two- or three-stage ovens, instead, some of the four phases are performed in the same spaces, therefore a homogeneous separation between them is not guaranteed and the zones are joined, mixing air and conditions inside – a less than ideal situation!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The version of four-stage vertical oven presented in the above video link, adopts a belt tray system, perfect for small pieces (there are no dangers related to their handling or dropping through) and for large and heavy elements which, being able to rest on a large and regular surface, do not risk any damage or marking to the contact surface already painted, with the tray system offered by others.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On request, it is possible to have the GiardinaGroup four-stage oven in an ideal set-up for those who have to process both thin pieces (flat doors) and high-thickness ones (curved doors): by reducing the number of trays the problem is solved, keeping the duration in each phase and for each product, whatever its thickness, constant and homogeneous.

UK Timber Door Manufacturer Goes the Schubox Route

One of the UK’s market leading supplier of wooden doors and associated products has just installed a new finishing system from Schuberts.

Their brand name can be found in the most prestigious names in the Builders Merchants and Retail sectors across the UK with in excess of 400,000 internal and external doors sold per year.

 

The new system comprises of two custom dimension centrifugal spec spray booths with canopies, lighting and custom duct work, plus a new custom Schubox gas catalytic infra red drying system. The input air is pre-filtered through capture and hold filters in the spray shop sliding doors.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The doors are pre-sanded, base-coated in the spray booths, dried in the Schubox, then denibbed, top-coated and back into the Schubox one final time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Typical Schubox drying times with their high-build waterbased coatings are just 30 minutes at 35c, cutting previous drying times down from 3-4 hours per coat!
