MDF Producer installs Giardina Spray Line and Schubox Drying System

With over 100 different profile sections to deal with, a new coating and drying system has been installed by Schuberts to keep up with a massive increase in high quality painted MDF and timber. From 20mm to 300mm widths and up to 4600mm long, the new system will deal with it all.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new system comprises of a brush sanding machine, connected to a Giardina profile spray machine, all running at 35m/min. The 1VE spray machine in fitted with Wagner spray equipment and will do a full colour change in around 5 minutes and is able to deal with 1k or 2k coatings. 1k coatings can be recovered, filtered and blended back into virgin paint.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sanded, the profiles are then coated with waterbased 1k paint, taken off and loaded onto trolleys.

The trolleys are then placed into a custom dimension Schubox for rapid and safe curing of the coatings at 30-34c. Drying the paint at low temperature and quickly with the gas catalytic IR technology means no fibre raise, no damage to the coating and no movement in the MDF or timber.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new system doubles production rates, dries coatings in a quarter of the time it used to and gives a much higher end quality.

New Giardina Multilevel Vertical Dryer For Profiles Installed

A new Giardina Finishing custom-made high speed vertical oven has been installed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The system is designed for high quality exterior coatings on solid wooden profiles, up to 6500mm long x 300mm wide.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the infeed of this multi-level cross transfer, a stacking machine creates a ‘batch’ of pieces (1250mm wide) on each level, one at a time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 10 levels of fully motorised chains, move the batches along the oven.

 

At the end of the oven, after the drying cycle, another stacking machine collects up one batch at a time and deposits it on the unloading level (11th); here, another group of motorised chains and belts singularize the pieces on a outfeed roller conveyor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This oven gives a 50 minutes drying time at a speed of 11 pieces per minute (70m/min lineal line speed!), thanks to the 100 metre long transfer chains.

 

The complete system, shown in the pictures, has been installed on a roof/terrace to save space inside the main factory and has its own air handling/heating system.
