UK Audio Manufacturer Chooses Schubox Over Other Technologies

A unique British company whose total preoccupation, since it was formed in 1974, has been with quality. Since its inception, they have kept steadfastly to its founders aims of building loudspeakers and audio electronics, which employ the most effective of modern engineering principles.

That has meant far more than keeping up with or even ahead of the competition. It has meant striving to make loudspeakers as near perfection in their performance as it is possible to make them.

All of their products are built to provide nothing less than the best sound reproduction money can buy and to meet the challenge of the latest digital recording technology.

Part of that quality is the finishing of their products. The feel, look and longevity of the finish is key. This is why the customer has invested in technology from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Schubox gas catalytic infrared (CIR) drying system was installed to rapidly cure all wet coatings sprayed on, in a proper spray booth system.

 

Once applied, the Elmbridge products are flashed-off correctly for 10-15 mins and then introduced into the Schubox at 35-40c for between 30-45 mins, depending on type of coating and film thickness sprayed.

 

After the correct time in the Schubox, the peices are removed and sanded OR if top-coated are sent to fitting up, testing and despatch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another wonderful installation from Schuberts and one that has made a difference from day one of the commissioning for the client.

Bespoke Joinery Company Trust Schuberts For The Perfect Finish

RW have a dedicated in-house team of master craftsmen across two joinery workshops, and confidently deliver luxurious one-off pieces to an impeccable standard. Indeed, this precise level of finish is what so often influences their clients’ decision to work with them. With everything custom built, their dedicated joiners cater to requests ranging from custom kitchens, libraries and dressing rooms, to curved work, paneling, exquisite veneers, inlaying and polishing.

This capability is no longer commonplace in the industry and allows RW to maintain excellent standards of workmanship.

Complementing their joinery shops, for requests outside our usual productions, they have developed longstanding relationships with skilled subcontractors that equally work to their rigorous standards.

Adding to the very high levels of workmanship, they have just taken delivery of a custom-spec finishing shop from Schuberts.

 

Every single element of this new system was specifically designed and built for this site and the customers strict requirements, with tolerances and specification to make your eyes water!

GB Projects Invests In A New Finishing System

GB Projects trusted Schuberts with a new, custom-built finishing system for both solvent and waterbased coatings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new system comprises of both manual spray and automatic spray applications, feeding into a flash-off section and then finally into a Schubox CIR gas catalytic infrared drying system.

Product arrives at the finishing shop from manufacturing either in panel or carcass form. For long finishing runs such as priming, they use an automatic spray machine. When top coats or carcass work needs coating they use the manual spray shop enclosure.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Both the auto machine and manual spray shop both feed into a large flash-off room. The former through a slot in the side of the flash-off and the latter through double sliding product doors.

The flash-off is fitted with low level balanced extraction with adjustable louvers, through an atex fan, into ducting and finally into the Schubox.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once flashed-off for between 10-15 mins, either the finger trolleys or carts are wheeled into the Schubox for rapid curing. For solvent coatings, this takes 20 mins and for water based coatings 25-30 mins. The system will accept multiple racks, with a mixture of coatings, film weights and substrates at any one time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Director of GB, Eddy Burrows says; “Schuberts went above and beyond to provide us with a system that fitted perfectly. It’s rare to find a company that will not just supply the bare minimum but also go the extra mile and Schuberts do exactly that. Their team provided a brilliant service from start to finish.”

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.

New Giardina Auto-Spray Line Installed For A Very Special Use

One of the worlds largest manufacturers of engineered sealing solutions has taken delivery of a custom width Giardina coating line from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Built to a working width of 1500mm, this line sprays a very accurate layer of product, recovers all the overspray, to be filtered and used again and then dried inside an inline drying tunnel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The automatic belt cleaning system on the spray machine means that all overspray is recovered. It then passes through filters and back into a constant mixing stainless steel tank, before being dosed back into the machine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The automatic guns are positioned inline and fitted with very accurate nozzles and the machine has the ability to control flow, pressure and therefore build-up of coating.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed, the product goes into a high speed jetted air oven, connected to in-line waterheaters and heat exchanges so the oven can run at a steady 70-80c irrespective of the factory temperature.

 

Running at 6m/min, this really is a special fully automatic Giardina spray line supplied by Schuberts!
