Out With The Old And In With The New In Toronto

If you want to offer a full range of career-focused education, training and applied research programs to prepare people for success in the new knowledge economy and promote economic prosperity throughout Canada, you want the very best equipment, right?

 

An old installation was well past its prime, so Yorke Towne, our working partners in Canada were key in making the new finishing installation from Schuberts an outstanding one.

 

So, out with the old:-

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And in with the new, custom built, flash-off and Schubox gas catalytic infrared drying system:-

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After spraying, the products go into the flash-off zone and then into the Schubox for rapid and safe drying.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not only are our systems CSA certified, but we also carry INTERTEK and TSSA classification for the Canadian markets.

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!

Canadian Manufacturer Takes Delivery Of A New Finishing System From Schuberts

A new Schubert installation has been made, with our partners at Yorke Towne, at one of Canada’s premier residential and commercial manufacturing companies, supplying their customers for over 20 years.

 

The installation comprises of a fully custom built flash-off and Schubox drying system, connected to a manual spray shop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed, the product is taken into the flash-off zone to settle and vent. The flash-off air is taken into the Schubox for oxidisation of VOC’s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After flash-off, the Schubox is next. Working at just 40c, it pulls the solvent carriers out and cross-links the coating in record time. After 30 mins in the Schubox, the coatings are perfectly dry and ready for either denibbing or fitting up after topcoat.

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.

The bespoke wooden window manufacturer is using high quality waterbased coatings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spray shop enclosure with filtered air input system, flash-off, Schubox drying system, overhead conveyor and hydrostat controlled humidification system for the whole area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Quality, throughput and process control all more than tripled with the new system.

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.
