UK Metal Fabrication Business Take Delivery Of New Spray System And Schubox

One of the UK’s most sought after manufacturers of staircases, balustrade, canopies, porches and verandas has just taken delivery of a custom built finishing system from Schuberts.

Drawing on traditional materials, practices and skills, paired with the latest technologies to create contemporary, traditional and restorative metalwork for a wide variety of commercial and private clients in the UK and worldwide.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The system comprises of a spray shop enclosure, with balanced air input and extract. Centrifugal, quiet running, fans provide filtered clean incoming air and extraction to atmosphere through double stage filters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Connected to the spray shop is a paint mix room with extraction and doors.

 

Once sprayed, all the iron metal parts are taken into a custom Schubox CIR drying for drying and curing. The Elmbridge coatings now take a fraction of the time to process and the overall finish and throughput has increased massively.

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.”

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.

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, joinery 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.

TFT USA Choose Schuberts As Their Finishing System Supplier

TFT, USA, based in Charlotte NC, have had a complete finishing system installed from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The system comprises of a custom built finishing line and cutting/sanding room. All to ATEX, UL and FM standards.

 

Designed for wood, PVC, fibreglass doors (GRP) and a whole host of other substrates, this is a truly flexible finishing system.

 

Products are either hung on the overhead track and suspended from above or taken inside on trolleys and sprayed on turn-tables.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The spray shop enclosure features full HMI control, automatic booth balancing system, filtered air input and benefits from local HARU, meaning the temperature and cleanliness of the spray shop is maintained at all times.

 

Once coated, the pieces are taken into the flash-off zone to flow out and vent prior to rapid curing in the Schubox catalytic IR drying system.

The Schubox, running at 38-45c pulls the carrier out of the coating very quickly, without affecting the substrates.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the Schubox, the pieces are either de-nibbed or ready for further processing.

 

A paint mix room has been installed for the intermediate storage of coatings, accurate mixing and colour matching.

 

The cutting/clean room is a separate installation for cutting, cleaning, wiping down and de-nibbing on Sandbox downdraft tables.

Composite Door Manufacture Installs Second Schubert Finishing System

The UK’s fastest growing and probably best-know producer of composite GRP doors has taken delivery of a second turn-key bespoke finishing system from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The line incorporates an overhead conveyor track, spray shop clean room with filtered air input and extract, flash-off zone and Schubox drying technology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once prepped and cleaned, the doors are hung onto the conveyor and moved into the spray shop for coating. Both the air input and extraction are inverter driven, giving a balanced air flow irrespective of the condition of the filters. The sensors fitted to the spray shop will even tell the operators when to change the filters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The flash-off section allows the coating to flow and settle before going into the catalytic IR zone for rapid drying in about 45 minutes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once dried, the products are taken off the line and moved into the rest of the factory production system.
