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.

Canadian Manufacturer Goes With A Custom Schubox

With over 10,000 employees in 40 countries this client is part of one of the largest groups of businesses involved in the plastics sector.

 

Their vinyl and metal manufacturing processes are state-of-the-art, employing high-tech cutting, punching, painting and Schubox drying  and curing machinery. The fully-automated insulating glass line applies the dual-seal warm-edge foam Edgetech Super Spacer system. Superior quality dual-glazed LowE (emissivity) glass filled with argon gas in the airspace provides the utmost in energy efficiency. It blocks UV rays, decreases condensation, and reduces heat loss while minimizing outside noise infiltration.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Schubox gas catalytic infra red drying system is a custom build to satisfy not only their throughput, but also their dimensions. With record drying times, at low temperatures, the Schubox has become an instant success.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The profiles are either hand sprayed or get processed through an automatic spray line, loaded onto trolleys and then straight into the Schubox system for rapid curing.

Component Flow Coating Line For Joinery

New flow-coating profile line for waterbased preservatives has been installed at a UK joinery manufacturer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This profile coating line is capable of processing beading all the way through to large timber sections. The waterbased coating is applied through a series of directional low pressure nozzles. Any over spray is collected, filtered and put back into the system, so there is zero liquid wasted in the system. All the internals of the machine are moplan and teflon coated.

All of the parameters can be controlled on the HMI screen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once coated, the timber is subjected to a series of adjustable air jets that blow the excess coating off but leaves the timber damp. This is key to allow the preservative to soak into the timber for 10 minutes after application.

 

The timber is removed from the end of the line, placed on drying racks and dried properly using gas catalytic infra red technology.

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.
