Giardina Profile Spray Line Installed For Door Producer

A new Giardina profile automatic spray line has been installed at one of the UK’s largest producers of timber doors and door sets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The customer is providing high quality products ideally suited to the health, education, commercial, leisure, office fit out and high end residential markets.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Running at 30m/min, it can deal with waterbased or solvent based coatings in single pack and 2k for primers, mid-coats and top-coats.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With a denibbing brush sander offline, it will coat from 20mm to 300mm widths, even on the most complex door profiles.

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.

Giardina Profile Coating Line Installed At Timber Door Producer

A new Giardina profile finishing line has been installed by Schuberts at a well known timber and PVC fabricator.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The line consists of infeed conveyor, brush-sanding machine, profile spray machine, automatic stacking system and drying trolleys.

 

Timber, anything up to 300mm width x 4000mm length can be fed down the profile line by hand, thereafter it is fully automatic.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The multi-headed brush sanding machine is fitted with Flex-trim heads to give an optimal pre-sand and intercoat denibbing. All heads on the sanding machine can be angled, rpm altered and direction of rotation changed, all depending on the substrate and quality required.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Giardina profile spray machine features double fluid lines, filtered air input and extraction, collection tanks for overspray and 4 automatic spray guns. As the product passes into the spray machine, the piece is ‘read’ and the guns actuate on and off automatically, giving an even and regular coat of paint.

 

Once coated, the product is then transferred to the stacking system, where the wet profiles are taken and loaded into each arm of a drying rack. This is done fully automatically from top to bottom, with random length and width pieces being no issue for the stacker to deal with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The complete Giardina line runs at 30m/min and can process over 12,000 lineal metres of profiles per shift, single pass with just 2 operators and will pay for itself in 18 months.
