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 Re-Investing In The Future Of Finishing With Giardina Group

As part of the continual growth and advancement in the UK, Schuberts have yet again re-invested in the latest finishing technology. Schuberts are the ONLY manufacturer and supplier of finishing equipment in the UK with a production-spec Test Centre, Lab and Training Facility.

This month, we Schuberts the delivery and installation of the new Giardina Dualtech 420, fully automatic through-feed spray machine system. This machine is suitable for wood, metal, plastics, glass, composites and many other industries. It will accept 1k waterbased, 1k solvent based, 2k waterbased, 2k solvent based and lots of other sprayable coatings.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Capable of running up to 8m/min, it boasts multiple wet spray circuits, 8 Wagner GA400 guns, full self-cleaning paint recovery belt and a whole host of other features that set it aside from the normal competition. With inverter driven fans the system can be tailored to the customers exact requirements. Made ready for Industry 4.0, the Giardina machine is prepared for the future!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All Dualtech spray machines have in common is the top quality of key technical features, including two opposing painting arms and a large cabin which guarantees an optimal application on both the panel’s surface and edges.
Other noteworthy features are the technology to recover paint from the conveyor belt and the latter’s cleaning system, unequalled solutions in terms of extremely low washing solvent consumption, a longer belt service life and a very simple operation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All Dualtech machines can be fitted with accessories and technological solutions to further increase their flexibility, productivity and reliability. This includes the “Dualfast”, the system that allows you to change guns – and hence the spraying circuit – in less than 60 seconds, thereby maintaining optimal working conditions; the option of the PLC controlled vertical positioning system of the guns also guarantees excellent painting cycle repeatability; the electronic control for the ventilation inside the spray chamber which is required for extending the efficiency and operating time of the spray machine. All versions are available with a “Dry” or “Wet” solid particulate disposal system.

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.

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.

New And Old At Virtuoso

Schuberts have just installed a turn-key Giardina autospray line at Virtuoso Doors as well as their older manual finishing system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The philosophy of the new line was borne out of extensive testing and trials at our Sheffield Test Centre and proved to the customer there was only one solution that would work.

 

A cantilevered loading table at the start of the line starts the process, followed by infeed conveyor and then mechanical brushing with the brilliant flex-trim systems. The brushing machine has oscillation, speed, direction and height controls as well as a vacuum bed. This ensures the best surface preparation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After brush sanding, there is an open section to allow application of prep-clean liquid before the cleaning and de-ionising process.

 

The spray machine 420 dry is fitted with 2 circuits and Wagner pumps and guns to give a consistent and even coverage of the coatings. This machine is processing full size doors as well as components.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed, the products enter a flash-off tunnel, with incoming air is filtered, the air warmed to 30c and the paint vapours extracted to atmosphere.

 

After the flash-off, the products go through a jetted air tunnel at 45-50c for drying.

 

This new Giardina line from Schuberts goes hand in hand with the original manual system consisting of sprayshop enclosure with full autobalance, flash-off, Schubox drying system and paint mixing room.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Door Manufacturer Trusts In Schuberts

A well-known UK door manufacturer has just invested in a custom-built manual finishing system from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Full manual spray enclosure, filtered air input and extraction system with clean-booth auto-balance technology.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The curing of the gloss coatings is carried on in the Schubox, gas catalytic infrared technology, with coatings cured in 40 mins at 38c, ready for working after coming out.
