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 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.

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.

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.

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.
