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.”

Automotive and Intralogistics Customer Chooses Schuberts For Their New UK Factory

Founded in 1953, Jungheinrich ranks among the leading solutions providers for the intralogistics sector, with revenue of €3.8 billion and more than 18,000 employees worldwide. With a comprehensive portfolio of material handling equipment, automatic systems and services, the company is able to offer customers tailored solutions for the challenges posed by Industry 4.0 from a single source.

 

Schuberts were approached to design, manufacture and install a bespoke high-end finishing system to deal with solvent based coatings, but to future proof the system for water-based in the coming years.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The system comprises of 5 separate ‘cells’, side by side to give the best possible product flow and quality.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two of the cells are preparation dust booth enclosures, featuring full filtered air input, extraction and controlled air diffusion back into the factory zone.

 

Two of the cells are spray/dry enclosures, have modulating burners for spraying or drying, either full recirculation or full vent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The systems can run from ambient to 20c for spraying and up to 60c for drying and baking. Full interlocks are provided and automatic roller doors ensure the zones are kept sealed during each of the operations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A large paint mix room has permanent extraction, filtered air input, an ATEX heating system and a bunded floor to contain any spills.

 

This system boasts full HMI touch screens, full ATEX certification and the highest level of design, quality and manufacturing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Made in Britain at its best!

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.

Casket Manufacturer Goes For Schubox Curing. Again.

One of the most recognisable manufacturers of caskets in the UK and had their second Schubox drying system installed successfully.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Producing up to 600 coffins per week, they pride themselves on quality of manufacture and finish of the coatings.

 

Every product is made using the newest and most environmentally safe processes and with the volumes they produce, the older Schubox was saturated with work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The new Schubox, a custom build, features bi-fold doors, flameless gas catalytic IR emitters and a filtered air movement system to drive off the carrier of the coating in record time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Processing 8 coffins with just a 20 minute drying time will make a massive difference to the throughput and quality of the end product.
