Cardinal have just taken delivery of a state-of-the-art Schubert finishing system for all of their joinery production.
The Cardinal Group has over 30 years experience in Designing, manufacturing and installing retail and commercial interiors in the UK and globally. The group operates from approximately 500,000 square feet of production and logistics space. Cardinal provide a complete turnkey solution incorporating product design, space planning, manufacture, logistics, installation and project management.
Along with extensive manufacturing ability in the UK, Cardinal ltd also offer cost efficiencies via their China company and global supply chain.
The new Schuberts system combines a fully enclosed 10m wide x 7m deep spray shop, filtered air input, adjustable divider panels and fully ATEX rated motors/fans etc for both solvent and water based range of coatings.
A new control system on the spray shop means that all fans on the input side and extract side are inverter driven, ramp up and down automatically and maintain a perfectly clean spray zone, without any solvent vapour escaping into the factory.
Custom fans and ducting was required due to roof heights, extended ducting lengths and the fact that the flap cowls had to finish some 5.5m above roof ridge height (!). Pulleys and belts were changed on the drives, ducting was flanged and increased to 810mm dia, oversized guy wires, extra strengthening to the roof was done – all to deal with the extra weights and loads of the ducting.
The spray shop is illuminated with both roof and wall skywhite blue/white lighting sets. This gives a pure, flicker-free light, essential for colour matching and for the sprayer to spot imperfections inside the paint that can derive from the mixing process on 2k systems.
The Schubox drying system is manufactured to custom dimensions, specified by the client. 3850mm wide x 5480mm long, fitted with three flameless catalytic gas heaters. Drying time inside the Schubox is between 20 mins for high solids AC and one hour for high build 2k PU.
A separate paint mix room was installed for the safe intermediate storage, weighing and mixing of coatings. A bunded floor catches all spills and twin doors allow easy access through into the spray shop directly.
