New 40m/min (!) Window Component Finishing Line Commissioned at one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of windows.
Schuberts have just installed and commissioned a radical new type of finishing line to produce between 1600 and 2000 window components per shift.
The customer employs approximately 20,000 people worldwide and has manufacturing and distribution locations across the United States and in more than 20 countries, including multiple sites in the UK.
In the UK, the customer has approximately 1200 staff that produce and distribute quality doors, windows, patio doors and stairs. The new Schubert paint finishing system is a first in the UK.
The new high speed line incorporates a totally new way of thinking for the window industry; each individual window component is painted in water based white primer in 2 passes at a line speed of 40m/min, all around the product. Key areas such as joints, end grain and complex grooves have special attention.
The FPC spray machine is a specially designed unit with a full overspray recovery system for waterbased paints and random loading abilities. All of this at a speed totally unknown for the window industry.
The paint finishing line has the ability to accept random length, height and width product either in batches or single individual pieces. This new approach gives the line complete flexibility with zero set-up time between products.
The coatings are cured within 10 mins, which again is very quick for external waterbased paints, with WindJet hot air modules and laminar air movement.
Once coated, the window components are assembled and then top coat paint is applied on an overhead conveyor system.
Schubert supply a full range of paint finishing systems for joinery, wood, plastic and metal industries, including automatic spray machines.
