R&E Falkingham Invest With Schuberts

R&E Falkingham are a UK manufacturer of high quality timber windows, doors and custom joinery work.

 

They engaged with Schuberts for a turn-key new finishing system. This involved a sanding booth, with clean air-return systems, a large manual spray booth and a Kit-Cat IR drying system, all integrated into an overhead track system.

The products are manufactured and sanded or de-nibbed in front of an ATEX booth, where the dust is filtered and pushed back into the room as clean air.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The spray booth is a full height, custom-fit unit, with hand-made transition ducting through the wall and out to atmosphere.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed the peices go into a Kit-Cat drying tunnel, where direct IR, reflected IR and air movement all combine to dry the coatings very quickly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All in all, a lovely installation!

UK Door Manufacturer Invests With Schuberts

Portico Doors are a leading manufacturer of Composite Doors, with a reputation for providing the highest quality of product.

Schuberts were the chosen partner for their brand new factory site, designing and supplying a turn-key finishing system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The installation comprises of a spray shop enclosure, with full auto-air balance system, pre-conditioning the supply air to ensure a clean working environment. An ajustable divider panel allows two sprayers to work within the zone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The flash-off chamber allows the coating to flow and settle out properly before drying.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A custom Schubox gas catalytic IR drying system, allows the coating to be dried very quickly, at low temperature, leaving less WIP and a through-dry product that can go directly to fit-up and then packing.

UK Timber Manufacturer Goes The Giardina Profile Finishing Route

A leading, high-end, manufacturer of the finest range of sash windows, casement windows and doors has just installed a new Giardina profile sanding and automatic spray line for their production and to add to the existing hanging spray shop, flash-off and Schubox system from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 4 head sanding machine is fully adjustable from beading to window board, fitted with Flex-Trim heads and brushes, meaning a perfect sand every time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The spray machine is fitted with 3 Wagner GA4000 guns and applies a perfect coat of waterbased coatings to each and every profile.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once taken off the line, the products are racked on trolleys and put inside the Schubox CIR system for a proper drying process at 38c for 45 mins.

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.”

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.
