Automatic Profile Spray Line, Stacker and Schubox CIR System Installed

New Giardina profile spray line and stacking machine installed at a leading UK door manufacturer.

 

The line consists of:-

– Infeed belt conveyor.

– 1VE profile spray machine, with 3 interchangeable catchment tanks with 3 sets of Wagner guns and pumps, to switch seamlessly between different coating types and film thicknesses to be applied.

– Intermediate belt conveyor.

– 4 arm auto-stacker onto trolleys.

– Schubox CIR drying system.

 

The line can run with a single operator and coat pieces from beading (30mm) up to window board (300mm) from 800mm long to 3600mm long.

 

Production speeds are 15m/min up to 40m/min.

 

 

Once the trolley is full of wet product, the trolley is disengaged from the line, the system goes into pause and the wet trolley is loaded into a Schubox CIR drying system. Another empty trolley is loaded onto the stacker and the line starts up again.

 

A truly flexible and labour saving system!

Canadian Customer Goes Double-Double-Vision

Vision Coatings Limited is the newest member of the Vision Group of Companies.

They provide advanced coating and finishing services for PVC and aluminium extrusion companies, window fabricators, and others in the fenestration industry. They offer a wide selection of colour choices and highly-durable finishing options, and can handle high-volume production orders.

Operating out of a brand new 50,000 sq. ft. facility in the Greater Toronto Area, they chose Schuberts and their Canadian partners, Yorke Towne as their chosen supplier for their new site.

Vision ordered a double length Schubox gas IR system, back in 2020. Such was the performance of the Schubox drying system, they ordered another system!

Dry cure times are now a remarkable 20 mins each cycle.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, a double-double Schubox!

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 Audio Manufacturer Chooses Schubox Over Other Technologies

A unique British company whose total preoccupation, since it was formed in 1974, has been with quality. Since its inception, they have kept steadfastly to its founders aims of building loudspeakers and audio electronics, which employ the most effective of modern engineering principles.

That has meant far more than keeping up with or even ahead of the competition. It has meant striving to make loudspeakers as near perfection in their performance as it is possible to make them.

All of their products are built to provide nothing less than the best sound reproduction money can buy and to meet the challenge of the latest digital recording technology.

Part of that quality is the finishing of their products. The feel, look and longevity of the finish is key. This is why the customer has invested in technology from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Schubox gas catalytic infrared (CIR) drying system was installed to rapidly cure all wet coatings sprayed on, in a proper spray booth system.

 

Once applied, the Elmbridge products are flashed-off correctly for 10-15 mins and then introduced into the Schubox at 35-40c for between 30-90mins, depending on type of coating and film thickness sprayed. This client uses 2k polyeurathane and 3k polyester systems.

 

After the correct time in the Schubox, the peices are removed and sanded OR if top-coated are sent to fitting up, testing and despatch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another wonderful installation from Schuberts and one that has made a difference from day one of the commissioning for the client.

Bespoke Joinery Company Trust Schuberts For The Perfect Finish

RW have a dedicated in-house team of master craftsmen across two joinery workshops, and confidently deliver luxurious one-off pieces to an impeccable standard. Indeed, this precise level of finish is what so often influences their clients’ decision to work with them. With everything custom built, their dedicated joiners cater to requests ranging from custom kitchens, libraries and dressing rooms, to curved work, paneling, exquisite veneers, inlaying and polishing.

This capability is no longer commonplace in the industry and allows RW to maintain excellent standards of workmanship.

Complementing their joinery shops, for requests outside our usual productions, they have developed longstanding relationships with skilled subcontractors that equally work to their rigorous standards.

Adding to the very high levels of workmanship, they have just taken delivery of a custom-spec finishing shop from Schuberts.

 

Every single element of this new system was specifically designed and built for this site and the customers strict requirements, with tolerances and specification to make your eyes water!

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.”
