New Giardina Full Spray Line Installed

A well-known UK  manufacturer of wooden and timber components has taken delivery of a custom Giardina spray and drying line from Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All of the production trials were carried out at the Schuberts Test Centre near Sheffield to define correct film weights, flash-off times, drying temperatures and energy required. The coating is a special knot-blocking, 100% waterbased coating, so drying was key to the process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Double, quick change circuits are fitted to the Giardina spray machine, with Wagner pumps and GA4000 auto guns, meaning rapid colour changes, flushes and consistent film weights applied.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The drying tunnel allows for adjustable flash-off length, controllable jetted air from a hot water feed and infra-red from 0% to 100%.

Powder Coating Gas Catalytic IR System Installed

A new Schuberts gas catalytic IR powder green-cure tunnel system has just been installed, replacing a make-shift electric IR system.

All manufactured in-house and installed by our skilled engineers in less than 5 days, commissioned and handed over to a fantastic customer after testing and training.


With full control over each individual emitter via the HMI touchscreen, the customer can control energy at specific points within the system, or indeed turn off individual emitters according to size of piece, speed of line or type of powder being used.

This customer can now gel their powder on a line, running their overall powder coating system much faster, at a fraction of the energy cost of other technologies.

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!

Overhead Conveyor System and Schubox Finishing System For Joinery Manufacturer

A leading UK joinery manufacturer has taken delivery of an overhead conveyor system and custom Schubox CIR drying system from Schuberts.

An open-fronted spray booth was relocated along the factory wall, with steel work supports and manual tracking system.

 

The products are loaded onto the conveyor, sprayed and then put into the Schubox gas catalytic infra red drying system for between 15 and 30 minutes to cure properly, before being denibbed and then back for spraying.

 

The Schubox is very much a custom spec, being ATEX rated, 4000mm long x over 4000mm high and offset bias door sets on either end.

The complete system was installed in 6 working days, speeds up the whole process, allows the joinery to be coated both sides in one pass, whilst making a significant labour saving.

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 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.
