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.

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 30-45 mins, depending on type of coating and film thickness sprayed.

 

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.

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.”
