New 420 Automatic Spray Machine Launched

Schuberts presents the Giardina “Dualtech 420”, the first stage of the renovation process that will affect the entire range of “Dualtech” automatic through-fee spraying machines, a technology that represents fifty years of experience in spray painting in the name of quality, reliability, flexibility and ease of use.


Among the most interesting technical features the two opposing painting arms that guarantee an optimal application both on the surface and on the edges of the panel and the technology for the recovery of the paint that falls on the conveyor belt and the cleaning system of the latter, solutions that have no equal in terms of very low consumption of the cleaning solvent, a longer life of the belt, and a high simplicity of operation.


Each machine in the “Dualtech” range can be equipped with accessories and technological solutions to further increase flexibility, productivity, and reliability, such as the quick gun exchange system “Dualfast”, which allows you to change guns – and consequently the spraying cycle – in less than 60 seconds or the automatic vertical positioning system of the guns, or the electronic control of the ventilation inside the spray chamber, perfect for extending the efficiency and operating time of the sprayer.

Glass Coater Goes Schubert Route

Not all our installations are large or high-value ones….

Here we have a modest manual installation for a glass coater.

The equipment comprises of a manual spray shop enclosure and a retro-fitted Kit-Cat drying system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed in their waterbased coatings, the glass is put into the drying zone, fitted with gas catalytic infrared. This means the drying time is vastly reduced, the coating is properly dried and the ‘open time’ for dust and contamination is down to 20 mins.

New Giardina Glass Roller Coating Finishing Line Installed

One of the UK’s largest glass processing companies has taken delivery of a custom built Giardina Group glass rollercoating finishing line.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The line, with a fantastic working width of  anywhere between 700mm and 2200mm, is designed for a full colour range of ceramic coatings.

 

The line consists of end AND side infeed roller conveyor, with pop up rollers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roller coating machine G02, mounted on floor rails and wheels for easy removal out of the line. It also has rollers top and bottom (not belts) to ensure perfect application thickness of coatings. There is also the self cleaning washing equipment for quick colour changing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roller conveyor with lexan hinged hood for flash-off and inspection of coating before the drying tunnel.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Drying and cooling sections with electric IR, recirculated air and venting water vapour to atmosphere. Again, with hinged sections to access the internals of the tunnels.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Out feed roller section and then finally an automatic lift station to take the coated glass into the vertical position.

Another Glass Processing Company Go Schubox Route

Another successful installation completed.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This time in NI for a well-established and lovely architectural glass processing company.

Custom made Schubox CIR drying system for their range of solvent and waterbased coatings from a manual spray booth. Reducing drying times and that finishing bottleneck from tens of hours to 45-90 mins.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Schuberts Install a New Giardina Automatic Glass Spray System at Esquire Glass

Founded in 1970 Esquire Glass has become one of the UK’s leading independent glass processors.

Their core business is in the production of processed glass panels for the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom industry. However, since 2002 substantial investment in a second factory and ‘state of the art’ glass processing plant has led to the company’s accelerated growth into new markets.

Their newest investment has been on a cutting edge finishing system from Giardina Group and their UK partners, Schuberts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Running with waterbased coatings, the new Giardina system is capable of using both solid and far more difficult metallic colours. Fitted with 2 independent spray circuits, the switch between colours and coatings is very quick, meaning the customer can do both long and short runs of glass. All of the Wagner guns have the ability to run different tips and pressures, making the coating control very accurate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Dualtech 416 machine has full belt overspray recovery system, meaning wasted coating can be safely removed from the main belt, filtered and re-introduced into virgin mixes. The recovery system, unlike other systems relies on a series of rubber squeegees that gently, but effectively removes paint, rather than harsh metal blades that scrape and damage the belt over time. This guarantees the longevity of the Giardina belt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The machine also boasts double filtration for the air input system, making the spray zone a clean zone, meaning reworks are a thing of the past.

On the extraction side, there are triple levels of filtration, ensuring incredibly low particulate emissions to atmosphere.

The touchscreen control panel gives the operators fine control over line speed, spray guns, circuits, pressures, gun heights and many other key parameters used for coating – all at the touch of a finger!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once sprayed, the glass goes through a flash-off section and then on to a combination drying oven. The glass comes off the end of the line perfectly coated, dry and ready to handle and with a footprint of just 14m from end to end, it really is a compact, high production finishing system.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Paul Lockett, MD at Esquire says:-

“ Realising we (Esquire Glass) needed to be more flexible in the painting of our glass products, we spent last summer conducting due diligence on various systems. We found the Giardina system in collaboration with Schuberts UK to be the most effective for our needs. It was installed at the end of Jan ’18 and has already shown huge benefit by taking our production from 400 to 1600 pieces per shift. So far, we are very happy with the machine and are looking forward to developing it’s use over the coming year”
