Project description

The valves need a thick layer of epoxy powder coating, while they also require a transparent layer of polyester paint to ensure UV resistance. Until now, coating has been done separately: The epoxy layer was applied in the fluidised bed, then the paint was fired, and the polyester paint was applied in the coating booth. This manufacturing process takes a long time and requires manual handling of the product. We designed a new coating facility with an emphasis on automatic handling of the part and firing of epoxy and polyester paint in one step. The design of the coating facility was accompanied by simulations and tests of handling theproduct with a weight of 140 kg.
