This company is keeping up with the need for quick color change by designing powder-coating systems that change colors in fewer than 10 minutes for recyclable systems. For spray-to-waste systems, the color change time is under two minutes and its enhanced color-on-demand manifold system switches from one color to the next in just seconds.
A new generation of true, closed-loop control systems allow customers to change the flow rate and voltage for any given part at any given time. Up to 255 recipes can be stored on a flash card, which can be easily accessed and edited by the operator through a user-friendly graphic system.
Also, new HDLV (High-Density powder Low-Velocity air) powder transport and powder dispensing technology is available to the powder coatings industry. HDLV provides higher first-pass transfer efficiency resulting in less overspray and greater powder savings. With HDLV technology you can coat faster at high line speeds with higher powder output, achieve softer spray at the gun tip providing better coverage in cavities and corners, and lower compressed air usage compared to conventional venturi pumps.
