Changing from one powder color to another is easier and faster using ITW Gema’s OptiColor, newly designed for shops using a manual spray operation that usea multiple hoppers set up to spray various colors. According to the manufacturer, the OptiColor allows the user to conduct all normal spraying operations, as well as do fast, simple spray gun color changes from a single location. Working in conjunction with the OptiFlex series manual spray gun, color changes are reported to be performed in a matter of seconds. The system offers multiple color capabilities, and risk free contamination all in a simple, user-friendly package.

The OptiColor allows production spraying to continue while a hopper color change is being performed. Fast color changes maximize production, throughput, and flexibility. The OptiColor is located at the operator, giving easy access for application adjustments and color change selection.

A complement to ITW Gema's OptiFlex series manual spray guns, the OptiColor is available in 4- and 8-color units, which can be combined to accommodate an endless variety of colors.
