Dürr is adding another manual spray gun to its suite of application technology tools. The EcoGun AS MAN 1AF features a pressure-assisted, gravity-feed cup system that provides a fine spray pattern, even with highly viscous and thixotropic coating materials.

Atomization is key to obtaining a high-quality painting result, the company points out, and this new gun feeds compressed air to the pressurized cup at a rate of as much as 0.4 bar. A pressure-relief valve ensures that the pressure in the system does not exceed 0.4 bar, staying below the EU’s Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) limit of 0.5 bar.

The manual spray gun features a fast application speed and is well-suited for materials including solvent- and water-based paints, stains, glazes, lubricants, prim, and adhesives. The infinite adjustment of its wide and round spray adds to its versatility, and it also comes with a range of nozzle sizes.

Since neither a pump nor pressure vessel is required, the gravity-feed cup system is a cost-effective alternative to pressure-fed spray guns, the company says, and its optimized operating principle means that it consumes less coating media. Other benefits include low weight, an ergonomic handle and a fully nickel-plated surface that makes the gun easy to clean.

    Masking is employed in most any metal finishing operation where only a specifically defined area of the surface of a part must be exposed to a process. Conversely, masking may be employed on a surface where treatment is either not required or must be avoided. This article covers the many aspects of masking for metal finishing, including applications, methods and the various types of masking employed.
