The start-up of automatic plant for painting profiles in Lodi (Italy).

The start-up of automatic plant for painting profiles in Lodi (Italy).

In August 2017, we completed the process of the gradual modernization of the pretreatment and powder coating plant of aluminum profiles for “LOAS” Srl – our “old” customer in Lodi (Italy).
Gradual upgrade is the best solution for companies who are required to carry out works without stopping the production process (or with minimal stop). Such rule is especially applicable to companies offering painting services as “LOAS” Srl.
In this project work was carried out in 2 steps:
1st step:
In 2016, we have automated the pretreatment in the baths through the installation of automatic bridge crane and modern, automatic equipment for wastewater treatment with capacity of 4 m3/h.
2nd step:
In August 2017, we have replaced the old painting plant (1994) n good condition but with insufficient productivity for a fully automatic plant for painting 7-meter profiles and sheets.
The new plant consists of:
Automatic painting booth with quick color change (Gema), equipped with vertical reciprocators, mobile horizontal bases for reciprocators, systems for reading pieces sizes, automatic guns.
Oven polymerization.
Automatic overhead double-rail conveyor (“P&F”)

Useful height: 2200 mm.
Working speed: 2 m/min.

All work since the disassembly of the old plant and start-up of the new plant was completed in August. Work completed in time allowed our customer at the end of the August vacation immediately resume the workflow.
