We have developed an innovative IMC (in mould coating) paint system. With this system, we can spray paint directly in the tool. The part comes out finished and ready to be delivered.
Innovative Paint System
An innovative paint system has been developed by researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute. The paint system is intended to reduce aerodynamic drag on aircraft, and resembles shark scales, which have evolved to minimize drag. To achieve its aerodynamic effect, the paint must withstand extreme aviation conditions. The researchers of the Fraunhofer Institute have developed an innovative manufacturing technique and paint system to achieve these goals. They believe that their solution is the answer to a number of modern paint challenges.
In order to develop the system, the company analyzed its own paint processes and worked with suppliers to determine the most efficient way to produce high-quality products. This approach allowed the company to eliminate the bottleneck that traditionally occurs during painting, allowing it to be a valuable input in the entire manufacturing process. As a result, the innovative paint system received seven patents from Caterpillar. The innovation team also had to find a cost-effective solution for the manufacturing process.
The IPP is particularly useful for plastics, combination zones, and vehicle interiors. Its dimensions ensure optimum access to complex shapes. This innovative paint process is also compatible with high-voltage paint applications and minimal soiling. In addition, the IPP significantly reduces the time required for auxiliary process steps, which boosts plant capacity. This is a clear example of how IPP can improve the way car manufacturers manufacture. Its benefits include reduced production costs, energy savings, and improved surface quality.
The robot’s pre-installed paint system was designed to meet the requirements of general industries. It provides maximum reproducibility by eliminating deviations in the dosing of components. Furthermore, the system also has the advantage of eliminating the need for rails in many tracking applications. And, it offers the added advantage of being compact and easy to integrate into an existing painting booth. Moreover, the robot allows manual painting when the robot is not in use.
The introduction of an innovative car painting system will cost $1.5 million
An innovative paint system uses an infrared heater that heats the surface of the paint while allowing the water solvent to evaporate. It uses the least amount of electricity and is thus highly energy efficient. Its use also reduces CO2 emissions. The coating will be applied on hard-to-reach areas. If successful, the innovative paint system could significantly reduce energy consumption and improve the quality of the vehicle’s interior. In the long run, this process can help a company compete in the market.
The process of applying the paint is highly sophisticated and a combination of various technologies ensures its durability and reliability. It is so durable that it can be used as the outermost coating of an aircraft. Moreover, the paint doesn’t add weight and can be stripped away every five years without incurring any additional costs. Additionally, the paint can be applied to complex three-dimensional surfaces. It is so strong, in fact, that the plane is able to fly.
The innovative paint system eliminates the need for masking and ensures crisp edges without masking. It saves body shops considerable time and reduces energy costs. Currently, it is commercially available for two-tone car painting, but is soon to be expanded to other paint applications. The advantages are many. The cost savings alone can make the paint system a good choice. If you’re considering purchasing an innovative paint system, look no further than Durr.
