Smaller flatline finishing?4/30
We are looking for ways to lean up and increase the capacity of our spray booth without adding a lot more people.
So in other words, maybe adding in automation (flatline spraying) with forced curing.
We produce, currently, 70- 80 parts per day as a general maximum (3 coats conversion varnish, with 2 team members, average size doors, 10 hour shift, spraying AAA).
The largest item we are likely to send through would be 30" wide, and the longest would be 12 to 14' mouldings.
I'm quite impressed with the quality and efficiency of my team, but we are getting to where increasing potential maximum capacity to 150 to 200 parts per day would be beneficial.
We probably are not even close to needing the capacity of the 300+ parts that I saw at the CEFLA booth in the Atlanta show.
We want to stick to spraying conversion varnish (Sherwin Williams), and will retain our spray booth for spraying large/complex items and small onesies/twosies.
What options are out there for smaller flatline options, which would include some sort of forced (heat) curing?
Do the parts come out ready to sand? Or do they come out "flashed off" still needing cure time before sanding?
