Eurotherm does it again in the UK together with PFS, Paint Finishing Systems Ltd which has been involved in the design and production of painting systems in England for over 25 years, to deliver the new automatic powder coating system to Broxap.
Broxap is a North Staffordshire company founded in 1946 and specialized in the design and production of street furniture in the city which in recent years has set itself a very specific objective: to drastically reduce the ecological footprint of its operations and improve the quality and safety of the working conditions of the operators.
The automatic powder coating system
The automatic powder coating system supplied by Eurotherm is equipped with a highly innovative pre-treatment area and with a dual-rail overhead conveyor which allows, through the ” power&free ” system, to manually load the pieces before they pass through the processing areas automatically.
The pre-treatment cycle includes 6 phases:
- 1st Hot phosphodegreasing
- 2nd Hot phosphodegreasing
- 1st rinse with mains water
- 2nd rinse with mains water
- Rinse with osmo water
The objectives of the new facility, the first of its kind in the United Kingdom
The automatic powder coating system supplied allows you to reduce waste , reduce environmental impact and double your powder coating capacity , ensuring fast turnaround times and a superior quality finish.
“ Maintaining high quality standards in products, while reducing the environmental impact of operations, is a great challenge for manufacturers. At Broxap we are committed to putting sustainability at the heart of our operations and the new automated powder coating system is one of the most significant investments we have made to reduce our ecological footprint. The system not only respects the environment, but improves the quality and safety of working conditions for our production teams, offers greater management flexibility and delivers excellent results to customers ,” said Matthew Miles, Managing Director of Broxap , at Daily Focus .
The customized finishing plant is in fact the latest phase of a huge transformation project for the company which has seen it undergo radical changes to support a more sustainable business. It is no coincidence that the system we supplied is the first system of its kind in the UK and was immediately seen as an example of how production processes can be improved with specialist technology.
