Reduced Change Over Times = Reduced Costs

Sprimag Spritzmaschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG is presenting at this year's K2010 in Düsseldorf, new approaches for rubber to metal bonding applications.

For many years Sprimag has produced proven manufacturing machines to apply adhesive layers to metal parts. These parts are then bonded with rubber to create rubber to metal vibration absorbers. This technology is now facing added requirements.

While insisting on using the normal proven process used in high quantity production runs, manufacturers are striving for new efficiencies. Today’s market requires smaller production runs, with less set up, change over and down time, all the while improving process adjustments and reducing overspray to improve quality. Our approach is to combine a compact coating robot; automatic cleaning brush and Sprimag spray equipment, into a Round-Table Machine.

The solution includes using the newly developed Sprimag S-7 spray gun with quick release coupling. No time is spent readjusting the spraying position because the spray gun body quickly and easily releases from the base for cleaning or replacement without changing its position. Incorporating the robot also reproduces spraying positions instantly while limiting overspray issues. Additionally the robot will present the gun assembly to the technician in a convenient position for service.

These technology improvements result in very user friendly machines. Non-productive time is considerably reduced while quality is increased. With readjustment no longer necessary the improved efficiency in turn lowers manufacturing costs and ultimately each component costs less.

At the K Show 2010, Sprimag informs about these and further new approaches in the coating section. The Trade Fair K takes place from 27th October to 3rd November 2010 in Düsseldorf, Germany. Sprimag presents a small paint robot in motion at the booth in Hall 4, Stand A15.
