GLASS tool simulates CO2 and costs for automotive series painting
The GLASS tool for simulating CO2 and costs in automotive series painting provides a holistic analysis method for the paint store. The analysis tool helps to reduce the ecological footprint through transparency.
Innovative coating prevents limescale deposits
Researchers have developed a new coating based on a hydrogel that effectively prevents the adhesion of limescale. Limescale crystals cannot adhere to this surface and are carried away by the surrounding water flow.
Efficient powder coating of geometrically complex components
A manufacturer installed a new coating system in order to be able to coat even complex components efficiently and automatically in all colors with powder coating. This increased production speed and minimized powder consumption.
Painting system conveyor technology for large agricultural machinery parts
New conveyor technology for a painting system for combined powder and wet paint coating at an agricultural machinery manufacturer: The new system can automatically transport large parts in the coating system.
Correct filter selection in industrial parts cleaning
In industrial parts cleaning, the right choice of filter for the filtration unit is often neglected. Wrongly so, because the right filtration offers considerable savings potential for cleaning systems.
Modular systems for efficient, sustainable component cleaning
A cleaning system manufacturer is focusing on a broader and more modularized product range in order to meet the increased demands for efficient, innovative and sustainable industrial component cleaning.
