Bürkle systems have proven successful in the field of high-quality surface finishing for many years. The high degree of flexibility of the Bürkle finishing systems and the tried and tested roller coating and curtain coating machines facilitate numerous applications: UV base coats and top coats, water-based finishing systems, solvent or water-based staining products as well as oils and waxes can be processed a completely newly developed spray coating model range.
From the very outset, the two spray coating series ROBUSpro and ROBUSeco have been integrated into the Bürkle Group’s outstanding system expertise. Depending on the requirements, they can be enhanced with drying tunnels, UV units and fully-automatic loading and unloading systems. Optimum coating systems are therefore created from a single source.
With its roller coating machine series, Bürkle has accumulated know-how over many years in the area of surface coating. Their tried-and-tested key features – precision engineering, reliability, ease of operation and ease of maintenance – were integrated into the specifications for the extension to the range.
The scope, contents and areas of application of the new Bürkle modular system for spray coating are remarkable. The product range comprises various types of machines and equipment packages, tailored to the needs of the particular user. It is based on renowned and proven Bürkle technology.
Easy access to filter changing
Worthy of note is the easy-maintenance access to all control and supply units, as well as to the components that need maintenance. Completely new developments are also included in the spray coating series. All filter units are fitted with a quick-change system. Five filter levels result in perfect air purification and ideal air quality in the spray booth and ensure high quality results. Another guarantee of quality is the air routing system in the booth, newly developed by ventilation and airflow experts.
The Bürkle development team placed particular importance on the paint recovery unit and the belt cleaning system. The new spray coating machines are suitable for all types of paint. The current working width is 1300mm, and additional widths are in the planning phase or can be implemented on a customer-specific basis.
To prevent the rear side from becoming stained, the conveyor belt has a particularly wide design. Up to six plus six spray guns can be used for applying the paint. Four out/three in paint circulation systems are possible as standard. If additional colours are to be used integrated colour mixing systems are available.
“Despite this wide range of equipment, the new modular spray coating system has even more to offer. A post-filtering unit, a single-direction conveyor belt system, smaller graduation of the intake scanner strip and other features tailored to the various market requirements are also available,” explains Liam Whelan, managing director of Bürkle’s UK and Ireland’s distributor, Membrane Pressing Services. “The new machines have been designed to be reliable, high quality, user-friendly and easy to maintain.”
