Whether you’re in the panel processing industry, door, window or stair market, produce flooring or interior fitting elements, Homag has the perfect solution for any business looking to completely transform their manual spraying process and step up into the world of automated painting and lacquering.
As one of the latest additions to Homag’s product portfolio, the GSF 100 range was specifically designed with both small- and medium-sized companies in mind. Equipped with a reciprocating arm and four spray guns, these machines feature a fully automated vacuum conveyor belt to transport workpieces for ultimate flexible, throughput efficiency. The GSF 100 can be used as both a stand-alone spray machine or as part of an extensive finishing line.
The Homag GSF 100 range offers automated painting and lacquering solutions for all workpieces
The integration of an automated paint application system ensures that a high quality finish is continuously achieved whilst reducing the amount of overspray waste, ultimately proving to be a true cost-saving investment for businesses. The cost efficiencies are also boosted via the GSF’s intelligent workpiece detection system. A high resolution light grid accurately identifies the contours of each part, precisely controlling the paint flow of the individual spray guns.
In the standard specification, the large machine filters are easily accessible and replaceable for the simplicity of cleaning and general maintenance. This feature reduces the effort required from the operators in terms of the upkeep of the machine. In addition to this, the introduction of automatic spraying within production significantly increases the working conditions for employees.
The GSF 100 can provide consistently high quality painting or lacquering for up to 2400 parts per shift therefore not only does it reduce paint exposure for operators but it also eases workload pressure produced when using a traditional manual paint applicator.
GSF 100 S – automated spraying with an added throughfeed alternative
The GSF 100 S has been specifically developed to offer the market an efficient alternative to manual spraying. Enhancing the automated spraying application process, this model has been purposely built to require low operating costs at an affordable investment level.
Equipped with a complete throughfeed transport belt, workpieces are effortlessly fed into the spray booth on individual trays. Once the spraying process is complete, the parts continue to be conveyed out of the machine to the end of the belt. Especially designed to transport even the smallest of parts, this model widens the opportunity of production possibilities.
GSF 100 SH – enhancing spraying technology with automated efficiencies
With the GSF 100 SH, Homag offers an automated workpiece handling concept for the loading and unloading of parts. Based on the standard GSF 100 range of features, the SH model is capable of one-man operation.
Using an innovatively designed infeed system, components are gently guided into the spray booth. Once the spraying process is complete the parts are then reloaded back on the workpiece loading trolley. This concept provides an easy flexible and reliable finishing solution that requires low personnel and due to its compact design, low production space.
The GSF 100 SH can be adapted and individually specified to meet the production demands of the manufacturer. Specific functions can be incorporated to the standard model to offer increased flexibility. Combining a two-way loading function provides uninterrupted operating cycles. Subsequently, this doubles the amount of workpieces within the machine, since one loading rack can be changed whilst the other batch is in operation.
Furthermore, the largest of production volumes can be achieved on the GSF 100 SH by doubling both the automated concepts of loading and unloading. The use of a two-way loading function at both sides of the machine delivers an almost self-sufficient concept, significantly increasing efficiency in production.
Success flows in automated finishing
The launch of the GSF 100 range at Ligna 2017, represented a real milestone in Homag’s history of finishing technology. Already proving to be a roaring success within the market, Homag has completed a number of installations and are continuously receiving a high level of enquiries for their new automated spraying solution.
Opening up the possibilities for cost effective automatic spraying technology to all levels of industry, the GSF range can be coupled with flexible payment plans from Homag Finance making these machines more affordable than ever!
