WIWA Fleximix assists agricultural engineers
Airblast Eurospray have recently installed new WIWA painting equipment in agricultural engineer, GT Bunning & Sons’ Norfolk based coating facility.
GT Bunning is a well-established manufacturer of spreaders for the agricultural market with more than 50 years’ experience producing quality, reliable agricultural machinery. The company have always placed a high emphasis on efficiency and enhancing quality and therefore wanted to ensure that they chose the best equipment available. After extensive research they deduced that the WIWA range would offer them the most efficient solution and the highest quality output.
WIWA have more than 60 years’ experience in producing paint spraying equipment and constantly strive to develop the highest quality equipment and the most innovative solutions and as such were a perfect fit for this project.
Airblast Eurospray installed two WIWA Fleximix I 3K systems along with WIWA Phoenix 11032 airless pumps. The airless pumps supply the coatings to the Fleximix systems via high pressure heaters, using electric agitators and feed pumps to assist the process from the larger bulk containers.
Greg Shepherd, Managing Director said “Since the installation, the line has operated efficiently and has significantly reduced the level of maintenance that was required with the old system.
The equipment automatically calculates and mixes the correct quantity of paint or primer, hardener and thinners eliminating the chances of human error.
Both operator and maintenance teams have seen a benefit and we also have the commercial advantage of a three-colour option that can be implemented within minutes.
The current climate dictates that cost savings along with time efficiencies are even more important, and this installation has already delivered above expectation.
Environmental impact is also of great importance and this system has certainly helped reduce waste paint and thinners.
We purchased the WIWA equipment from Airblast Eurospray Ltd. after extensive trials were carried out at our premises; we evaluated both the WIWA range and other well-known systems. I believe we have made the right choice”.
