Valencia, 29th March, 2019.- Cabycal has designed, manufactured and installed a new automatic powder coating line for the Murcian firm Formas Descanso located in Yecla (Spain). The new line has allowed this company to automate the painting process that was previously done manually.
In this line, Cabycal has implemented new products of its own design and manufacture, such as the paint booth, the cyclone and the water quality improvement system. The system has a 2.5-stage pre-treatment tunnel with osmosis and decalcification process, a drying oven, an antistatic plastic booth for automatic painting and a "U" polymerized oven.
The new treatment tunnel performs a degreasing process that stands out for the protection with deposition of conversion nanoparticles. The implanted pretreatment system supposes an increase of the quality of the baths and of the final washing, since it counts on a descalcification and osmotized water equipment able to obtain a high quality in the industrial use from water of high saline content. In addition, the treatment tunnel performs a process at low temperature and is equipped at the exit with a drop blowing system, whose objective is the reduction of energy consumption during drying.
The "U" drying oven, making the most of an installation implemented by Cabycal in 1996, has been updated to increase its energy efficiency. In addition, the polymerized oven is thermally insulated with high-density rockwool panels.
New in this line, an antistatic plastic booth designed by Cabycal has been installed. This cabin has a self-cleaning system in automatic cycle and integrates the technology of rapid color change in the application of powder paint, which makes easier the customization of Formas Descanso's products.
In addition, the line also has a dust recovery cyclone with integrated sieve and a high performance absolute filtration module developed and manufactured by Cabycal.
A PLC and an HMI with Ethernet communication have been incorporated to control the entire painting process. This equipment manages all control maneuvers of all elements of the paint line and allows remote assistance.
"This installation has been a very interesting challenge," explains Emilio Ferrando, CEO of Cabycal, "since the line initially introduced in 1996 was powered by diesel. With the rise in the price of fuels, the installation was adapted to wood pellet burners and in the latter improvement the line has been equipped with a natural gas burner system ".
Cabycal has previously worked with other companies in the furniture sector. Some of its most important clients in this sector have been Dupen, Actiu, Mobiltac, Hilding Anders, Cocinas Carbel and Navarro Azorín, among others.
Formas Descanso is a family company specialized in rest systems for domestic and geriatric use. The Murcian company manufactures a wide range of rest systems, articulated beds, fixed bed frames, beds for companions, mattresses, pillows and electric beds for care use.
