Cabycal will supply a liquid painting line to Sofitec

Valencia, February 22nd 2018.- Cabycal will design, manufacture and install a pre-treatment and painting line for the aerospace company Sofitec. This line will paint aeronautic parts in its new plant in Seville, which will be dedicated to automated surface processes and logistics management. With this new plant Sofitec expects to increase its annual production by 30%.

The line that Cabycal is designing will be composed of a robotic automatic painting booth with recirculation flow, a pressurized cabin painting booth, a flash-off zone (pre evaporated), a curing oven and a clean room that it also is the download area. The line is scheduled to start working in the second quarter of 2018.

This line joins others that Cabycal has designed for the aeronautical sector. For Emilio Ferrando, General Director of Cabycal, the projects for the aerostructures sector "are a big challenge since the level of demand is very high. This installation is characterized by combining automatically the anodized with the painting without having to pick up the parts from the rack until the end of the process".

Sofitec is an international aerospace company specialized in the development of integral solutions for the manufacture and assembly of metal and composite aerostructures. Sofitec's clients include Airbus Group, Bombardier, Embraer, Spirit Aerosystems, Premium Aerotec and Facc.

Cabycal delivers an automated passivation line of aluminum parts to Gestamp

Valencia, January 29th 2018.- Cabycal has designed, manufactured and installed a passivation line for aluminum parts for the Gestamp plant in Newton Aycliffe (England).
The pretreatment process of the pieces is carried out in a total of nine tanks, in which the following process is carried out: degreasing, washing with industrial water, acid for the passivation process and washing with demineralized water.
After the immersion process in the tanks, automatic drying takes place inside a convection oven with recirculation and heating with a burner with natural gas.
The pieces are transported throughout the process by three automatic overhead travelling cranes, a power & free conveyor and two transfer systems to transfer the parts of the conveyor to the bridge cranes and vice versa.
Cabycal has previously supplied three e-coat lines to Gestamp for its factories in Zaragoza (Spain), Wroclaw (Poland) and Chattanooga (USA).
