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.
