Vertik-Al has further enhanced the efficiency and quality of its powder coating service with the installation of a new vertical powder coating booth, the Cube Grande from SAT (Surface Aluminium Technologies) SRL.
A new generation of powder coating technology, it is the first booth of its kind to be installed in the UK. This investment enables Vertik-Al to offer its customers the very latest and highest standards in surface finishing, including gloss, matt, metallics and textured finishes.
Installed into the existing line, the booth has many benefits, not least the ability to produce more coated product due to its efficient operational capacity. This includes shorter colour changes and more targeted application, with less potential for cross contamination. As a result, output will greatly increase in line with the company’s expanding customer demands.
With its revolutionary ‘V’ shape design and optimised layout of components, tests prove that the Cube Grande application efficiency (percentage of fresh powder directly applied on the profiles) is markedly higher than older less efficient booths.
These improvements offer environmental advantages, factors which go some way to support customers in their ecological endeavours.
This is the fourth in a series of multimillion pound planned investments for the powder coating specialist. In recent years, Vertik-Al has also installed two Magic Compact horizontal powder coating plants and an upgrade of an existing horizontal line at its Birmingham-based facility.
As with the Cube Grande, the horizontal plants utilise Gema automation and gun technology and provide the very best efficiencies in powder consumption and superior quality coatings.
Investment such as this enables Vertik-Al to uphold its commitment to quality and maintain its reputed high standards. The company holds the QUALICOAT quality label and is proud to be a member of the Aluminium Federation (ALFED), the secretariat for QUALICOAT UK & Ireland. Vertik-Al remains the only applicator in the UK and Ireland to hold the GSB quality seal and has done so since 1994.
