Greenfield is the only sub-contractor in the UK to have made the substantial investment of two independent, state of the art, fully automated powder coating lines. Both systems apply the powder paint in fast colour change booths from Nordson called COLORMAX™. This gives the business total flexibility for the customers to process two independently different coloured consignments simultaneously.
Plant Two houses the second Nordson powder coating line which has a larger working envelope of 660 X 1300 X 3000 horizontally. This plant also has a conveyorised system designed to take medium to large production runs incorporating Nordson touch screen technology and PLC controls. In addition it monitors all the digital temperature displays and burner settings. As well as remote automatic distance monitoring moves the gun to the optimum place for part coverage which is activated from motion curtain as production enters the booth. Components which have been loaded onto the powder coating line are constantly monitored though three stages. Firstly cleaning, then the painting application, and finally the stoving process, ensuring a high quality powder coated finish. Negative air seals work on entry and exit to minimise both heat losses through the openings and any disturbance of painted product leaving the oven.
