BASF Coatings inaugurated of new Robot Application Center

Published on 2003-08-08. Author : SpecialChem


BASF Coatings has set up a large scale and highly advanced paint testing unit called Robot Application Center (RACE) at its Münster plant in Germany. Costing around three million euros, it has ended an 18-month planning and construction phase.

The unit allows line coating of original-size body panels to be simulated. In the past, bodies passed through a simple coating unit with fixed paint atomizers whereas this new technology allows fast and flexible deployment of high-rotation atomizers and conventional pneumatic spray guns through a quick-change coupling.

Along with internal training possibilities, the Robot Application Center is also available to automotive industry customers for training purposes.
