Precise powder enamel application with a robot has many benefits, such as :
– lowest specific enamel consumption
– strongly reduced over-spray
– small factory footprint
Below a short video of a recently commissioned system for baking ovens with Nordson
Encore PE spray gun and Encore LT gun controller by Noto Finishing.
Nordson Corporation introduce their “nLighten” technology for the Encore manual powder coating gun range.
Improved visibility with nLighten technology
This kit improve the visibility during application and may so reduce rework & rejects and increase efficiency & safety.
Suitable for powder paint & powder enamel operations.
Visited the Tecnargilla 2018 show in Rimini some weeks ago and saw there a new application method called “Steam Spraying”.

Depending upon the annual production volume, it might be interesting to reduce labor cost by integrating all equipment of an enameling plant for water heaters and/or solar boilers.
Such integration may be done with traditional monorail conveyors in combination with automatic transfer devices, like on the picture below.
Automatic transfer unit for large boilers
Alternatively a so-called power & free conveyor system may be used.
This conveyor type consist of two conveyor tracks above each other.
Example of power and free conveyor
On the lower level free cars may run, while via the power chain at the upper level the free cars may be (dis)connected and transported.
Nowadays there are P+F systems, which thanks to a very special transfer system even include the transport of products within the enameling furnace.

The availability of spare parts is essential for keeping your enameling plant up & running.
DTC has 30+ years experience with the design, delivery & installation of equipment for industrial porcelain (vitreous) enameling plants.
Over these years we have developed a broad industrial network, which enables us to source criticial spare parts for enamelling equipment previously supplied by :
Smit Sinus Enamelling
Alliance Enamel Engineering
Allied Enamel Supplies
contact DTC, if you have any difficulties to find replacement parts for your enameling facilities.
Over the last couple of months, we have been working hard to enlarge and improve our webshop and are happy to annouce that today we relaunched it with its new domain name :
Porcelain enamel may be applied via a variety of wet application methods, such as dipping, flow-coating, slushing and spraying.
Originally application of porcelain enamel was done manually, as shown at the pictures below.
With increasing labor cost and production volumes, manual application was replaced by automatic application. In order to reduce enameling cost and/or improve the coating quality, more advanced applications systems, such as electrostatic wet spraying, robot spraying and electrophoresis, where introduced in the 50’s and 60’s.
Nowadays wet enamel is typically used for small production runs (of special colors), special enamels and/or when the product design isn’t suitable for electrostatic dry application.
Well-know liquid enamel application equipment producers include : Binks, Devilbiss, ECCO, EIC, Eisenmann, Fisher, Sames, VGT.
DTC may assist you to evaluate, which application method and/or equipment is most suitable for your products, and if required also help you with sourcing / procuring the appropriate machines.
