A state of the art so­lu­tion

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

Tem­per­zone Ltd (Auck­land) had a chal­lenge. Their paint line was age­ing, slow­ing and cre­at­ing a sig­nif­i­cant bot­tle­neck with the in­crease in pro­duc­tion to meet the es­ca­lat­ing de­mand for their large range of com­mer­cial air con­di­tion­ing units. In their quest for a state of the art so­lu­tion, Tem­per­zone turned to Jonassen In­dus­trial Projects Lim­ited to re­place their ex­ist­ing plant and pro­vide a fully au­to­mated pow­der coat­ing plant.

JIPL un­der­took the full de­sign, pro­ject man­age­ment, in­stal­la­tion, su­per­vi­sion, and com­mis­sion­ing ser­vices. The new paint line is lo­cated on a pur­pose built 700m2 mez­za­nine plat­form to utilise the height of the build­ing. JIPL’s com­pre­hen­sive turnkey so­lu­tion in­cludes a power and free over­head con­veyor to trans­port prod­ucts from the man­u­fac­tur­ing floor up to the high level, a fully stain­less steel, four-stage, and spray pre-treat­ment line (36 m long with the process tanks lo­cated in a bund on the lower level fac­tory floor). The over­head con­veyor con­tin­ues through a pre-coat­ing dry­ing oven, an in­te­grated Nord­son au­tospray pow­der ap­pli­ca­tion unit and a cus­tom de­signed two stage, 38m long, cur­ing oven with JIPL’s unique in­no­va­tive air seals.

Cured items are au­to­mat­i­cally trans­ported down to floor level for of­fload­ing into the assem­bly depart­ment.

Spe­cial fea­tures of the in­stal­la­tion in­clude a JIPL de­signed waste­water treat­ment plant. The chem­i­cal tanks and the WwTP are lo­cated un­der the mez­za­nine – the most space ef­fi­cient ar­range­ment.

A com­puter based to­tal feed­back sys­tem pro­vides Tem­per­zone’s man­age­ment team with full con­trol­la­bil­ity of the plant, op­ti­mised and stream­lined pro­duc­tion, guar­an­teed con­sis­tent qual­ity con­trol and the pro­vi­sion of de­tailed pro­duc­tion data and trend in­for­ma­tion. JIPL fo­cused too on re­duc­ing the op­er­at­ing and energy costs. The re­sult is an ex­tremely ef­fec­tive busi­ness so­lu­tion and the most tech­no­log­i­cally ad­vanced pow­der coat­ing plant in Aus­trala­sia.

Fully com­mis­sioned in May 2014, the plant achieved all ex­pec­ta­tions and pro­vided Tem­per­zone (Auck­land) with the en­hanced ca­pac­ity they re­quired, says JIPL.
