Herkules Hebetechnik - High-end coating for lifting platforms

Perfect surface coating of steel platforms

"Technology for People" is the slogan of Herkules, a workshop equipment supplier based in Kassel, Germany. The brand has been a byword for quality in the motor vehicle industry for 40 years, and is instantly recognizable by its blue and yellow lifting platforms. Perfect surface coating of its steel platforms, which often cope with heavy-duty jobs, is one of the factors that ensure quality. Also important to Herkules are efficiency and eco-friendliness, two more reasons the company now relies on painting equipment from WAGNER.

Customer challenge

Perfect surface coating of Herkules‘ steel platforms, which often cope with heavy-duty jobs, is one of the factors that ensure quality. Therefore, Herkules pays special attention to the mechanical and chemical resistance of its painted surfaces. The specifications for the new painting system ordered by Herkules included high quality and efficiency, plus eco-friendliness and reliable service.

Our solution

The core element of the new system is the electronic WAGNER FlexControl Smart for two-component mixing and dosing. With the previous finishing system, changing between the standard blue and yellow or special colors involved adjusting ballcocks. Today, the FlexControl Smart intelligent color management solution rules out operating errors and guarantees reproducible results. Optimally formulated for the WAGNER GM 5000 EAC electrostatic spray guns, the special paint enables better edge coating with less overspray, even on parts with difficult geometries. Welcome side effects are reduced booth cleaning and maintenance work.
