Hofe Regalsysteme - Grass green shelves with the PXM powder center

Shelving rack manufacturer invests in WAGNER powder coating system

The trend is toward individual colors and intelligent coatings

At a glance

  • The WAGNER powder unit enables fast color changes without color contamination
  • The color change time is now between 10 and 20 minutes – compared to two hours with the old system
  • PXM powder center with automatic fresh powder feeding allows working from fluid tanks (e.g. for long metallics charges) or directly from the original container (for short charges)
  • Safe, clean and ergonomic working conditions and low operating costs

Customer challenge

The surface has to be flawless, while there is also a rising demand for individual colors and intelligent coatings, which are anti-static or anti-bacterial. To better meet these customer requirements, the company needed to replace its ageing coating installation. When selecting the new system, a high degree of productivity was also important – rapid color change, time-saving cleaning and minimal powder consumption.

Our solution

By opting for a coating system with a WAGNER PXM powder center, the color change time now is 20 minutes at a maximum, compared to two hours with the old system. This is possible thanks to a sophisticated design and automation. The system‘s powder recovery process fulfills the customer‘s requirements for a sustainable solution. The WAGNER system also enables safe and ergonomic working conditions, as well as low energy consumption. Julius vom Hofe is now able to meet customer demands in a flexible and yet economically viable manner.

We've been using the WAGNER powder center since May 2015 and are extremely satisfied. Not just in terms of the costs and coating quality. Our employees have also reported that the new system makes their work significantly easier.
