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.
