At a glance

  • WAGNER IceBreaker pumps are extremely reliable and durable

Customer challenge

The quality of the coating has a direct influence on lifetime, especially in the case of equipment which is used in harsh winter conditions. Since all painting is done manually due to the company‘s diverse product range and small batch sizes, the result depends crucially on the skill of the personnel and the quality of the coating equipment. All components are sourced from the same manufacturer. When Springer needed to renew their equipment, they opted again for WAGNER.

Our solution

The reliable and durable IceBreaker pumps are ideally suitable for the coating of heavy-duty products. The precise measurement and control technology of the FlexControl plus guarantees maximum process reliability and exact compliance with the set mixing ratios. Changing the used material (currently solvent-based paints) wouldn‘t be a problem for the system technology. The easy operation, ergonomic design and excellent atomization of the manual gun GM 4700AC generates perfect coating results, even for workpieces with complicated geometries.

We are completely satisfied with our WAGNER equipment and delighted with the results it gives us. Sourcing all our equipment from one manufacturer also means we have a single point of contact, which is a big advantage in day-today practice. Our experience of WAGNER’s customer service so far has also been entirely positive in terms of expertise, support and spare parts.
