Liosaplast - Menu-controlled paint changes for greater security

Investment in efficient powder coating

Short processing times, reduced handling and top coating quality - these were the key requirements for a leading Swiss contract coating company's new surface system. WAGNER's SuperCube integrated fast paint-changing system with the new PXS powder feeder centre has mastered them with ease.

At a glance

  • Assembly of a completely new surface system with cutting-edge powder and liquid coating
  • In addition to the latest coating technology, the key requirements included simple operation, fast, safe and clean paint changes as well as optimal ventilation in the booth – this was implemented with the WAGNER SuperCube color change system and the WAGNER PXS powder center
  • WAGNER's concept is distinguished by its flexibility and high power reserves. It will allow Liosaplast to ensure reliable and high-quality processing of all customer orders far into the future.

Customer challenge

An increasingly demanding customer base, ever-more specialist orders and the challenge of establishing itself in the international marketplace prompted Liosaplast to make the biggest investment in the company's history. Some of the surface systems and infrastructure were becoming outdated. To handle large orders within the required timescales in future, production needed to be more efficient, energy-saving and flexible. A continuously growing spectrum of parts and ever-shorter lead times were causing increasing difficulties, in particular in powder coating.

Our solution

Liosaplast found the most convincing concept at WAGNER, in the form of the SuperCube paint-change system and brand-new PXS powder centre. The optimal flow of air in the booth makes it possible for the Corona powder guns to work with very low settings. This means very high transfer efficiency and low wear. The ergonomic operation of the PXS is supported by the professional user interface for the touch-screen. Clearly legible text, meaningful icons and logical menu navigation assist everyday work. In addition, a high level of coating is guaranteed by a vibrating container with optimal fluidisation, a very short suction run and an ultrasonic sieve that is fully integrated in the powder tank.
