Arcspray 528E(16)-ICC High Throughput


The new Metallisation ARC528E(16)-ICC high throughput twin wire arc spray system, with the 700 amp energiser, offers the ultimate in reliability and precision for demanding, high throughput production applications. This includes both anti-corrosion and engineering coatings. Wire drive is supplied at the heavy-duty pistol by a highly accurate, powerful DC servo motor, driving a robust gearbox and drive roller system.

The high performance pistol incorporates proven Metallisation technology, including a unique constant geometry (CG) head. This ensures smooth and consistent spray quality and minimal downtime when changing consumable spares. A new addition to the 528E system in 2008 is the quick release supply package option. To further reduce machine downtime, the supplies package can be chosen with a quick release option, enabling the pistol to be removed quickly from the line and either maintained or exchanged for a spare pistol for preventative maintenance routines.

Also in 2008 is a new range of PLC controlled energisers with closed loop current control. This enables the operator to set the spray current independent of wire type before starting the job, enabling easier setup and protection of the system from over-current. The control function is now controlled by a simple PLC which ensures improved reliability as less component parts are required. It also makes fault finding simple using a standard multimeter with the I/O for the PLC. All of the control electronics are in a sealed area of the energiser to protect them from the often harsh, production environment.

The 528E-ICC high throughput is offered with the 700 amp energiser. As an alternative, a lower throughput version is also offered with either 250 or 350 amp energisers. For a higher throughput, a 1000 amp energiser is also available. Please refer to the appropriate brochure and specification for more details on these products or consult with Metallisation to determine the most suitable system for your requirements.
