The Metallisation Arc701/S700(16) twin wire arc spray system is a unique blend of ability and innovation. It brings together the proven performance of our Arc700 pistol plus the very latest technological advances. For instance, the new S700(16) energiser still offers high spray rates for reduced spraying times over large areas but is now combined 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. The S700(16) energizer features sealed electronics for excellent reliability in the harshest of spray environments.
The design also allows for multiple customer-specific packaging options for the wire drive and dispense. In one option, for example, the unit is neatly mounted on the energiser, leaving it free to swivel and follow the operator when spraying. Other options include floor or trolley mounting of the wire drive unit.
The drive unit is very robust, ensuring supreme reliability in the most arduous of site conditions. The lightweight, hand-held 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. Various packaging options, including an extended site trolley, allow the energizer to be sited up to 25m from the pistol spraying area. Alternatively, the drive unit can be mounted neatly on the energiser, leaving it free to swivel and follow the operator when spraying.
