Fully automatic and enviromentally friendly paint stripping of skid cross member connection by means of inliner eddy current

Another German OEM has chosen the eddy current paint stripping system for the maintenance of cross member connections of the skids of its E-Coat and painting line. Pursuant to the manufacturing conditions at BMW Leipzig, we suggested the implementation of an inline paint stripping concept.


Coating OFF Automatic

The decoater unit for use at the suspension rig of the conveyor system; it is loaded and unloaded by a person parallel to being hooked on.

The base unit

Is comprised of aluminium system profiles and is tightly encased in aluminium panels. The housing is easily accessible for maintenance and assembly work and does not have to be screwed to the floor.

The following units are installed in the base unit:

  • Main electrical connection
  • Control unit
  • Eddy-current generator
  • Multi-level air filtering unit

The process unit

Automatic decoating is carried out in the customised process unit.

It is equipped with:

  • lateral sliding carriage
  • decoating station with linear unit and decoater
  • brush station with 2 rotating brushes

The components


It moves from top to bottom, exposed to eddy current and returned. The temperature is set by the temperature setting on the unit.

Brush stand

The workpiece moves on the slide carriage into the double rotating brushes and is cleaned metallically bright. The brush speed can be infinitely varied by a frequency converter.

Filtering unit

The vapours and small paint particles are cleaned by a multi-level air filter and fed out to the room air.
