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.

The decoating unit for flexible use at various workstations in immediate vicinity of the paint shop.

The Coating OFF-Standard is run under the load by a manual lift truck and easily moved to any location. The feet are equipped with adjusting screws to align the unit, making it ready for operation immediately.
