Intelligent Paint Kitchen

Cost-Effective Control of Electric and Pneumatic Pumps

The benefits of an Intelligent Paint Kitchen

icons-exceptional-results_sm.jpg

Exceptional results

Optimizes the balance and performance of your paint supply and paint circulation system(s), leading to a high quality finish.

Smoother pump operation, flow, and pressure control guarantee products with a superior finish.

Consistent quality is ensured by constant pressure due to smart sensors, monitoring, and adjustment.

Control of paint flow and pressure reduces paint shear and keeps your paint in optimal condition.

icons-maximum-efficiency_sm.jpg

Maximum efficiency

Monitors and controls pressure, flow rates, tank levels and agitator speeds to ensure your system is operating at peak efficiency.

Plug and play hardware and ready-to-use software for easy installation, configuration, operation and troubleshooting.

Start with pump control and gradually add components as needed and as your budget allows, from one to multiple stations.

Maintenance and human intervention are kept to a minimum. This makes your operation not only safer, but more efficient overall.

icons-advance-control_sm.jpg

Advanced control

Real-time access to key paint circulation data from inside and outside the paint mix room enables quick diagnosis of issues.

Control all the tasks and functions of your paint supply and paint circulation system from outside the hazardous area via an HMI.

Can be implemented as a standalone self-controlling system or integrated with your PLC with a simple handshake.

All data can be visualized and stored, allowing you to analyze and track your complete finishing process.

icons-reduce-costs_sm.jpg

Reduced costs

An inexpensive way to take full control of your paint mix room. You save on installation, operating, programming, and paint costs.

A very cost-effective way to control your paint mix room, especially compared to traditional custom-built systems.

No need for expensive programming: Just connect all the hardware, set some parameters, and you’re ready to go.

Your investment and installation costs are much lower than a custom-built system, increasing your competitiveness.

icons-top-productivity_sm.jpg

Top productivity

Ensures your paint circulation systems are operational at all times, informing you and adjusting when necessary.

The system reduces the risk of unexpected downtime, with downtime caused by maintenance kept to a minimum.

The system can run on its own and will continue to collect data and adjust accordingly, even if your PLC is down.

Connected via the internet, the system is ready for Industry 4.0 and is equipped with the technology for IoT.

 


HOW AN INTELLIGENT PAINT KITCHEN WORKS

The Intelligent Paint Kitchen is a smart set of sensors, actuators, and control modules that communicate with each other to optimize the performance of your paint supply and paint circulation system. It allows pump control (pressure and flow rates), tank control (tank levels and agitator speeds) and overall (remote) control.
