Applicators for top-quality automatic finishing

Graco’s ProBell Rotary Applicators deliver incredible finishing, transfer efficiency and precision spraying. Not only that: they’re lightweight and compact, making them perfect for lower payload robots or reciprocators. And with their flexible shaping air features, they’re an excellent choice for a vast array of applications and materials.
 

ProBell

Faster Flushing
Superior finishing quality

ProBell Rotary Bell Atomisers bring convenience and performance to any finishing application. Their blended shaping air optimises paint atomisation and patterns and works with the automatic atomiser to guarantee quality and transfer efficiency.

Flexibility
Widely deployable

By blending the inner and outer shaping air, the ProBell obtains the exact pattern required to spray complex shapes. It’s compatible with solvent-borne and waterborne materials, in electrostatic and non-electrostatic applications.

Costs
Efficient spraying

Combining rotary bell atomisation with electrostatic technology means up to 95% transfer efficiency. The ProBell is precision-balanced for rotating up to 60,000 RPM, ensuring precision in complex applications, with lower waste and production costs.

Higher Accuracy
Designed for automation

The ProBell is a lightweight, compact solution that can be mounted on lower payload robots or reciprocators. It can be integrated into an existing PLC set-up or combined with Graco monitors and you can expand your control options with ProBell controllers.

 


 


The Probell rotary bell atomiser explained

The ProBell Applicator range consists of high-performance paint applicators for automatic finishing. Thousands of customers have chosen this solution for its guaranteed top-notch finishing quality and its superb transfer efficiency. But what makes it so special?

ProBell Applicators
  • Versatile solution for automatic painting applications
    The ProBell Rotary Applicator is designed for automatic painting applications. It can be mounted in a fixed position, on a reciprocating arm, or on a hollow or solid wrist robot.

  • Next-generation rotary bell applicator technology
    This rotary bell applicator atomises paint and coatings, achieving up to 95% transfer efficiency. The fluid is distributed by a cup which spins at 20,000 to 60,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). Because of the high rotation speed, the paint is subjected to high centrifugal force.

  • High-quality finish thanks to unique blended shaping air features   
    ProBell’s blended shaping air technique combines inner and outer shaping air to optimise paint atomisation, pattern shape and transfer efficiency. This unique feature allows it to shape and propel the pattern toward the part, improving transfer efficiency and guaranteeing a high-quality finish.

  • Electrostatic wraparound effect
    To achieve maximum transfer efficiency, electrostatic effect is added. The electrostatic charge is created in the 100-kilovolt power supply within the rotary atomiser.

  • Vast array of industrial applications
    Thanks to its excellent transfer efficiency and the high-precision patterns obtained by its inner and outer shaping air, the ProBell is ideal for many industries, from automotive tier-1 and tier-2 suppliers (bumpers, rims, shock absorbers) to companies manufacturing tubes, cylinder-shaped objects, extruded aluminum parts, and glass.

o    ProBell rotary bell cups precisely atomize many types of coatings into a variety of pattern sizes and flow rates.

o    Pre-configured applicators include metal bell cups with serrated edges and standard plated surfaces.

o    You can also opt for a metal bell cup without serrations or a smooth-edged composite construction bell cup.

o    All metal bell cups have an aluminum core with a plated surface (standard or high wear for abrasive materials).
