Automotive Manufacturing Solutions
Driving Durability & Loyalty
A perfect finish and sound seal not only insulate and make a vehicle look good; they drive durability and consumer loyalty. Improve the quality and efficiency of your automotive production with Graco paint shop solutions. Proven results include lower labor and material costs, and increased precision.
Seam sealing seals out dirt, corrosives, and water on the upperbody, interior, and exterior of the car. Water ingression and corrosion protection need an optimized and repeatable process within the paint shop. Graco has a range of sealer pumps, metering systems and applicators for manual and automatic processes, whatever size of material delivery containers you may have.
Precision Continuous Flow Metering & Dispensing Systems (PCF)
Our PCF Metering System provides a precise, continuous flow for sealant and adhesive dispensing. This closed-loop, continuous-flow metering and dispense system offers high accuracy without costly reload times. With PCF material is continuously metered and controlled, providing accurate control with ...
E-Flo SP Electric Pumps and Supply Systems
The E-Flo SP electric supply pump is designed for industrial and automotive sealant and adhesive application. This advanced pump will drastically increase efficiency, improve system control capabilities, optimize process performance, and provide critical performance data.
Minimize change-over time and maximize efficiency when transferring one component sealants, adhesives, and sound deadeners from bulk containers to industrial metering and dispense systems. No other drum unloaders are powered by electric or pneumatic pumps.
iQ Dispense Valves
iQ Dispense Valves deliver long-lasting and dependable performance for single component sealant and adhesive dispensing applications.
Dura-Flo Pumps and Supply Systems
Dura-Flo pumps and supply systems provide uniform control and delivery for sealant and adhesive materials. These durable pumps can achieve high pressures without compromising flow stability. Whatever your application, our supply pumps can be integrated into your process for enhanced efficiencies.
Liquid-applied sound deadening materials are vibration-damping or sound-absorbing materials used to reduce the noise from vibrations. Common application areas include the interior floor pan, rear wheel well, and the dash panel. Graco has affordable, high-quality equipment solutions resulting in lower labor and material costs, and increased precision.
The heart of every paint shop is the paint kitchen. Mixing room equipment combines primers, base and clear coats, supplying the correct color, volume and pressure to the paint spray booth.
Painters or robots apply coatings in the paint spray booth. Regulators and positive displacement flow control send the right mix and color to electrostatic applicators and manual spray guns.
Controlling automotive interior noise levels is important. To create a quieter ride, many automotive manufacturers use acoustical foam to fill and seal roof pillars or other frame members that would otherwise transmit noise. The Graco NVH system easily allows you dispense acoustical foam into these cavities to prevent road, wind and engine noise from entering the cabin. Achieve lower costs and less re-work by using Graco’s proven HFR system for acoustical foams.
Unique Research Explains Subtle, but Costly, Automotive Finishing Challenge
An automotive factory paint shop suffered from inconsistent quality. Certain colors or metallics that provided high-end finishes sometimes went flat or lacked luster. The dull paint had to be flushed and discarded at great expense.
Why the costly waste? Industrial finishing experts uncovered the real problem.
