When upgrading its pre-spray facilities, GJ Painters decided to install the Mach-Jet powder system from Sames, an Exel Industrial company.

GJ Painters is a job coater that has six production lines, each specialising in its own market segment.

One of the lines is a Trication phosphating powder paint application, which is mainly used for automotive and outdoor parts.

The company decided to upgrade the pre-spray facilities for weldings, cavities and hard to reach areas, as well as full coating of small series.

GJ searched the market for a top-quality manual spray-gun and powder delivery system.

Five selected suppliers demonstrated equipment and GJ set aside a one-week test period for each of the spray systems in full-scale production.

The spray guns were a mix of different charging systems and were tested on a range of different products and powders.

After testing, one spray system stood out as clear winner, the Sames Mach-Jet system with box feed.

This was due to high performance on the following features, which GJ rated as top priorities for its new system: powder delivery; charging of powder; appearance of powder; easy to use; customising of spray programs available; and easy to clean.

The Sames spray system has now been installed in the production line on a permanent basis.
