Advantages of painting equipment
The advantages of having a conveyorised painting system are
briefly stated below.
a) Continuous painting of either varied types of components
or similar components is ensured.
b) Increased output possible due to round the clock
c) Effective utilization of limited space.
d) Saving in labour force due to considered reduction in
e) Reduction in operator fatigue due to pre-determined speed
and convenient height.
f) Effective supervision and control possible.
g) Consistent high quality finish achieved.
Selection of the correct type of conveyor depends upon
quantity, size, shape and weight of the components and the
processes to be followed. Some commonly used conveyors are
1. The Chain Conveyor consists of one or more endless chains
that travel along the entire conveyor path. Loads are
carried directly on the chain links or on specially designed
elements attached to the chains. This type of conveyor is
ideally suited for the overhead movement of light
2. The Crossbar Conveyor consists of a single or double
strand of endless chains upporting spaced, removable or
attached 'sticks' or crossbars from which materials are hung
or festooned while being processed.
Ideal applications: Combined dip painting and drying
operation or spray painting and drying operation, where
generally camel back type of ovens are used.
Examples : Automobile wheels and cycle frames.
3. The Trolley Conveyor is the most versatile type of
conveyor due to its capability of following complicated
routes and taking horizontal and inclined runs, vertical
curves and horizontal turns. This type of conveyor consists
of trolleys made up of heavy duty wheels with bearings and
drop forged brackets. The trolleys are joined together by
means of welded steel linages. Loads are suspended
from attachments bolted to the trolley brackets.
Generally used for overhead handling of sheet metal
components and other light items, where the load per trolley
does not exceed 50 kg.
Examples : Components of refrigerators, air-conditioners and
other appliances, fans, scooters, tractor bodies.
4. The Drag Conveyor consists largely of one or more endless
propelling mediums, usually chains or cables, which drag
bulk materials in a trough, or along a defined path. This
type of conveyor is especially useful for processes where is
intermittent'stop and go' motion.
Applications: Automobile industry, especially for motor car
bodies and truck bodies.
If you wish to expand your paint shop and space is a

Selection of Painting Equipment:
The type of
spray gun and paint container, the availability of clean,
compressed air at the correct pressure, the environment in
which the product is painted, all affect the quality, the
ultimate finish on a painted product. Make sure the proper
