Automotive Refinishing body shop equipment

Image description

We understand the requirement of automotive refinishers to achieve superior finish with no room for errors or reworks as it depletes the profits and wastes valuable resources in the life cycle of an accidental repair vehicle. The idea is to achieve maximum efficiency by investing minimal in capital equipment.

We at ARIA strive to make our automotive refinishing equipment the most efficient in operational costs by continuously updating our designs with the latest technological upgrades in the industry. To ensure complete process efficiency we offer a free workshop designing service where we design the complete flow of your workshop based on available space and workload demand. These designs are discussed with the end user and refined for specific customized requirements before commencing with the commercial side of the project.

The complete turnkey workshop development is undertaken by ARIA's experienced engineers from concept to commissioning. The most important equipment of the body shop is deemed to be the spray booth oven and hence first the space for spray booths is identified including the processes equipment which must be installed before the spray booths and the equipment that must be installed after the spray booths.

A paint mixing room, also known as a paint mixing station or paint kitchen, is a specialized area within automotive refinishing body shops where paints, primers, and coatings are prepared and mixed according to specific formulations. This area is crucial for ensuring accurate color matching, consistent paint quality, and efficient workflow. Here are key features and functions of a paint mixing room:

Controlled Environment:

Paint mixing rooms are designed to provide a controlled environment that minimizes contamination and ensures accurate paint mixing. They are typically enclosed spaces with sealed walls, floors, and ceilings to prevent dust, debris, and airborne contaminants from entering.

Ventilation System:

A ventilation system is installed in the paint mixing room to exhaust fumes and maintain air quality. This system helps remove harmful vapors generated during paint mixing processes, protecting the health and safety of workers.

Mixing Equipment:

Paint mixing rooms are equipped with specialized mixing equipment such as computerized paint mixing systems or manual mixing stations. These systems accurately measure and mix paint components, including pigments, binders, and solvents, to achieve the desired color and consistency.

Color Matching Tools:

Paint mixing rooms are outfitted with color matching tools and equipment, such as spectrophotometers and color chips, to accurately match the color of the paint to the vehicle's original color or desired color specification.

Storage and Organization:

Paint mixing rooms feature storage cabinets, shelves, and racks for organizing and storing paint cans, containers, and mixing components. Proper storage helps maintain inventory control and ensures that paint supplies are readity accessible when needed

Safety Features:

Safety measures, including fire suppression systems, emergency eyewash stations, and personal protective equipment (PPE), are implemented in paint mixing rooms to protect workers from hazards associated with handling paint chemicals and solvents.

Workspace Layout:

The layout of a paint mixing room is designed for efficient workflow, with designated areas for mixing, measuring, and dispensing paint components. Workstations are arranged to minimize the risk of spills and accidents during the mixing process.

Compliance with Regulations:

Paint mixing rooms must comply with local regulations and safety standards governing the handling, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials. Regular inspections and maintenance are conducted to ensure compliance and safe operation.

Paint mixing rooms are regularly cleaned and maintained to prevent buildup of paint residues and contaminants. Floors, surfaces, and equipment are cleaned using appropriate cleaning agents and methods to maintain a clean and safe working environment.

Overall, a paint mixing room is an essential component of automotive refinishing body shops, providing a dedicated space for accurate paint mixing, color matching, and inventory management. It plays a critical role in ensuring the quality and consistency of paint finishes applied to vehicles.

Aria Aluminum chassis / structural repair Booths

Aria Infrared curing systems

Image description

Infrared curing systems are used in automotive refinishing body shops as a method to accelerate the drying and curing of paint coatings applied to vehicles. These systems utilize infrared radiation to heat the painted surface, which promotes faster evaporation of solvents and accelerates the cross-linking of paint molecules, resulting in a more rapid curing process. Here's a closer look at infrared curing systems:

Infrared Lamps: Infrared curing systems typically consist of infrared lamps mounted on adjustable arms or panels. These lamps emit infrared radiation, which consists of electromagnetic waves with wavelengths longer than visible light but shorter than microwaves. The lamps can be positioned to target specific areas of the vehicle's surface.

Types of Infrared Lamps:

Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR):

These lamps emit high-intensity infrared radiation with wavelengths between 0.76 and 3 micrometers. SWIR lamps provide rapid heating and are effective for curing paint coatings quickly

Medium-Wave Infrared (MWIR): MWIR lamps emit infrared radiation with wavelengths between 3 and 8 micrometers. They offer a more gentle heating process and are suitable for curing sensitive substrates or heat-sensitive components.

Control Systems: Infrared curing systems may include control systems to regulate the intensity and duration of infrared radiation exposure. This allows technicians to adjust the curing parameters based on factors such as paint type, substrate material, and ambient conditions.

Versatility:

Infrared curing systems can be used for curing various types of paint coatings, including primers, basecoats, and clear coats. They are effective for both solvent-based and water-based paint systems.

Efficiency:

Compared to conventional drying methods such as air drying or forced air drying, infrared curing systems offer significant time savings. They can reduce drying times from hours to minutes, allowing for faster turnaround times in the refinishing process.

Uniform Heating:

Infrared lamps provide uniform heating across the painted surface, minimizing the risk of uneven drying or curing. This helps ensure consistent paint finishes without streaks or imperfections.

Energy Efficiency:

Infrared curing systems are generally more energy-efficient than traditional drying methods since they directly transfer heat to the painted surface without heating the surrounding air. This results in lower energy consumption and operating costs.

Safety Considerations:

While infrared curing systems are generally safe when used properly, precautions must be taken to prevent overheating and potential fire hazards. Adequate ventilation and safety protocols should be in place to ensure the health and safety of technicians.

Overall, infrared curing systems offer automotive refinishing body shops an efficient and effective method for accelerating the drying and curing of paint coatings, ultimately improving productivity and quality in the refinishing process
